There are over 10 million school children in the UK and some of these live in the Puttenham area of Surrey. Schools are mainly safe and stimulating environments where children learn and enjoy time with their friends. Some children even enjoy going to school! However, schools can also be the location of accidents in which both adults and children can get injured.
Children are very well known for being accident prone and a few bumps and bruises are considered a normal part of growing up. However, some school-based accidents are extremely serious and some are not just simple accidents – they are actually someone’s fault. If your child has been hurt in an accident that was not their fault at school you may be searching for a lawyer who works for ‘no win, no fee’ on Puttenham school cases to get some compensation.

What sorts of accidents do lawyers working for ‘no win, no fee’ on Puttenham cases deal with?
A common accident is where a child slips, trips or falls in school. These falls can be caused by someone else – may be because they did not guard a dangerous area properly. Other accidents are caused by defective electrical equipment or hazardous substances (such as cleaning chemicals). Sports injuries are common among older children and a compensation claim arises if the accident was caused by inadequate instruction or supervision. Finally, it is a sad fact that assaults and attacks can take place on school premises and very nasty injuries can be the result.
