Nativity Play Accident
Watching your child perform in their first Nativity or Christmas show is one of the proudest and most emotional experiences a parent can have. Filled with wonder as they wear their halos made of tinsel and attempt to sing along to classics such as “Silent Night” your heart swells with joy and you really do begin to feel the Christmas spirit.
However, the problem with such performances is that they are often rushed together by overburdened staff and as a result mistakes can happen. If your child is performing on a stage that has been hastily erected by someone who may not know precisely what they are doing, then there is always a chance that someone is going to get injured.
If this happens then the Accident Advice Helpline are on hand to help you make a Nuneaton and Bedworth no win no fee claim on behalf of your child.
Types of accidents
It may be that the stage collapses due to a problem with the equipment itself, or because it has not been put together properly. In such a situation it may not necessarily be the person who put the stage together incorrectly that has a Nuneaton and Bedworth no win no fee claim made against them. It would very much depend on the situation and circumstances surrounding the accident and your solicitors would be able to investigate this for you.
For example, if a member of staff had been told to erect the stage, but had not been provided with any training on how to do this, then it would be the responsibility of the employer to ensure that it was safe for use. Failure to perform the appropriate safety checks could lead to injuries, and a Nuneaton and Bedworth no win no fee claim being made.
Of course, it’s not just children that might be injured in such situations. If you work or even volunteer in the school in question and are injured as a result of a fault with the staging equipment, then our solicitors could also help you make a Nuneaton and Bedworth no win no fee claim.
In order to be able to make a Nuneaton and Bedworth no win no fee claim the most important thing that your solicitors need to establish is that the accident was not your fault. If it is possible to determine this then it is highly likely that you are going to be awarded compensation once your claim is settled.
