The personal injury lawyer in Lancaster students use is AAH
Students at university are quite prone to getting injured, and the personal injury lawyer Lancaster students can use if they decide to launch a claim for compensation, is AAH, like many other students do all across the UK.
Learning academia and independence
Universities are sizeable establishments with many facilities on their premises including lecture halls, canteens, toilets, offices, gymnasiums etc. They are whole communities in themselves, many containing sleeping dorms. Going to university is an exciting time in a young person’s life; it’s not just about improving their education in academia, but is also about learning how to become independent and fend for themselves.
AAH – the personal injury lawyer in Lancaster students can rely on
As universities are big, busy places, just like anywhere, there’s a chance of being involved in some sort of accident or incident and sustaining an injury. Most injuries are often down to over exuberance, or negligence of the student. But if the cause of the injury is down to someone else; such as the university, or the landlords of the accommodation, then he/she may be able to raise a claim for compensation and AAH, the personal injury lawyer in Lancaster students often rely on, can help.
The type of injuries we help students to claim for
Accident Advice Helpline has been helping students to claim compensation for injuries they’ve suffered through no fault of their own for nearly 14 years. The types of incidents we’ve handled include:
- Slips, trips and falls
- Injuries due to defective equipment
- Falls from height
- RTA injuries including whiplash
- Sports injuries
- Illnesses contracted on campus, such as Legionnaires disease, or meningitis
Most injuries are caused by accidents which are always difficult to predict. But with illnesses like legionnaires and meningitis, parents need to ensure their young ones are aware of the dangers, and symptoms. Early diagnosis, can save lives, especially with something like meningitis.
Injury claim checklist
To establish if the injury is one that you can claim compensation for, run through this brief checklist.
- Is the blame for the injury attributable to a 3rd party?
- Is the injury serious enough to warrant a claim?
- Do you have medical evidence regarding the nature of the injury?
- Did the injury happen within the past 3 years
If the answer to all 4 questions is yes, then you have good grounds for raising a personal injury claim.
