    Personal injury lawyer in Lutterworth

    A personal injury lawyer in Lutterworth and the duty of care of educational facilities

    The education system has a legal duty to protect people who are at schools, universities and colleges, and not just the students as other people are included, such as admin staff, cleaners, cooks and visitors.

    If anyone is injured in an accident through no fault of their own, the education facility may have to contact their insurers when they receive a personal injury claim from the personal injury lawyer in Lutterworth at Accident Advice Helpline. 

    Accidents that can happen at schools etc. that may need the help of a personal injury lawyer in Lutterworth

    Many types of accidents can happen when our children attend school, college or university, and just a few of them are:

    • Sporting and athletic injuries, not the normal ones you get in play, but ones caused by intentional or reckless behaviour
    • Being hit by a vehicle in the car parks
    • Assault or bullying that cause trauma
    • Sexual harassment or abuse
    • A slip, trip or fall because of wet floors without warning signs, stairs with no handrail or perhaps the hole the gardener has dug and not clearly signed could have a student falling down it.
    • Electric shocks from exposed wires, or trailing wires causing someone to trip over them
    • Injuries from faulty equipment such as desks and chairs or faulty electrical equipment that gives a shock to someone
    • Food poisoning perhaps contracted in the canteen
    • Exposure to asbestos causing asbestos related diseases; this still happens in old buildings if it is not treated and removed correctly
    • Heavy lifting without proper training

    If any of these happen to you, or one of your children, and injuries are the result, whether physical or psychological, a personal injury claim using the personal injury lawyer in Lutterworth should be made, by the parents if the child is under 18.

    The Duty of care needed

    The schools, colleges and universities have a responsibility to their students to protect their health and safety while on their premises, whether that is in the buildings or the grounds.  They have to ensure that the facility is safe and that if a risk is found, it is dealt with immediately.
