Personal injury lawyer in Lymington and the accidents that can happen at school
If you have children that are at school, sometimes accidents can happen, as kids get bumped and knocked all the time. But sometimes the accidents can be worse than that. If they have an accident and it requires medical treatment, and this accident was not the fault of your child, you are within your rights to use a personal injury lawyer in Lymington to make an injury claim on behalf of your child, against the school.
Using a personal injury lawyer in Lymington for your child
Once your child is on school property, any number of things can go wrong, such as:
- They could have contracted food poisoning
- They could be assaulted or attacked
- They could be run over by a car in the car park
- They could be hurt on damaged furniture
- They could fall down wet stairs that have no warning signs, or the stairs could have a broken or missing handrail
- In older buildings, they could be exposed to asbestos
- They could be injured while in the gym because of a lack of teacher supervision
Here are just some examples of what accidents could occur while your child is at school, and if they are injured in one of these or any other accident at school, you should use a personal injury lawyer in Lymington to make a claim on their behalf.
A claim against the school
Victims, or their parents, sometimes have a problem making a claim against a school because they feel guilty that school funds will be used to pay damages – no need for this, the school will be insured for such incidents, a premium they have to pay whether or not any claims are made against them. So if an accident happens because your child has been hurt, use a personal injury lawyer in Lymington to make an injury claim.
