If your child is unfortunate enough to be injured in an accident that was not her fault while away on a school trip, be it just for the day or longer, it will be likely that you’ll be showered with profuse apologies if the incident that led to your child being injured came about as a result of the school or its staff’s negligence or irresponsible behaviour.
It will be probable that the teaching staff will be genuinely concerned about the welfare of your child, but this might not be the only reason they will be so keen to offer their sympathy and support. Regardless of how many consent forms you signed prior to your child going on a school trip, if she gets injured in an accident that came about as a result of the negligent or irresponsible behaviour of those who were charged with looking after her welfare, there will be a chance that you might be able to launch a personal injury case against the school on behalf of your child, with the assistance of a decent personal injury lawyer.
Claiming for your child
If you do not make a claim within three years of the accident your child is injured in, they have up until three years from their 18th birthday to get a claim started. But this is not always a good choice. Just think if your child was perhaps only 6 at the time of the accident, that could be 15 years before a claim is made. It is much better to make the claim for your child sooner rather than later, while the evidence is fresh in everyones mind.
