When you take part in any activity where you are being taught a skill, the trainer or teacher has a responsibility towards your safety. It doesn’t matter what the setting and the lesson or skill in particular might be, the responsibility remains and in the event of a teacher, tutor or trainer failing in that responsibility, you or another member of the public could be hurt.
As a result, you have the right to make a claim for compensation and Ryedale ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors have the experience and expertise to make that claim on your behalf.
Under the Sea
The right to make a claim for compensation is one that is afforded to you by law. It is the same law that gives your tutor responsibility. In essence, any person or organisation which takes responsibility for teaching or training individuals, either children or adults, takes responsibility for their safety as they do so. This responsibility is known commonly as a duty of care and as part of it, they must ensure that they fully supervise all exercises, ensure the safety of all equipment and carry out full risk assessments before any activity.
Consider if you were to embark upon a scuba diving course, either in a swimming pool or in the open water. The course tutor, leader and the organisation responsible for employing them has a duty of care towards you and all other students to keep you safe as you learn. They should ensure that you have the theoretical knowledge to keep yourself safe as you dive, ensure all equipment is safe and fit for purpose and make sure that you have full supervision as you dive until your proficiency is assured.
Should they fail in any of their responsibilities the risks to your health could be catastrophic. If the worst were to happen and you were to sustain an injury as a result of their failure in their duty of care, you have the right to make a claim for compensation through Ryedale ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors.
