    School accident in St Albans


    As you drop of your little ones at school each day, you leave them in the safe hands of their teachers. That is how it should be, but sometimes accidents happen in schools that are not the fault of the child, and the parents should consider making a claim for compensation. Read on if you want to find out more after a school accident in St Albans.

    Claiming after a school accident in St Albans

    Schools have a legal obligation to ensure the pupils are safe while they are in their care, and if they fail to carry out this duty, they are liable to pay compensation to the injured child.

    The injuries children sustain in accidents at school vary greatly, but for ones so young to have to go through the trauma of an accident that was not their fault is not right, and a St Albans ‘no win, no fee’ accident claim should be made on their behalf.

    Having to cope with serious injuries such as burns, perhaps from the domestic science lessons, or from chemicals in the labs, can have a devastating affect on their whole future life, and can change the personality of the injured child.

    A lack of supervision can often be the cause of accidents in schools, particularly in places like the gym. Just imagine if your child fell 10 -14 feet from a rope, and there were no safety mats on the floor, the consequences could be dire for your child, and the school should not get away with it.

    The trauma of a St Albans no win no fee accident claim for a child

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we do realise how traumatic a claim can be for youngsters, and we endeavour to make sure that everything is settled before it reaches the stage of court. The thought of having to stand up in court can be distressing enough on its own, but knowing they are perhaps going to have to face one of their teachers in court can be even worse for them.

    Over the last 14 years, we have helped many thousands of innocent victims get the compensation they were entitled to after being injured in an accident that was not their own fault, and among them have been numerous claims for accidents in schools.

    If parents are unsure what to do, they should call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone and speak with our friendly advisers. They will chat through the finer details of the accident and your child’s injuries, and the give you all the up to date and relevant information for this type of situation.

    We do not charge for this service, and making the call puts you under no obligation at all to use Accident Advice Helpline. But before you just dismiss the possibility of claiming compensation, you owe it to your child to find out much more about the processes, and why they are entitled to make a personal injury claim. We can help after a school accident in St Albans.
