Nurseries provide a vital service for working parents. They provide day-care for children from a few weeks of age up until the age of five years when they go to school. Nurseries in Winchester are usually open from around 8 in the morning to around 6 in the evening. Some may open earlier or later to accommodate the needs of parents.
Choosing child care is a big deal for parents! They can spend months agonising over the best childcare option for their offspring. Some choose private or shared nannies whilst others choose a registered childminder. For many, nursery is the child care of choice.
Most nurseries have very high standards of safety, hygiene and emotional care. It is very rare for an accident to occur, and be located in a nursery, but it can happen. The accident would be classed as a no win no fee* accident if the child was injured in a nursery through no fault of their own. This is the sort of accident where a personal injury claim may be started after calling us here at Accident Advice Helpline. We can help you with a nursery or school accident in Winchester.
Step by step guide to making a nursery or school accident in Winchester claim
- Obviously the health of your child is the first priority after an accident in Winchester. Diagnosing an injury in a very young child is not easy because they cannot describe how they are feeling so it may take some time. Tests such as X-rays and scans may be needed to confirm a diagnosis.
- Try to collect some information about how the accident happened. Some accidents are caused by poorly maintained or slippery surfaces whilst others can arise from defective equipment. Staffing is a major issue in many nursery accidents. There are strict staffing criteria in nurseries to ensure that children are supervised correctly and if these have not been adhered to then there may be grounds to make a claim.
