If you have children of school age, you’ll be well aware that they will often come home with a few bumps and bruises after getting a little carried away in the rough and tumble of play. When this happens, all you’ll be able to do is patch them up and encourage them to curb their enthusiasm when next indulging in similar pastimes.
However, if one of your kids is done an injury while at school that was not his or her fault, you will be well within your rights to look into the possibility of taking some form of 100% no win no fee* personal injury action against the local authority that runs the school in question with the help and assistance of a top St Albans law firm.
School accidents and St Albans law firm action if you child is injured
Some local authorities have to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds a year settling personal injury claims that are brought by parents after children suffered injuries that were not their fault while under the care of the schools they run. Some might say that this is not a particularly good use of public money, but it is only right that kids who are injured in accidents that were not their fault while at school should get some form of financial compensation with the help of a good St Albans law firm.
Imagine that your child was injured while playing a game of tag with his friends. Now this might sound like the sort of accident that happens every day in UK schools, but you would be wise to look into the details of how your son came to be injured in case there was some sort of negligence at play somewhere along the road. If your child lost his footing and fell, that would be one thing, but if he was to fall and land on some broken glass that the school’s maintenance staff had failed to clear up, you could well have grounds from which to launch a personal injury case.
