Children can and do try to do things that might result in them being injured. This is precisely why most responsible parents always keep a close eye on kids of a certain age. When not looking their children themselves, parents entrust this task to others, be they childcare workers or teachers.
When a parent does so, they can have every right to expect that whomever they have handed their kids over to will take the same care in looking out for their well being as they would.
If your child were to be injured as a result of the people who were looking after him or her failing in their duty of care, there will be a chance that you might be able to get yourself a top 100% ‘no win, no fee’ personal injury lawyer who might be able to win you a Tyne and Wear accident at work compensation pay-out.
Nursery and school injuries and Tyne and Wear accident at work compensation
Imagine that you had just put your youngest child into nursery for a few mornings a week, partly due to the fact that you need to get back to work and partly because you feel as though your child would benefit from socialising with other children for a few hours a week. It never crosses your mind that this might result in your child being injured in an accident that was to his or her fault, putting you in a position where taking 100% ‘no win, no fee’ Tyne and Wear accident at work compensation action might be on the cards.
One day, a few hours after you’ve dropped your child off, you get a phone call telling you that your child has been hurt in an accident. It turns out that one of the childcare workers that was supposed to be looking after your son or daughter left a security fence open. This led to your child pushing it open and falling down a few steps.
Under these circumstances, as the accident clearly occurred as a result of the negligent behaviour of the care worker who left the barrier open, there might well be a chance that you could be able to claim a Tyne and Wear accident at work compensation pay-out on behalf of your child.
