Do you need to contact West Lothian accident claim solicitors because of an injury at school or college?
When young people are at school or college, the teachers and management team are responsible for their welfare. In order to ensure the safety of pupils, most schools and educational institutions have clear guidelines regarding acceptable conduct and disciplinary procedures.
Whilst students are expected to conduct themselves in a safe and appropriate manner, the school are also expected to provide a safe learning environment. If they fail to do so, and if someone is hurt, the school can face serious questions and potentially, an investigation.
In addition to this, the student’s family may wish to make a compensation claim with West Lothian accident claim solicitors. When a young person suffers an injury at school, they are often eligible to make a compensation claim with West Lothian accident claim solicitors but they may need assistance to do so. If they are under eighteen, a parent or guardian may need to make the claim or contact West Lothian accident claim solicitors on their behalf.
However, this doesn’t mean that the compensation will be awarded direly to the parent or guardian. It’s more likely, that the student would be awarded the compensation and it would be placed in a trust until they are old enough to access the funds.
