Are you making West Somerset personal injury claims on behalf of a child or young person?
With many children going back to school or nursery in the autumn, West Somerset personal injury claims made on behalf of children and young people may begin to rise. When children attend primary or secondary school, the staff are responsible for their wellbeing, as well as their education. In order to ensure their safety, it’s essential that they are properly supervised and that they are given a safe space to work and play in.
Of course, the needs of younger children will differ greatly to those of older children or teenagers. Whilst children in secondary school may not need to be supervised at all times, those primary school or nursery should obviously have a teacher or responsible adult with them at all times. Similarly, in secondary schools, one teacher may be able to cope with the needs of thirty children in a classroom at one time. However, when dealing with young children, the ratio should be nearer three children to one teacher or adult.
In order to ensure that everyone at school or nursery is safe, the buildings themselves should be subject to regular maintenance work. If they aren’t, and an accident does occur, they could face multiple West Somerset personal injury claims.
When a young person or child suffers an injury, their family don’t normally focus on making West Somerset personal injury claims. Of course, they simply want to ensure their child returns to full health as soon as possible.
However, once your child has begun to recover, you may want to ensure that those responsible for his or her injuries are held accountable. By making West Somerset personal injury claims you could help to prove who or what caused your child’s injuries and you can also obtain compensation on your child’s behalf.
Although many people assume that making West Somerset personal injury claims on behalf of a young person is very difficult, it doesn’t have to be. Whilst they will need an adult to make the West Somerset personal injury claims, the compensation awarded will simply be put into a trust for them.
