No win no fee in Bilbrough Streeton
Much like a private landlord, local authority or housing association, your university will have a responsibility to make sure you’re not put at risk when staying in its property. A provider of higher education will need to make sure that your health and safety is not in any way threatened if you lodge in its halls or residence, or any other accommodation it supplies to its students.
If a university fails in this duty to you, there will be chance that you might be able to retain the services of a top-class 100% no win no fee Bilbrough Streeton solicitor to sue it for compensation. The amount that you might end up winning would be very much dependent on the severity of the injuries you suffered and whether or not you lost any income or had to meet any additional expenses as a result of being hurt.
A court might also consider if you had to delay your studies by skipping a year if you were unable to return to university in the aftermath of the incident that you wound up getting hurt in.
