My Child Was Injured On a School Trip
If your child has been injured on a school trip you may be wondering if you can make a personal injury claim. If your child has been injured due to the negligence of someone else you could make a claim.
Most people think you only have a short period of time to make an accident claim, but for an accident involving children, the child has until their 21st birthday to make a claim for compensation.

HOW TO MAKE A SUCCESSFUL CLAIM
Injury claims can begin once there is enough evidence to show that someone else was responsible for an injury caused. It could be broken equipment that has caused a injury; or a slip, trip or fall on a wet floor at a museum, an accident at a farm, or a road traffic accident for example.
Because of the wide variety of possible injuries, it is advisable that you seek the help of one of our personal injury lawyers.
HOW MUCH COMPENSATION CAN I GET FOR A SCHOOL TRIP INJURY?
Every accident and injury is unique and therefore compensation is decided on a case by case basis. The extent of your injuries is the most important factor in determining how much compensation you will be owed.
However, compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. Your injuries will be assessed by doctors who are local to you. Our compensation calculator will give you an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon your injuries. Jefferies Solicitors will take these different details relating to your injury into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded, which will then be put forward to the opposing side and the judge.
