Accidents at School
Kids will be kids and as a parent you are often used to normal childhood accidents that no one is to blame for. However, sometimes childhood accidents arise due to a lack of safety measures. The injuries resulting from these can be particularly distressing given they could have been avoided, and have happened in a setting where you have trusted others to take care of your child for example at school or nursery.
Accidents involving negligence can happen in a variety of ways including: trips on uneven or poorly maintained surfaces; accidents in PE; school trips; Road Traffic Accidents on the way to sports fixtures and school excursions; playground accidents; defective or poorly maintained equipment; accidents arising in science laboratories and workshops; and accidents through poor supervision.
As a parent or carer you want to alleviate suffering in your child and get them the treatment and rehabilitation they need. We understand that this can be a difficult and distressing time having to take time off work and adding additional strain to family life. Claims involving children, particularly serious ones, can take considerable time. We ensure your needs are put first and we fight for you to get your child the compensation they deserve. We undertake claims on a No Win No Fee basis ensuring you aren’t prohibited from making a claim through lack of funds.
Contact Us to discuss your child’s accident and for free advice on whether you can make a compensation claim or if you require more information about accidents at school.

Independent reviews from our CLIENTS
I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
I contacted Attwood Solicitors requesting that they represent me. Their response to date has been way beyond my expectations . They have provided a comprehensive and professional service at every stage, with a dedicated member of staff as my contact.

Once again we would like to convey our sincere thanks to you and would have no reservations recommending you to anyone else – you have been a star
