Hi, I want to sue my daughter's nursery where do i start? She had an accident
Assistant: Where are you? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: UK England
Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: Complained to the nursery and ofsted but they terminated my contract with immediate effect as a resolution to my complaint
Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not for now

Hello, thank you for the question.

Did your Daughter suffer injuries and did you take her to the doctor?

You can sue the nursery by sending them a letter before action outlining the allegations of negligence. If you want to claim for injuries, you can act on your Daughter's behalf as her litigation friend - an independent medical report would be needed so as to value the claim.

Can you confirm the injuries and any financial losses on your part?

Hi, thanks for the response. I havent outlined the negligence as such but made a complaint already they obviously dont agree and terminated my contract with immediate effect.
I did take her to the doctor and have pictures dont have a doctor's report as such.

Where can I actually find someone to represent me?

Hi there, this is a legal advice forum so cannot take on a case but can guide you or give a recommendation for a law firm who might be able to help.

You could try Slater & Gordon (tel: 0161(###) ###-#### who do a lot of good quality personal injury work.

You could do it yourself with a letter of claim and enclose the photos - the insurer for the nursery may well settle without you going to a law firm.

Let me know if you would like further help. If you could accept the answer and give a star rating, I can offer unlimited follow up Q&A's at no extra charge

Yes, you can include breach of contract in the letter of claim too

Let me know if you'd like a hand with the letter.

Grateful if you could accept the answer (Just Answer will then credit me)

How do i know what other claims i can make?
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
also taking the matter to the media (bbc, newspapers,etc) - would i need a solicitor for that?

Hi there, you can allege breach of contract in failing to ensure a duty of care to your daughter, and that they have been negligent which led to the injury

You do not need to instruct a lawyer to go to the press about it - you would just need to contact the press and see if they take up the story
