Have you or your child suffered a personal injury on school property due to the negligence of the school or a member of staff? If you have, you may be eligible to make a school accident compensation claim under personal injury law.
In the UK, accidents in schools, nurseries and even universities are relatively commonplace. In most cases these are genuine accidents caused by rushing, not paying attention or simply bad luck. Fortunately, in these circumstances the people involved often suffer no more than a little embarrassment.
Unfortunately, in some cases accidents at school are caused by negligence on the part of the school or members of staff. These are accidents and injuries that could, and should have been avoided. Examples of school accidents caused by negligence could include the following:
- Slips or trips on school property – this could include a child or visitor slipping on a mopped floor where no warning signs have been displayed. Another example could be tripping due to a raised paving slab on school premises.
- Accidents on school buses – the most likely scenario here is being involved in a road traffic accident while travelling to or from school on the bus. But it could also include accidents on buses caused by poor maintenance, such as damaged seats or flooring.
- Accidents on school playgrounds – these are some of the most common school accident we deal with, and can be caused by faulty playground equipment, insufficient flooring protection or lack of appropriate supervision.
