Types of School Accidents

Types of School Accidents

It is quite unfortunate that accidents in colleges, schools and even nurseries are a commonplace. At schoolaccidentclaims.co.uk, our solicitors are often approached by parents whose children have suffered injuries in schools. It is also unfortunate to see that apart from children, teachers, delivery drivers and even school visitors become victims of accidents in the school premises.

If you, your child or a loved one has suffered injuries in an accident at school, may you be eligible to make a school accident claim for compensation.

Our highly experienced team of school accident claim solicitors has handled many different types of school accidents. Some of the most common types of school accidents include:

Slips and trips – these kinds of accidents can be caused due to slippery floor or holes in the ground. If your child slipped or tripped as a result of any of these, the school will be held liable for the damages caused.

Playground equipment – equipments installed in the playground of the school must be suitable for the age of children that will be using them. For example, if there is a climbing frame installed in the ground, it is likely that a child can fall off the frame and suffer a broken arm. The school can also argue that it was an avoidable danger because every child who plays on it must know how to use it properly. But, the same situation can give rise to a school accident claim if the climbing frame was too high or if it did not have a smooth surface underneath it to protect a child in case of a fall.

Playing field accidents – accidents can also take place in playing fields if the fields are not maintained properly. It is the responsibility of the school to ensure that playing fields are safe and free from danger.

Food poisoning – eating food in the school cafeteria can result in food poisoning due to poor hygiene in the cafeteria.

Defective equipment – chairs, desks and tables used in classrooms must be kept in good condition. If these equipments are defective, it is likely to cause accidents and injuries.
