Accident at School Compensation

Going to school is an essential part of growing up for any child and as it's an area where we have to go in a compulsory manner, it's crucial that it's an area that any child makes the most out of. Although in general, schools are areas where we send our children and expect them to be safe, unfortunately that is not always the case and in some situations a trip to school can leave your child with serious, long-term injuries as the result of the negligence of another person.

A school by law is responsible for looking after your child and there are highly trained professionals in place to ensure that this is done in an effective manner. If your child sustains an injury in the schoolyard through the direct negligence of another child, or of a teacher, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim. 

Who could be responsible for an Accident at School?

If your child is involved in this type of accident there are usually two main parties that you could consider making a claim against. The first is a teacher or guardian who has been responsible for watching over your child and has failed to do this in an effective manner. The second is another child in the schoolyard who could have physically injured your child or whose negligence in turn has led to injuries being developed by your child. 

What types of accidents could I consider making a claim for?

In this situation there are a number of different types of compensation claim that you could make, these include:

  • Accidents which happen in the playground
  • Accidents which happen in the classroom
  • Accidents caused by a negligent teacher or guardian
  • Physical abuse from another child
  • Accidents caused by poor maintenance of school facilities.
