Compensation for an accident while teaching

Being a teacher can be a very rewarding experience and usually involves the education of students in a relatively safe and secure classroom environment. Like many office jobs, the chances are that if you are working in a classroom you won’t even be thinking about the potential risks that you could face but this ignorance can present a whole host of potential problems.

The classroom does have the potential to bring about a whole host of issues and if the correct safety precautions aren’t taken then you could find that you are the victim of accidents within a classroom environment. If these are caused by the negligence of your employer then you could consider making a claim for compensation. 

What type of accidents can happen while teaching?

There are a number of potential problems which can occur in the classroom environment if you are the victim of negligence and some common examples of this include:

  • Injuries caused by the use of faulty equipment
  • Injuries caused by electrical problems and faults
  • Injuries caused by students
  • Injuries caused by buildings issues
  • Injuries caused by inadequate training.
  • What injuries might I sustain as a result of this type of injury?

As a teacher you could sustain a number of different injuries and unfortunately even though these occur within the classroom environment, they do still have the potential to be serious if they aren’t treated appropriately. Head and neck injuries can be sustained from trips and falls, in addition you could sustain scars and burns if you are the victim of an electrical shock or an accident with faulty equipment.
