Although rigorous health and safety measures are in place in many schools and colleges, it is possible for students to suffer accidents, such as slips, trips and falls. If your child has been injured at school, or you are a student and you’ve been involved in an accident during workshop classes, you may be able to claim compensation.
Claiming compensation for accidents in workshop classes?
If you’ve been injured at school or university workshop classes and you weren’t to blame for your injuries, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation. Compensation is awarded in cases where somebody sustains injury through no fault of their own.
If you’ve fallen at university as a result of broken paving stones or you’ve had a slip or trip on a wet floor, which wasn’t marked with a warning sign, the university should admit liability for your injuries.
If you’ve been involved in workshop classes and the relevant health and safety measures were not enforced and this resulted in an accident, contact Accident Advice Helpline.
