    Survivor guide: Columbia University


    Like other large educational establishments, Columbia University is frequented by an array of students, teachers and visitors on a daily basis. Busy days at a university mean that occasionally, oversights, bad or even criminal behaviour or mistakes can lead to accidental injuries.

    Common incidents

    Slips, trips and falls are among the most common incidents causing personal injuries, but injuries by defective equipment have also been known to happen in the past.

    Staying safe

    Students, teachers and visitors alike can help to prevent university accidents by:

    • Looking out for and reporting potential slip, trip and fall hazards
    • Checking that equipment about to be used is in good, safe working order
    • Remaining within well-lit areas when navigating the university and campus in the dark
    • Staying clear of known ‘trouble-makers’
    • Reporting bad or potentially criminal behaviour immediately

    Using common sense and considering not only your own health and safety, but also that of others will go a long way towards preventing accidents at Colombia University.

    When bad things happen

    Sometimes, even the greatest care and vigilance cannot prevent Colombia University accidents. Should you sustain a slip, trip or fall injury, an injury by defective equipment or for any other reason due to negligence, you could be entitled to personal injury compensation.
