When you send your child off to school you expect them to have an enjoyable day and come home safe at the end of it. If your child has been injured in an accident at school, it’s normal to be angry and wonder what has gone wrong. Accidents in schools can happen at any school, at any time, and if your child has been injured, Accident Advice Helpline could help you get the compensation you deserve, on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
How did your child’s accident happen?
If your child has been injured, you’ll probably find yourself questioning why their accident happened. Accidents at schools can happen for a variety of different reasons, and it’s generally due to either poor supervision, staff negligence or faulty equipment. For example, if your child has fallen off a climbing frame in the playground and suffered a head injury, it could have been caused by lack of supervision by staff, or a faulty climbing frame which broke as they were using it.
The majority of accidents can be avoided by implementing health and safety procedures and ensuring that equipment is safe to use and staff have the training they need to carry out their jobs safely. If you feel that your child’s school could have taken steps to prevent their accident from happening, then you may have a viable personal injury claim. Even if your child has suffered minor injuries, they may still need to take time off school to recover, which can affect their learning as well as their confidence – and you may suffer loss of earnings due to taking time off to care for them.
