Most people have a fall every now and then. It can be easy to do, especially if you aren’t looking where you are going. However in some instances the person who is injured was not the person to blame for what happened. For example if you are in a classroom you could end up being hurt because of negligence.
Negligence means someone else has failed to do something that was required of them, or has done something negligent that has resulted in the accident taking place. For instance, in a classroom there will probably be storage cupboards, perhaps on the walls, and maybe a projector screen as well. If these are not properly secured to the walls, they could end up falling on top of someone. This in turn could lead to that person falling to the floor.
How likely might it be that someone could be injured in a fall in a classroom?
This is very unlikely. However if there is a hazard on the floor somewhere, someone could fall over it and fall to the floor. Any fall could mean that person might sustain an injury or two, and depending on its severity this might mean they are incapable of doing certain things for a time.
Classroom fall compensation can be paid out in cases where someone has been hurt in a fall. While it is important to see whether any medical assistance is needed initially, it is also important to get the incident recorded in the accident book.
