    How to claim negligent teacher compensation


    Whether you’re working at a school as a teacher, cleaner or janitor or are a pupil, the last thing you expect is to be injured by a member of staff. Schools should be safe places, and health and safety procedures are in place to make sure that both staff and pupils are safe whilst on the premises. When things go wrong, you could find yourself eligible to make a claim for negligent teacher compensation, if a teacher is to blame for your accident. Not sure who’s at fault? Get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline and we’ll be able to offer you advice, in confidence and with no obligation to proceed.

    How do I know if negligence has occurred?

    Imagine your child has been injured on a school trip when he or she should have been supervised by a teacher. Or perhaps one of your children has suffered serious injuries in the school playground when teaching staff should have been keeping an eye on them. Both of these scenarios could leave you eligible to claim negligent teacher compensation. But it might be the case that you yourself are a teacher, and you’ve been injured due to another teacher’s negligence. Stacking heavy objects on a high shelf could cause injuries if the shelf collapses on you.

    Leaving hazards such as rubbish and boxes in a classroom you’re about to use could lead to a tripping accident, whilst rushing along the school corridor and spilling tea could cause scalds or a slip on a wet floor, if the spillage isn’t cleaned up. In all these scenarios, a teacher has been negligent – the result? Somebody could be injured, seriously or otherwise. If you’ve been injured by a negligent teacher, you can find out right now how much compensation you could claim by taking the 30-second test on our website, or call us to find out if you have a viable claim.

    Why should you make a claim?

    If this teacher is allowed to continue with their negligence, how many more people will be injured? Chances are, you’ve needed time off work to look after your injured child – their confidence may have been knocked after their accident and you’ve probably suffered loss of earnings; it doesn’t seem fair. Stack the odds back in your favour and get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 today. It’s free to call and our expert personal injury advisors are on hand to answer any questions you have about making a claim for personal injury compensation for yourself or on behalf of your child.
