Arm injuries can be problematic as they can prevent you from doing many things you would normally take completely for granted. If you injure your dominant arm you could find life becomes very difficult until your injury heals.
The vast majority of pupils have no problems at school and never incur any injuries at all. However there are isolated cases where someone has suffered an arm injury. When this occurs it is understandable to want to know how it happened. After all, if someone else was negligent in some way, it could mean there is a possibility to claim school arm injury compensation.
Are you the parent?
If you are the parent of a school-age child who has suffered injuries to their arm that you believe were the fault of someone else, you have a right to act on behalf of your child to seek compensation.
School arm injury compensation amounts will depend on the exact nature and severity of the injury. If negligence can be proven the compensation will be determined according to a wide variety of factors.
For example, an injury that never fully heals will usually incur a greater payout than an injury that does heal given time. Payouts can also depend on the area of the arm that is hurt, and the severity of that injury.
