    How to claim school assistant injury compensation


    School teaching assistants take on a variety of different roles within the school. They can help with lessons and work closely with teachers in a number of ways. As such it can be a rewarding role that allows you to help children with their learning activities without actually qualifying as a teacher first.

    You would expect this type of job to offer safe surroundings to work in, and you would be right in the vast majority of cases. However, there are occasions when you might find yourself on the receiving end of injuries that were not your fault. It is this type of situation where people tend to look into the possibility of claiming school assistant injury compensation.

    Could you get any compensation for your injuries?

    It depends on what happened. The most important thing is to have evidence of negligence to back up any claim you might decide to make. A variety of things could potentially happen to lead to this situation. For example you might be hurt while walking across the playground if it was icy or there was a crumbling area that had not been repaired.

    Similarly you might be injured by something falling off the wall while taking part in a class. This type of incident is rare, as are all others suffered in schools, but you could be unlucky if something like this happens.

    Proving negligence was the cause

    Some injuries are easy to identify as the result of negligence on the part of someone else. However, this is not always the case. In every situation you should perhaps consider getting in touch with a professional injury compensation lawyer. They are best-placed to assess whether a claim for school assistant injury compensation would be successful for you. The amount you may win could depend on the injuries and how bad they are, and whether they have a long-lasting effect on you. The parts of the body that are affected will also have an influence on the outcome.
