    How to claim school canteen injury compensation


    School canteens are busy places, and if you have been injured whilst working in a canteen, or whilst visiting it to get your lunch, you might find you’re entitled to make a claim for school canteen injury compensation. There’s so much going on that it’s easy for accidents to happen, but that doesn’t mean that management don’t have a responsibility to ensure the school canteen is a safe place to be.

    Whether you’ve been injured after slipping on a wet floor or have sustained injuries whilst working in a canteen, you could make a claim for school canteen injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. Our lawyers specialise in personal injury law and have years of experience, so you can rely on us to get you the compensation you’re entitled to.

    How did your accident happen?

    When you make a claim for school canteen injury compensation, this is the first thing we’ll ask you. What happened to cause your accident? If you’ve been injured whilst working in a school canteen, it might be that you slipped on spilled food or drink on the floor and broke your ankle, or were injured by a faulty kitchen appliance such as a blender or kettle. Or maybe you’ve been burned or scalded when another member of staff spilt hot food or drink on you.

    Of course, members of staff or pupils could also be injured in the school canteen, with slip, trip and fall injuries amongst the most common to be reported. If you slip on a wet or dirty floor after food has been spilled, you could suffer strains, sprains, broken bones or even a head or facial injury, if you hit your head as you fall. Or it might be that you work as a teacher and have been struck down by food poisoning after eating in the school canteen – or your child has come home from school and suffered food poisoning. The school could be held liable for any injuries sustained and made to pay you personal injury compensation for your pain and suffering.
