    How to claim school teacher injury compensation


    Some careers certainly have more risk of injury than others, but you wouldn’t put teaching into that category. With that said though, there is still the potential for teaching injuries to happen every now and then. They’re rare, certainly, but there have been occasions when teachers and their assistants have ended up suffering an injury of some kind.

    There are all kinds of examples we could give where injuries might potentially be a possibility. For instance there are many occasions where children may do work that will need to be put on display.

    If you are asked to hang it up you could experience a fall in the process. In any instance where working at height is required, this should be assessed for risk in advance of the procedure taking place. You should also receive appropriate training to minimise the odds of an accident occurring.

    What else might lead to school teacher injury compensation?

    Teachers will have to mark homework and do computer work from time to time as well, as they prepare lesson plans. When this happens there is a possibility they could suffer hand and wrist injuries from the repetitive work that is involved in these cases.

    Think of repetitive strain injury (RSI) and tendonitis for example. Both these conditions, and several other similar ones, can feel very painful and prevent the sufferer from doing all manner of other things as well.

    Accidents can happen outside the school building as well. For instance you might slip on ice or snow that has not been cleared in the winter. You may walk across a school field and catch your foot in a pothole you never knew was there and wasn’t marked in any way. If this happened it may become clear someone else was at fault, and that could entitle you to claim school teacher injury compensation.
