    How to claim school trip injury compensation


    Most schools provide school trips from time to time. The children will usually be taken by bus or coach to a destination either close to the school for a day out, or further afield. This could be a museum, a historical site or a local attraction. There could also be longer trips for a week or so, perhaps to somewhere abroad.

    School trips are designed to provide a learning experience for the pupils. Getting out of the classroom and being able to learn in a different way and a different location can be very appealing.

    Very few school trips end with one or more pupils – or indeed teachers – being injured in any way. However there are occasions when things may go wrong.

    Examples of school trips where accidents or injuries might occur

    There could be an accident involving the bus or coach being used to transport the children and staff to their destination, or indeed back to the school at the end of the trip. If a road accident occurs several people on board could be hurt as a result.

    Children may also potentially get into difficult situations that cause them to be injured if they are hurt when separated from the main group. There should always be ample numbers of teachers for the number of pupils who are on the trip. There should be no risk of any child becoming lost or separated from everyone else, as this may cause them to get into trouble and be hurt.

    The prospect of getting school trip injury compensation

    Perhaps you are a teacher who was injured while on a school trip. You may be reading this as the parent of a child who was injured on a trip. Either way, getting expert advice regarding your situation is a definite must.

    This is the only way you can be sure of whether or not you can get school trip injury compensation. Even if your injury happened a couple of years ago you might still have a chance of getting compensation, since there is a three-year window to claim in if you are of adult age.
