    Claiming compensation for a school traffic accident


    Despite many schools and local councils taking extra safety precautions and limiting stopping outside school premises, school traffic accidents can still occur. Speeding, pulling out without looking or parking on zig-zag lines could all lead to an accident occurring, and if your child has been injured, you’ll know what a stressful experience this can be.

    If your child is struck by a car outside their school whilst crossing the road, or involved in another type of school traffic accident, the good news is that you can claim compensation. Here are just a few of the injuries that may be sustained by children involved in accidents of this kind:

    • Head injuries including concussion
    • Cuts and bruises
    • Broken bones
    • Internal bleeding

    The consequences of accidents of this type can often be very serious and fatalities do occur. If you have concerns about road safety outside your child’s school, it is a good idea to report your concerns to the local council. You may also wish to consider claiming compensation for a school traffic accident.

    Claiming compensation for road traffic accidents

    If you are considering claiming compensation for a school traffic accident, it helps to have taken photographs of your child’s injuries at the time of the accident. But don’t worry if you don’t have this information – your personal injury lawyer will be able to speak to doctors and medical staff who treated your child, to assess the extent of their injuries. It’s important to act quickly if you’re to claim compensation, as there’s usually a three year time limit in place. If your child has been injured by a negligent driver, you may have needed time off work to care for them, or have faced expensive medical bills.
