    Compensation for injuries caused by building work at school


    You send your kids off to school in the morning and you expect them to come home safe at the end of the day. Likewise, if you work as a teacher at a primary or secondary school, you expect to be safe at work – we like to think it’s a given. But did you ever think that the building work going on at your child’s school could be dangerous? Injuries caused by building work at school are unfortunately not uncommon, and if you or your child have been injured, the good news is that we can help you claim personal injury compensation. Just call us for confidential, no-obligation advice from our expert personal injury advisors – with years of industry experience, we’re a firm you can trust.

    Injuries caused by building work at school could range from minor to severe. You could be crushed or struck by falling debris, become ill after inhaling toxic dust (such as asbestos) or slip or trip on tools or other equipment left lying around. If you have been seriously hurt, or if your child has been seriously injured, you may receive a substantial settlement if you claim personal injury compensation, which takes into account not only your pain and suffering, but also any expenses incurred such as the cost of medical treatment.

    Building site dangers

    Building sites can be dangerous places, and hopefully management at the school (and the building company) have carried out a risk assessment to ensure that the risk to children and staff is minimised whilst work is being carried out. If there is a substantial risk to members of the public, the areas where building work is being carried out should be closed off to staff and pupils. So if your child has been injured and you feel that more could have been done to prevent their accident from occurring, it’s time to take action. There’s a three-year time limit in place to make a personal injury claim, so get in touch with us and find out whether you have a viable claim. It’s free to call and you could even find out how much compensation you could be entitled to by taking the 30-second test on our website, right now.

    Make the next move

    You or your child deserve to be compensated for your injuries, so don’t sit around waiting to see what happens next – make a move and claim compensation against those who have been negligent. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and find out today whether you’re eligible to make a claim – we’re here to support you and offer advice throughout the claims process, so you’re not alone.
