    Compensation for a road accident outside school


    Every weekday thousands of children across the UK head to and from school, whether it is a primary or secondary school. Some are accompanied by parents while others are old enough to make the journey on their own. However the journeys are completed, there is a clear need for safety to be foremost in the minds of everyone involved.

    Unfortunately there are cases where people have been involved in a road accident outside school. There are many potential dangers that can crop up at this time, particularly because traffic tends to be heavy and there will be many children and adults walking and cycling to and from school as well.

    Clearly there is a need for everyone to be more attentive at these times of day, to ensure everyone makes the journey safely and without incident. Unfortunately this is not always the case. There is the potential for accidents to occur because of the heightened level of traffic and the potential for people to take less care than they should in these situations. On some occasions people have been injured through no fault of their own as someone else has been negligent in their behaviour or attention towards others.

    What types of accidents might potentially take place?

    Sometimes a lack of attention may be responsible for an accident occurring. For example, a driver should always check their speed and be on the lookout for children around schools. If someone goes over the speed limit or does not stop if they see a lollipop lady or man attempting to stop the traffic, an accident could potentially happen. Furthermore if a child runs into the road without looking this could also potentially increase the chances of an accident. Since no one wants anyone to be injured it makes sense to be more alert at all times.
