    Is it possible to claim compensation for bullying at school?

    There are occasions when we may receive injuries despite having done nothing wrong. For example, you may be involved in an accident whereby someone else wasn’t paying attention, perhaps driving into you or knocking you down. If negligence is the reason why you were hurt, there is a chance you could claim something in compensation. But what about compensation for bullying at school?

    Bullying can change lives, and not for the better. Many people are left traumatised and it can affect them long into the future, even coming back to haunt them when they are adults. Letting bullies get away with their actions is never good, as it lets them go on to hurt others as well.

    Could you claim compensation for bullying at school?

    A school has a duty of care to keep both its pupils and its teachers and other staff safe from harm. This means adhering to health and safety rules and making sure the premises do not pose any danger to those who are using them.

    If your child has been hurt while at school, you’ll naturally want to know what happened, why it happened, and how it happened. If they received injuries because they were bullied, the school has a duty of care to do something about it. No one would want to take a case like this to court, but if your child is unfortunate enough to have been bullied, you’ll want to do everything you can to prevent it from happening again.

    What should you do?

    The best course of action is to make sure the school is aware of what happened. You should also seek medical attention for your child, to ensure their injuries are on record, and they are treated if need be. The nature of any treatment given will depend on how serious the injuries are.
