What injuries can I claim for?
Being a primary school teacher is a varied role. Every day brings new challenges and tasks. This means that it would be impossible to predict all the injuries you could suffer. They might include broken bones from a fall during a PE lesson, lacerations sustained from a tool during a technology class or a burn from a cookery session. Whatever your injury, you can make a claim if it was caused by the negligence of others.
Your employer has a duty to make sure you can carry out your work in a safe environment. They should provide the necessary training, support and equipment that you need to effectively work as a primary school teacher. If they fail to do this they can be considered negligent, and you may be entitled to compensation.
What to do
If you have suffered a primary school teacher injury, you must consult a doctor. If you need to make a personal injury claim, the medical records of your injury will be vital evidence. Record all the details you can about the accident and how it has affected you.
Details that your solicitor will need to know include what you were doing, what equipment you were using and if anyone else was involved. If anyone witnessed your accident, note down their names and contact details in case your solicitor needs to get in touch with them.
Keep records and receipts of all the costs associated with your accident including treatment and therapy, transport to medical appointments and unpaid time off work. These will form the basis of your compensation package.
How to claim
You must start the claims process within three years of your primary school teacher injury. Call Accident Advice Helpline’s free 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500 or dial 0333 500 0992 from your mobile.
Our friendly, trained advisers will listen sympathetically to all the details of your accident and will be able to give you advice on how to proceed.
If you do decide to make a personal injury claim, your details will be passed to one of our expert solicitors. Your claim will be in safe hands so that you can concentrate on your recovery and getting back to the job that you love.
