Get medical attention
If you or your child was injured at secondary school, you are able to claim if the accident occurred during the last three years and a third party was at fault in some way. Medical staff must also have assessed you or your child at the time of the accident. Common school claims relate to trips or falls on school grounds, injuries caused by defective equipment, sports-related injuries and food poisoning. If you believe the accident could have been prevented, then the school may be liable and you could receive up to a six-figure sum depending on the circumstances.
If you have been assaulted or attacked by a pupil or teacher then the rules regarding compensation are more stringent, so we recommend that you get in touch with us to see whether we can make a claim on your behalf. You can make a claim if you have slipped on a footpath that has not been maintained properly, for example. You could also claim if you were sitting on a structure or chair and it fell or broke beneath you – leading to cuts, bruises or broken bones.
Report the incident
You will need to prove that a third party was responsible for your injuries, so we recommend that you report the accident to a person of authority such as a head teacher or other member of staff after the accident. The school is required to note down accidents in an ‘accident book’ by law, so make sure any important details are written here. You may also want to take photographs of defective equipment to support your case.
Whatever your secondary school accident claim may be, Accident Advice Helpline will have a solution. There are no upfront fees so you do not even have to worry about funding it. A claim will help you and your family to recover from the accident and cover any costs associated with it.
