As a parent you know that quality education is the key to success for the future of your child. When your child is in school, you leave them in the capable hands of the teaching and non teaching staff who are also parents (well, some of them) and trust that they keep them safe throughout the day.
This trust can be broken should they fail in their duty or are wary of the hazard/s but do not take the necessary correctional actions and the end result is your child getting injured through no fault of their own. Most parents are overwhelmed and don’t know whom to point the finger of blame at. Accident Advice Helpline can reduce that anxiety by giving sound advice on personal injury claims in Charnwood.
With Charnwood having one of the largest school population in Leicestershire, they are charged with the responsibility to ensure that you child is protected from hazards while learning. Should they fail to maintain safety standards and this leads to your child suffering an injury, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim on behalf of your child. You will make a claim on behalf of your child as a ‘litigation friend’.
Negligence of schools
The teaching and non teaching staff may fail to act on tell tale signs of a disaster waiting to happen and that could have been prevented. Here are some examples:
- Organisation failure of work activity (e.g. inadequate supervision during on field trip, laboratory classes)
- Improper use of equipment and substances(e.g. lifts, machinery, experiments, lab apparatus)
- Conditions of the premises (e.g. poorly maintained pavements and slippery floors)
- Conditions of furnishing, desk and chairs
