According to all available data from labour unions and workers in the education sector, more than 32% of injuries and fatal cases happen to children at school. These are only a few reported cases, as after all the school management wouldn’t like matters to extend into the public domain, in this respect.
You are entitled to receive free advice on personal injury claims in Lancaster in case your child or children suffered an injury at school, which often happen during physical education classes. They can get injured during cross-country runs, track and field athletics, doing exercises on a crossbeam, during a handball or football game, during rhythmic gymnastics classes,or maybe while boxing. There are many potential hazards in the PE and games departments of all schools..
Teachers in many accidents fail to monitor a child’s physical condition and their response to various exercises. A fifteen or sixteen year-old teenager can already be having hypertension, and vigorous exercise and poor monitoring may make their situation worse. When your child is forced to run a cross-country race of 3000m, any athlete will tell you that it is a very heavy load for a minor.
Any physical activity can lead from slight injuries like cuts and lacerations to very serious ones like spinal cord injuries, heart attacks and even strokes in school students. In case your child have suffered an injury due to negligence on the part of the school, our personal injury solicitors are more than ready to help you make a personal injury claim against the them.
To avoid unpleasant consequences, it is necessary to carry out to a thorough diagnosis of pupils injured and also in case of an accident, school doctors and nurses should have proper training to handle emergencies.
Once your child is injured and you claim compensation on their behalf, it means that their suffering is recognised and immediate expenses can be recovered. But it also means that the school will be more aware in the future, which will hopefully help prevent another child being injured in the same way as yours.
