    Find out how to claim compensation for an accident at school

    There are many reasons why someone might have an accident at school. Slips, trips and falls regularly occur due to things like badly-maintained surfaces on school premises, whilst defective equipment is also common cause of school-related injuries. Unsafe buildings in dire need of renovation and investment can cause accidents, as can broken paving slabs and poorly-maintained playgrounds.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we know how expensive accidents can be, so we always aim for the maximum amount of compensation. If your child has had an accident, it could have left you seriously out of pocket. For instance, you may have been forced to take off work, and you may have even forked out for private tuition to stop them being left behind whilst recovering.

    We can also help you pay for things like medical expenses and fares to the hospital. Just make sure you keep the receipts for everything so we can claim the money back for you. Please don’t throw away any evidence related to the case, including witness contact details, photographs, medical reports, receipts or anything else.
