The school yard is much the same as any other work environment when it comes to the potential for accidents and injuries and even more so than some. Breaking up fighting children, supervising the playground on an icy day, clambering and climbing in order to display new artwork – all these and many more instances make it all too easy to injure yourself at school. If you have suffered an injury in school in the last 3 years that wasn’t your fault, Accident Advice Helpline is here to assist you in getting the compensation you deserve.
Many people don’t go through with work related claims due to concerns over their job security and worries about putting their employer out of pocket, especially a school. However, it is your employer’s responsibility to ensure that you have a safe work environment. If you have suffered an injury in school in the last 3 years, your employer has liability insurance to cover any damages, so you needn’t worry about doing your employer or your school any harm.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we are dedicated to helping people get the compensation they deserve in order to help them deal with the repercussions of being injured at work. Injuries that can occur in the workplace include but are not limited to the following:
- Muscle strains
- Broken bones
- Back ailments
Such injuries and many more can all impact on your ability to work and can often lead to a loss of earnings. Accident Advice Helpline is committed to helping you claim compensation to make all of this a little easier to deal with.
