    Newcastle upon Tyne personal injury claims


    Newcastle upon Tyne personal injury claims

    Did you know that although many would not like to admit to it, a lot of schools are not entirely safe? As a result of failings in health and safety many people are injured in accidents that have occurred on school grounds each year.

    If, like them, you have been injured as a result of such an accident then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Why not contact one of Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury claims solicitors today to find out if you could be entitled to compensation?

    Teachers and other school staff

    If you have been injured in an accident which occurred at a school you were working in then you could make a claim for compensation. Generally speaking in such situations you would be making a claim against your employer, usually this would be the local Council or Education Authority. Ultimately, it depends who is found to be liable for your accident. In turn, it depends on what caused your accident in the first place.

    Many school-based Newcastle upon Tyne personal injury claims are caused as a result of accidents due to lack of training. While teachers, as an example, are often perfectly well trained to perform the teaching aspects of their role, they are also often asked to engage in other activities. It may be that they have to help out in the office, or move items of equipment from one area to another. While it may not seem that specific training is required to perform these various ad hoc tasks, it is often wise to do so, not to mention a legal requirement.

    For example, if a member of teaching staff is asked to move stationery from one room to another, but is injured in the process then they may be able to make a claim for compensation. Their personal injury claims solicitors would be able to argue that if the teacher had not received suitable training in relation to proper manual handling techniques then their employer had put them at risk by asking them to perform such a task.

    Students

    Students are also at risk from being injured at school, and have just as much right to make Newcastle upon Tyne personal injury claims as their older counterparts. If your child has been injured in an accident and is under the age of 18 then they will not be able to make a claim in their own right.

    In such a case you could claim on their behalf, or they will have three years after their 18th birthday to do so themselves. Why not speak to your personal injury claims solicitor today to find out what the best option is for your child?
