Do you need to make a claim for compensation after school accidents in Monmouth? Whenever you go out in public, and whatever you’re planning on doing, you have the right to be safe as you do it. The owners of any building, public or private, where you plan on visiting have a number of responsibilities and obligations towards your safety. These are often legally known as a Duty of Care.
If any organisation or the staff working for it breaches this Duty of Care causing accidents or injuries, the people affected as a result have the right to make injury claims for school accidents in Monmouth.
Beware Sports Day
There are certain rituals and events which are quintessentially British. Wimbledon, Ladies Day at Ascot and the Boxing Day Sale are among them. Also present is School Sports Day. From traditional egg and spoon races to more modern equivalents such as the sack race, there is something for everyone regardless of how athletic they might be.
As a parent, you’ll know that during your child’s time at school, the responsibility for their safety lies with the school and the staff who work there. This means it is they who have a duty of care towards your child, and if you were to make school accidents in Monmouth for any injury your child sustained at school, it would be them who you would make your legal claim against.
The same legal duty of care is extended to anyone else who is legally entitled to be on school property. Therefore, if you were invited to sports day, further invited to take part and were injured as the result of poor management by the school, you would have the right to seek compensation.
