Every town and city in the UK has schools that children attend. We drop our kids off and then assume that they will be safe and away from any harm. That is what we have every right to expect. But on occasions accidents do happen in school – children get bumped and knocked all of the time. But what if the accident is more serious than that – what if a child’s injuries are so bad that they need medical treatment?
If this happened and it was not from the fault of your child, but the fault of the school, then you should contact the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline, so that they can assist you in making a personal injury claim against the school.
Accidents at school
As soon as your child is on the school’s property, any accident could happen to them. For example:
- They could be assaulted or attacked;
- They could be run over by a car in the car parks;
- They could be hurt on damaged furniture;
- They could fall down wet stairs that have no warning signs, or the stairs could have a broken or missing handrail;
- In older buildings, they could be exposed to asbestos;
- They could be injured while in the gym because of a lack of teacher supervision; or
- They could have contracted food poisoning.
Here in this list are just a few accidents that could occur. If your child is injured in one of these or any other accident at school that was not their fault, you should use solicitors in order to make a personal injury claim on their behalf.
A claim against the school
Children or their parents sometimes feel that they cannot make an injury claim against their school because they feel guilty that school funding will be used to pay for the claim. There is no need to fear this, as the school will be insured for such incidents — a premium they have to pay whether or not any claims are made against them.
