Are you looking for advice about treatment for injuries sustained from an accident at school? Slips, trips and falls are common occurrences in schools and can lead to a range of cuts, bruises or more severe injuries. If your child has a nasty slip, trip or fall in school, they may suffer from concussion or something more severe. It’s important to get your child seen by a medical professional as soon as possible if they have sustained injuries at school. Let’s take a look at ways we can treat school-related injuries to help shorten recovery times.
Choose the right treatment for injuries sustained from an accident at school.
- Has your child suffered from a cut and graze? If so, you should try and clean the area with water or a non-alcoholic antiseptic wipe. Elevation and pressure can also help with this kind of injury. Once the area has been treated, you should apply a plaster or a dressing to stop it from being infected.
- If your child has suffered a bump to the head, you may wish to use a cold compress. If the injury seems serious, you should seek medical advice, especially if they are still feeling woozy hours after the event or have been sick.
- Do you suspect your child has broken a bone? If so, immobilise the limb and seek medical help. It’s wise not to provide them with painkillers, as these can mask the symptoms of serious injuries which need to be investigated.
Make sure the school has a contact number for you or a nominated person so a school can always get in touch if your child has come to harm.
If your child has been injured in an accident that can be linked to negligence on the part of the school, we can help. Badly-maintained surfaces and faulty equipment are common causes of accidents that could have easily been avoided. We have been getting justice for children, parents, teachers and visitors that have come to harm whilst on school premises for many years, and what’s more is that you don’t need any money to start a claim with us.
We work on a no-win, no-fee* basis too, which means taking action doesn’t have to mean taking a huge financial gamble. It’s worth getting in touch with us as soon as possible after an accident so we can get things moving whilst memories remain clear and act within the usual three-year time limit.
