There are times when we as parents have to visit potential schools in order to check out their suitability for our children. With this in mind, we should be able to assume that they are safe enough for us as well as our children.
However, as we know only too well here at Accident Advice Helpline along with no-win, no-fee in Mauchline solicitors, accidents can happen to adults visiting schools just as they can happen to children. With this in mind, it is worth considering just some of the pitfalls that can arise from visiting a strange location, as well as being unfamiliar with how they operate. A great number of accidents occur because of the following:
- Unmoved obstacles;
- Poor or inadequate lighting; and
- Incorrect or poor signposting of directions.
As much as these issues can cause problems during the course of our everyday lives, they can cause just as much in the way of accidents in a school environment. But we can help. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have dealt with many instances in which accidents have occurred because of one or more of the aforementioned list.
If you think the school is at fault
Just as with any environment, a school is a workplace and a place where our children (as well as us adults) are supposed to be safe. To this end, if we are not safe and have suffered an accident that was not our fault, then we have the right to seek recourse with the understanding that due care and attention was not given when it came to ensuring our safety.
Within a school or college environment, there should be a duty of care that covers not only the safety of the children who are educated there but also the adults who teach at them or are visiting the building in any other capacity. Accident Advice Helpline are experienced and knowledgeable in dealing with the fallout of such incidents.
