Whilst attending school, college or nursery your child is owed a duty of care by teachers and other members of staff to ensure they are safe whilst under their care.
If your child has been injured as a result of an accident in school which was not their fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation on behalf of your child.
Accidents in schools are fairly common and may be caused as a result of the following:
– defective areas within the school/playground;
– defective equipment used by children;
– slipping due to the presence of liquid within the school;
– slipping due to school’s failure to deal with ice forming in outdoor play areas.
Although most child accidents at school are fairly minor, in some rare cases an accident will have occurred due to the negligence of someone else. If this is the case, then you may be entitled to claim compensation for your child’s injuries.
