Accidents In School Or College

They say school days are the best days of your life. And for both teachers and students, working at a school or college should be a safe environment at all times.

Classrooms, playing fields and hallways are all areas to learn, exercise and socialise, and usually, this is exactly what happens.

However, if someone does have an accident at school or on school premises, we can provide expert legal advice and help you, or your child get the compensation for an accident or injury.

Some examples of compensation claims from schools and colleges can arise from:

  • trips or falls caused by poorly maintained floors, playgrounds or sports areas
  • dangerous or defective equipment and fittings (for example poorly maintained chairs, desks or doorways)
  • failing to grit walkways during icy weather
  • inadequately supervised activities (such as science experiments or sporting events)
  • failure to adequately supervise other students

We are here to help you

Our personal injury experts understand that as a parent or teacher, you want the children you care for to be safe. That’s why we’ll do everything in our power to get the compensation you deserve, leaving you to focus on getting well and back to school.
