Pages On: School Accidents

Schools need to be safe places for children and adults alike. But accidents in schools are far more common than you might expect. A lot of press considers the pursuit against schools for injury compensation to be the scourge of “compensation culture”. However,  schools have a duty of care to protect their pupils, and as such they are liable for injuries. Most claimants will sue a school if the injuries were serious and clearly not at fault for them. They are also workplaces, and have some of the highest rates of work accidents of all other sectors. As such, a teacher, or other staff, injured in a school could seek employer negligence compensation. If you’ve suffered an accident in a school, and you’re not at fault, you may be entitled to compensation.

Pupil wins £250,000 in compensation for serious injury

Posted in: Foot InjuriesPersonal InjuryPublic Place AccidentsSchool Accidents

A Leicester pupil has been awarded £250,000 in compensation after suffering life-changing injuries. Details of the payout made by Leicester City Council were released following a Freedom of Information request. However, the authority has declined all further comment and it is therefore unclear who the child was, how old he or she was, what school the incident happened at, and the extent of the injuries. A council spokesman, however, did state that the compensation covered loss of future career aspiration, suggesting the severity of the child’s injuries. Last year saw…

Pupils across Worcestershire received more than £1 million in compensation in 2013.

A recent report has found that Lincolnshire County Council has paid out over £330,000 in compensation to those injured at school.

An Essex schoolboy has been awarded £15,197 worth of compensation after a teacher threw a DVD case in the classroom and cut his eyebrow. The plastic DVD cover accidently hit the boy, causing him to sustain a “tiny cut to the eyebrow”. The boy’s family succeeded in securing a five-figure pay-out from Essex County Council. The council said that the teacher had not meant to throw the case with such force, and had only been trying to pass the DVD to a pupil but “unintentionally threw it with more force than expected and…

After a 999 call-handler made fatal errors when answering a phone-call regarding a choking baby, the nine-month old baby tragically died as a result. Millie Thompson started choking while being fed Shepard’s pie at her nursery in October 2012, after which a nursery-worker phoned for assistance. Instead of categorizing the phone-call as urgent, ambulance worker Aaliyah Ormerod asked the caller the scripted questions and then failed to remain on the line to listen to the baby’s breathing. It was heard at an inquest that Ms Ormerod should have alerted a…

School trips are not inherently risky in comparison to schools themselves

Posted in: Public Place AccidentsSchool AccidentsSporting InjuriesWrongful & Accidental Death

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is encouraging teachers to embrace outdoor activities after discovering that more accidents take place in schools than on trips. Injuries from leisure activities show that children are far more likely to get hurt playing football or rugby at school than going on a school hiking trip, for instance. Statistics also show that accidental deaths are very rare on school trips – with one child dying each year, on average, in the UK. These figures are set against the 7 – 10…
