School Accident Compensation Claims

Schools should be happy and safe spaces, but unfortunately, if badly managed, they can pose certain dangers, as with any public space. Many accidents at school happen on school grounds and at nurseries; however we can also help with accidents at colleges and universities.

Schools and other educational establishment occupiers have the same responsibility as any other who allow public access to their premises. Therefore if you or your child falls due to an obviously broken step which should have been repaired, or if your child falls from dangerous play equipment, you could have a claim for school accident compensation.

We have experience of handling claims on behalf of children who have sustained an injury at school, or teachers and visitors who have been injured as a result of school premises. Freeclaim have expert solicitors who can help you claim school accident compensation. We can give you expert no win no fee advice on making a compensation claim, which means there’s no risk and nothing to pay if you lose.

Common school accident compensation claims

Some of the most common accidents at school and other educational establishment claims include:

  • Slips and trips on school grounds or campus
  • Accidents caused by faulty equipment such as desks, chairs or play equipment
  • Sporting accidents resulting in personal injury
