Has your child suffered an
injury whilst at school? is a site dedicated to assisting people who have been injured or hurt on the grounds of a school, college, university or nursery. Our aim is to help you understand what are the most common school injuries are, how you can claim and if you are entitled to make a claim. We can also assist you with what your legal rights are in the event that you are injured at school. Many of the injuries which occur at a school, university, college or a nursery are usually less serious such as general knocks and bruises, however some can often be serious requiring both medical attention and treatment.

Injuries caused in these places are unfortunately common and will often involve children. It is important that you know your rights whether you are a parent whose child has been injured, a teacher or a visitor. It is important to remember that although schools may find it impossible to prevent personal injuries from occurring, they are legally obliged to take the practical steps to ensure they are preventable.

If you have been injured due to negligence from either a school, nursery, college, university or an individual, you could be entitled to make a claim. To find out how much you could claim for your personal injury simply use our FREE, no obligation compensation calculator.

If you have suffered an injury due to one of the following causes you might be entitled to claim compensation:
  • A slip or trip within the school building or school grounds due to badly maintained facilities
  • Defective equipment such as chairs, desks or play equipment
  • Carrying heavy objects without the correct training or equipment
  • A sporting accident
  • Food poisoning
We work alongside a panel of nationwide Solicitors who are experts in advising on injuries arising in educational facilities and due to the sometimes technical nature of making a claim it is necessary to talk to an expert to establish if a claim can be made and the best way to proceed.

School injury claims can often be complex so it is essential that you seek legal advice from an experienced personal injury solicitor. Claiming compensation for an injury at school will often involve acquiring evidence from fellow students, teachers, pupils and visitors. No matter how minor or severe your injury, MTA Solicitors can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
