Schools should be safe places where children can learn, play and grow without the worry of being hurt or becoming ill. Sadly, not all school children have this experience and accidents at school happen more often than you might think – up to ten times as much as at home, according to the Association of British Insurers.
Hamilton Douglas Legal are able to assist any child or parent who has been injured in any way at school, including being bullied and/or witnessed bullying and harassment due to their disability or having been excluded from a class or school by the teachers or staff.
A school accident compensation claim can be brought against the school, an outside company hired by the school, or the individual in charge of overseeing and managing the grounds of the school.
Each of these parties may be held responsible when a pupil suffers an injury while attending class at your child’s school. If you are interested in pursuing a school accident compensation claim, you need to get in touch with Hamilton Douglas Legal immediately so that we can review your case and advise you on what steps you should take next to make sure you receive adequate compensation for your injuries.
THE CLAIMS PROCESS
After consulting with one of our friendly accident injury claims specialists, we will connect you with one of our experienced solicitors who will thoroughly discuss your claim, answer any concerns you may have, and initiate your claim. Your attorney will next file a claim with the at-fault insurer. The solicitor will keep you updated throughout the claim process, until you are satisfied with the outcome. All of this is free!

WHAT IS THE LAW IN SCOTLAND REGARDING ACCIDENT CLAIMS AT SCHOOL?
In general, parents have a right to trust that their children will be protected from serious injury while in school. The law does not compel schools to protect children fully from danger – that would be impossible – but it does require them to take reasonable precautions to ensure their safety.
Common accidents in school include the following:
- Accidents involving faulty playground equipment
- Slips, trips, and falls on school grounds
- School trip accidents
- Accidents in the classroom, eg faulty chair, desk or play equipment
- Being exposed to harmful substances
- Food poisoning from school meals
If you are considering filing a personal injury claim for compensation after your child was harmed at school, you must be able to establish that the damage was caused by someone else’s negligence.
