When parents drop their children off at school each day, they should not have to worry about them being exposed to unnecessary dangers. Whilst most parents accept than accidents can happen, where a serious injury has been sustained by their child at school, parents will often question the circumstances surrounding the accident and whether there were adequate supervision/safety precautions in place.
Schools have a duty of care to their pupils and due to the fact that children cannot be expected to be fully capable of taking care of their own safety, it is the school’s responsibility to ensure that necessary precautions are in place to prevent accidents from happening. As such, it may be possible to make a claim for compensation following a child’s accident at school.
