Injured at School?
Posted on 13th November 2018
When one thinks of personal injury, you’d be forgiven for thinking of road traffic accident solicitors, accident claim solicitors, accident injury solicitors, and personal injury solicitors Preston, but not teachers being injured by unruly pupils in the classroom.
However, even the best medical negligence solicitors and personal injury solicitors Preston are shocked to announce that compensation payouts for teachers unfortunate enough to suffer a personal injury at the hands of disruptive pupils, has soared in the past 12 months, with one teaching union alone securing almost £28m for its members. Unions are blaming cuts by the government and local councils, leaving classrooms short staffed, and lacking teaching assistants, with the intrinsic knock on effect that unruly pupils are getting out of control. Accident injury solicitors in Lancaster, along with best medical negligence solicitors Longridge, Lancaster, Chorley and Garstang, are aware that some teachers have suffered injuries as a result of being head-butted, kicked, punched and on one occasion solicitors Morecambe noting that a recent study has shown one teacher to have been subjected to “bullying and harassment” which led her to become ill with a “significant and debilitating psychiatric injury”.
MG Legal, accident claim solicitors, are aware of such incidents, and have represented, and obtained compensation for teachers, and indeed, pupils who have suffered injuries whilst in the grounds of a school or college. MG Legal, solicitors Lancaster, accept instruction on a No Win No Fee basis, on all injury claims, including injuries at school, any injuries at the hands of a doctor, surgeon or medical practitioner, needing solicitors who deal with medical negligence. As per the unfortunate teachers mentioned above, the compensation received for being injured whilst under the aegis of a local authority school or college can be life-changing; Compensation won by NASUWT members increased by 72 per cent this year, up from £16.1m in 2015. More than £4.7m was won by members of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) and the NUT gave selected examples equating to £338,532, with one teacher receiving £98,000.00 in compensation after one solitary incident, during which they were attacked by a pupil.
