29 pupils were paid out over a five year period to the sum of £150,000 one council has confirmed. The accidents in question took place in schools and the biggest pay out to one pupil was £18,000, after suffering facial injuries following a fall on a school playground.
These figures released show that accidents are very common in schools but despite many of them being deemed accidental, others where a child suffers personal injury, leading to time off school and a recovery period means they may be entitled to compensation.
