What can be claimed if your child is injured at school?
Are you unsure about what can be claimed if your child was hurt at school? Get professional advice on what to do and what can be claimed. Claims relating to injury of children have to be made within 3 years of the incident, or before the child’s 19th birthday. As a parent, you can claim for past medical expenses, future medical expenses (based on the opinions of experts), and in instances where the injury has resulted in disability that requires changes to the child’s living environment (for example – ramps for a wheelchair, etc), these costs too can be claimed from the liable party. If your child suffered an injury that was not life changing, but was, however, extensive – you can claim a once-off compensation amount for general damages which depends on a number of factors, including the initial injury, the pain experienced at the time of injury, medical treatment received and to be received, temporary disability, permanent disability and permanent changes to lifestyle.
