  • Examples of School Accidents

    When we think of school accidents, we mostly imagine school bus-related crashes. But that’s not all there is to these types of accidents. Some common examples of school accidents include:

    • Slips and falls, especially on wet floors or icy playgrounds
    • Sports-related injuries during gym class or on sports teams
    • Classroom-based accidents, like injuries from sharp objects or heavy items falling
    • Accidents at school labs or workshops, especially if safety protocols aren't followed.
  • Common Causes of School Accidents

    Many school accidents stem from hazards that haven’t been addressed. We are talking about cases involving:

    • slippery floors;
    • poorly maintained playground equipment
    • lack of supervision; or even
    • inadequate training on how to use equipment safely or follow proper emergency procedures.
  • Who Can Be Held Responsible?

    Determining who's responsible for a school accident can be tricky and depends on the specifics of the incident. That’s why we recommend having your case reviewed by a school accident specialist at Morgan and Morgan.

    Generally, the school could be held liable if the accident was due to negligence. A good example of such a situation is when the school fails to provide a safe environment. 

    Teachers or staff might also be responsible if it’s shown that their lack of supervision or proper conduct contributed to the accident. 

    In some cases, even third parties like equipment manufacturers could be held accountable if faulty products, such as exercise equipment or sports gear, are to blame.
