Cambridgeshire Teachers Receive £150k In Personal Injury Claims
28th November 2013
Five Cambridgeshire teachers have received a total of more than £150,000 in personal injury compensation claims last year, figures from Cambridge News have revealed.
This comes as the NASUWT union revealed it helped its members across the country secure a record sum of £15.6 million last year.
Cambridgeshire County Council cabinet member for education and learning Councillor David Harty confirmed that all the compensation claims were covered by the local authority’s insurers.
He pointed out that the school district has 8,000 members of staff and 200 schools in it, so the number of personal injury claims made against it was small.
One of the teachers was compensated for injuries sustained in an assault, two were for slips, trips and falls and two related to accidents involving doors.
The news source also reported that a teacher from the county received £16,500 in an accident at work compensation claim when they suffered a broken hip after falling over a chair when trying to get the attention of a co-worker. This incident happened in a secure troubled girls’ school.
