Compensation claims filed by teacher
A teacher has filed a compensation claim due to the personal injury she suffered whilst working at a school.
The tutor is claiming half a million pounds in a personal injury suit, alleging she has permanently damaged her larynx due to yelling at noisy children.
The 39-year-old taught special need pupils aged 11 and stated that her voice was damaged during her attempts to shout over the noise in her classroom.
The case alleges that she has been left with permanent vocal damage because the school failed to provide her with adequate classroom help.
It adds that if the school had rotated her school duties, then her contact with the rowdy students would have been reduced, thus her personal injury would have been less.
As a result, the accident claim writ accuses the school of failing to ensure that the correct number of staff were available to monitor the high number of pupils and she states she received inadequate training to prevent her from being injured.
She is claiming up to £500,000 in general damages.
