The Insurance Department has vast experience of dealing with claims against Education establishments from Infant Schools to Universities. As an example we act for over 30 Further Education Colleges.

Forbes work with various Insurers and Claims Handlers defending a wide range of claims made including Public Liability and Employers' liability. We have an excellent track record of defending claims at trial and in particular of having claims discontinued after gathering all necessary witness and medical evidence. We have also dealt with many cases alleging a failure to properly educate and a number of defamation cases against staff members. We are acutely aware of the sensitivity attached to all cases involving educational establishments be they claims on behalf of students, staff or visitors. We regularly provide training sessions to senior staff in relation to the legal framework around claims and the proper investigation of claims.
