The Freedom of Information Act has unveiled statistics from Cornwall Council detailing the fact that the local authority granted damages settlements totalling £47,500 throughout the 2010-11 financial year, according to the BBC.
A sum of £30,000 was awarded to an attendee of one of the area's schools who fell from a workbench in a class, while some £10,000 was granted by officials to another individual injured when they were struck by a stone.
Meanwhile, a total of £2,000 was handed over to a pupil hurt after being hit with a ball during a lesson.
This comes after The Bolton News reported that Bolton Council awarded £5,250 to an eight-year-old school pupil who fell onto a gate while at an educational establishment in the town.
