A compensation claim of GBP 2.5 million has been made by the family of a boy blinded in one eye by an accident involving a paintbrush.
Thomas Brown was pierced in the left eye by a paintbrush when he fell onto it at Ladywell School in Motherwell in 2003.
His family has successfully sued North Lanarkshire Council but they will not discover how much they will receive until January 2012.
Judge Lady Dorrian ruled that the school's teachers had not done enough to prevent the accident form occurring.
A spokesman for North Lanarkshire Council said: "We are studying the court's findings and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage."
Earlier this month, the Watford Observer reported that teenager Alice Fallon, who will be blind for the rest of her life due to the alleged negligence of a doctor, could soon be successful in her multimillion-pound compensation claim.
