Recently, a Missouri family was awarded almost $2 million after their son was injured at school. According to a representative of the Jefferson County Public schools, the school was ordered to pay $1.75 million to a student and his family after the boy was injured by school officials in November of 2014. According to the documents, the 16-year-old boy’s legs were both broken when a Binet staff member used a physical restraint. The physical restraint technique is known as a cradle assist, and often used by school officials. Binet School serves children with learning and other disabilities.
