Accidents at School
From Pre-K to high school, we want to know our children are in safe and supportive environments every day where they can learn and socialize safely. There are, however, many possible hazards that pose the risk of injury if caregivers are negligent. For example, hallways are often floored with linoleum tiles, which can become extremely slippery after a spill or after a rain when students track water inside.
Children often don’t think of their safety as much as they should; a child having fun could be caught unaware by a wet patch on the floor and suffer broken bones, a brain injury, or even a spinal cord injury in a slip and fall accident. Children who ride the school bus in the morning and afternoon are at risk of being injured in a collision, as they typically have no seatbelts to secure them in the event of a crash. Broken or defective equipment, both in the classroom and on the playground, presents another major set of risks.
It is inexcusable for any institution trusted with the care of children to allow accidents like these to endanger them. You might be able to hold a school district liable for poor policies that put your child, and others, in danger.
By filing a personal injury claim after an accident at school, you are not only helping your child but other children as well. With success, you could compel an individual school or the district to implement new policies and procedures or install safety equipment to protect children from suffering similar injuries. Additionally, you may be able to recover financial compensation to pay for your child's medical expenses in the present and future, as well as for other lifestyle impacts and changes caused by their accident.
It’s not easy to see your child in pain—as a parent, you want to do everything you can to help them. Our team wants to do everything we can to help as well. If your child has been injured in an accident at school, we want to help you pursue justice for your family and encourage safer schools for all.
