Our personal injury attorneys have handled many cases involving school injuries that never should have happened. When the school’s teachers and administrators ignore signs of danger, contact an attorney who can assess the situation and hold the school accountable for injuries caused by negligence.
- Ignoring danger: When the school or daycare facility has been informed about a dangerous condition on the property it has an obligation to monitor the situation and take action when necessary. Failure to do so can result in serious injuries.
- Dangerous activities: Safety should come first in school activities. However, supervisors may be negligent when overseeing children, or may not be completely aware of inherent dangers in certain activities.
- Signing a waiver: Even if you signed a waiver for a field trip or extracurricular activity, that does not always relieve the school of liability. The school has an obligation to act responsibly.
- Pattern of negligence: When one child after another is injured due to the same unsafe condition, the school has the obligation to fix the problem and may be liable if it does not.
