Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Even though schools have traditionally been thought of as safe and healthy places to send a child for the day, the prevalence of school related injuries in Maryland and the surrounding states has created a need for a good school liability law firm Maryland families can trust.

School Attendance Facts

According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) approximately 50.7 million students will attend public elementary and secondary schools in the 2017/2018 school year. An additional 5.2 million students (approximately) will attend private elementary and secondary schools. Prior to the beginning of the 2017/2018 school year, it was anticipated that approximately 20.4 million students will attend colleges and universities.

Causes of School Related Injuries

Because there are so many students enrolled in schools, it is inevitable that some of these students will become injured while on their school or university’s property. Because of all of the teachers, administrators, staff, and other employees that it takes to run these different schools, the likelihood of some of these people becoming injured while at work is also fairly high

School related injuries can be physical, mental, emotional, or a combination of all of these. They can be the result of:

  • School employee to student violence
  • Student to school employee violence
  • Student to student violence
  • School employee to school employee violence
  • Sexual assaults
  • Improper touching or physical contact
  • Faulty or dangerous playground equipment
  • Asbestos, mold, and other environmental hazards
  • Faulty and/or dangerous playground equipment
  • Lack of supervision
  • Inadequate security and safety measures
  • Bullying and tormenting
  • Weapons
  • Sporting and athletic events

The above list is not exhaustive of all of the different possible school related injuries.

Schools and Liability

In the United States, when someone is injured on someone else’s property because of someone else’s neglect, malice or reckless behavior, the negligent party may be liable for expenses related to the person’s injuries. This is true of both public and private institutions for education.

If a property owner (and in some situations, a property manager or tenant) is negligent in providing adequate safety and security measures for people who occupy and visit their property, and someone becomes injured as the result of this, the injured person may be entitled to compensation. A victim of this type of injury may be able to recover money for their injuries through a personal injury claim in a civil court. Many people find that this is easier and more efficient to do with the help of a school liability law firm Maryland residents recommend, rather than try to do this on their own.

Compensation for School Related Injuries

Personal injury laws differ from state to state but in most states, the plaintiff (and often with the help of an attorney) need to prove two basic things:

1) The plaintiff was/is in fact injured
2) The plaintiff’s injury was caused by the defendant’s negligence, malice or reckless behavior

Children, teens, and adults who are injured on school property may be entitled to compensation because of:

  • Medical bills (current and projected)
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of childcare and/or household management
  • Loss of abilities
  • Loss of benefits
  • Loss of spouse or parental support
  • Funeral and burial or cremation costs
  • Pain and grieving

The above information is a general overview of compensation for school related injuries. It is not intended to be legal advice in any way.

If you or someone you love was injured while on a school’s property in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC or in the surrounding communities, or if someone close to you has died because of this, you may find it helpful to discuss your rights with a lawyer who is licensed to practice law in the state that the injury occurred- and who is experienced at successfully defending the rights of injured people and their families.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
