Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

School Liability Law Firm Washington DCEven though people would like to think that when they send their children and teens to school in the morning that they will safely return home in the same condition that they left in, the need for an experienced school liability law firm Washington DC families can rely on is on the rise.

School Liability

When someone is injured while on someone else’s property, the property owner and in some cases, property managers and tenants, may be liable for expenses related to the person’s injury. Schools are no different. Both public and private schools may be held accountable for negligence that led to a child’s (or adult’s) injury on their campuses.

Regardless of whether or not a family has insurance that will cover some or all of the costs of a child’s school-related injury, the child and his or her family may be entitled to compensation. If the school was negligent in their care or supervision of a child who became injured as a result of this, or if they were negligent in the upkeep and maintenance of their school site, they may be liable for injuries and damages to the child and his or her family.

People often seek compensation for school related injuries with the help of a reputable personal injury law firm that is experienced with successfully defending the rights of students and education providers. Personal injury claims may be settled outside of court or they may need to be disputed in a civil court with a judge or with a judge and a jury.

If your child or an adult who is close to you has been injured while on a school’s property, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a school liability law firm Washington DC school-related injury victims and their families recommend.

Common Causes of School Related Injuries

School related injuries can be physical and/or emotional. They can be the result of an adult or another student’s negligence, malice or reckless behavior. When this is the result of another student’s negligence, malice or reckless behavior, an adult or adults who were supervising the students may ultimately be held liable for injuries that occurred on their watch.

Common causes of school related injuries include but are not limited to:

  • Faulty or dangerous playground equipment
  • Lack of supervision (anyplace) on campus
  • Student to student violence
  • Student to adult violence
  • Adult to student violence
  • Sexual assaults
  • Bullying and tormenting
  • Improper safety gear and monitoring
  • Improper touching and physical contact
  • Weapons
  • Inadequate security
  • Sports and athletic events

Common School Related Injuries

Common school related injuries can result in but are not limited to the following:

  • Bruises and soft tissue damage
  • Sprains and torn muscles, ligaments and tendons
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Dislocated joints (such as shoulders and fingers, etc.)
  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal injuries
  • Cuts, lacerations and wounds
  • Severe emotional and/or mental damage
  • Suicide
  • Death

The U.S. Department of Education holds school staff, employees and school professionals responsible for maintaining order and discipline on school campuses. When one or more school employee fails to do this, the school may be liable for injuries that are the result of this failure.

Many people find it helpful to discuss their or a loved one’s school related injury with a law firm that has lawyers that are licensed to practice in the state where their or their loved one’s injury occurred.

I am very satisfied with the services provided by Cohen and Cohen. They were able to settle my case within less than a year and settled a fair amount in which I was expecting. They communicated very well throughout the process as well as made sure all boxes were checked off to ensure i received the best care and communication.

Lucas Baudry was my rep for this accident claim, and even though I had LOADS of questions and was a bit impatient, he was always responsive and quick to reply. We’re wrapping up now, and I really feel like he tried to have the best results in the end, and didn’t drag it out more than need be.
