School Liability

School Liability Attorney in Washington, D.C., Maryland & Virginia

If your child has been injured while under the care and supervision of his or her school it may be in your best interest to contact a law firm that has school liability lawyers Washington DC families can count on.

Regardless of whether or not your family has insurance that will cover some or all of the cost of your child’s injury, you may be entitled to compensation. If the school was negligent in their care, supervision, or maintenance of their facility, they may be liable for injuries and damages to your child and your family.

In 2012, over 78 million people in the United States were enrolled in school, including both public and private nursery, kindergarten, elementary, middle and high schools, as well as charter schools, colleges and universities. More than half of these students were minors enrolled in elementary and secondary schools.

Students can be injured at school because of many different circumstances. The two most common circumstances surrounding school related injuries are accidents on the playground and injuries sustained during athletic events. In these cases, schools might be held liable if proper safety regulations and equipment were not provided to the students, or if the school neglected to provide proper supervision.

Other circumstances in which schools can be held liable for injuries include school bus accidents, school violence, and sexual harassment or assault of a student by a teacher or other school professional. Any school related accident or incident can cause severe injuries. These can cause physical injuries such as broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, or wrongful death.  Severe emotional and mental damage are also considered injuries. An experienced school liability lawyer will know which questions to ask to see if the school is liable for your child’s injuries and will know how to protect your child and your family’s rights. If your child or someone you know was injured while at school, talking to a team of school liability lawyers Washington DC residents can turn to in situations like yours, may help you to understand your options for trying to protect your loved one and your family’s rights.

However, government immunity sometimes protects schools from liability cases. This is just one reason you should contact the Washington DC injury lawyers of Cohen & Cohen right away if you feel that a school should be held liable for your child’s injury.

Education laws surrounding school liability can vary from state to state.

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. Siri Palm 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.
