School is supposed to be a safe place where children can receive the vital education they need to succeed. Many schools, whether public or private, struggle with managing oversized and understaffed classrooms, troubled students, and poorly maintained school premises. All of these issues can lead to unsafe learning environments, and can cause injuries to students.
If a child you know and love has been injured at school, whether because of a dangerous condition on the school premises or because of a dangerous student, that child has a right to recover from the school for those injuries.
It is important to contact a personal injury attorney right away, especially if the student was injured at a public school, because the time to file a personal injury claim against a school can be limited. For example, when an accident occurs at a public school, a Notice of Claim must be filed within 90 days of the date of incident.
