Kids and teenagers spend thousands of hours at school. You send them off in the morning to get an education and learn about the world...never expecting that they could be injured in the very place you expect them to be safe from harm. And yet it happens.
Some accidents are bound to happen. A child can fall down the stairs simply because they tripped, or they can sprain their ankle in gym class. But, if your child was injured and you think the school was responsible because they were negligent in some way, you may have a case. Our lawyers are ready to help you learn your legal options and get your family compensation for your child's injuries.
Like daycare facilities, schools have an obligation to protect students. Unfortunately, schools also pose many safety hazards. Here are just a few examples of school accidents:
If the school is responsible for your child's injuries, they should be held accountable. It can be hard to file a legal claim against a public school system – you must be able to prove they are directly responsible for causing the accident, and you need to have an experienced attorney on your side. Private schools may be a bit less complicated, but you also should hire a lawyer to protect your rights and help you navigate the legal system.
If your child was seriously injured while at school, and you think someone else was responsible for the accident, you may need legal help from one of our Pennsylvania attorneys. There's only one way to find out if you have a case. Call 1-866-943-3427 or fill out the form at the top right of this webpage for a free legal consultation.
Remember, evidence disappears quickly, and there are time limits to file a claim. Even if you think your child will fully recover, it's worth a call to learn your legal options, before it's too late.
