We expect schools to keep our children safe, but they don’t always live up to our expectations.  When schools teachers, staff or administrators are negligent in their duty, children are injured and deserve compensation.  An experienced School Accident Lawyer knows all the rules and can represent your child in actions against schools careless and reckless behavior that’s harmed them.  Child Injury Attorneys in NYC devote themselves to helping children and have the experience and compassion to do it right.  Don’t settle for anything less.

EXAMPLES OF NEGLIGENT ACTIONS BY SCHOOLS:

  1. Improper or Insufficient Supervision
  2. Improper Dismissal

  4. Bullying (Peer to Peer or Employees)
  5. School bus accidents

BRINGING AN ACTION AGAINST A PUBLIC SCHOOL IN NEW YORK CITY

There is a tight window to start an action because a “Notice of Claim” must be filed with the City of New York within 90 days of the incident.  Under some circumstances, a claim can be brought later, but it is best practice to adhere to the time limits.  If your child was injured at school, and you suspect negligence, it’s a good idea to contact a school accident lawyer right away.  Private schools do not have this time limits, but it is always a good idea to start actions as quickly as possible.
