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.
