School Accident

Your child spends a significant amount of time in school, and you trust that their safety is a priority. You accept the fact that minor slips and falls can happen on the playground and even in gym class. These injuries are minor and easily handled by the school nurse, but what about more serious injuries?

Negligent security in schools can result in serious to catastrophic accidents. If your child is injured in a school accident due to negligent security, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Morgan & Morgan today to learn more about your school accident case and for a free no-obligation case evaluation.

  • Common Causes of School Accidents

    School buses can present dangers, especially if the bus is involved in an accident. Sometimes, driver negligence is to blame for the bus collision. Other types of common school accidents include:

    • Teacher negligence
    • Food poisoning
    • Slip and fall accidents
    • Playground injuries
    • Exposure to hazardous or toxic substances
    • Bullying and hazing
    • Physical education injuries
    • Sports activities

    Negligence in hiring and training staff members may contribute to a school accident. Failure to maintain equipment and facilities is another common cause of injuries at school. Lack of supervision can contribute to the cause of a school accident, along with negligent security practices. If your child is injured at school due to negligent security, contact Morgan & Morgan to learn more about your legal options.

  • Steps to Take After a School Accident

    Reporting your child’s accident to the school is a priority. Sometimes, schools may not be aware of the injury, especially if it occurs on the bus. Seek immediate medical attention for your child. Your child’s health is paramount. You’ll also need the medical records if you decide to pursue a personal injury case.

    A representative for the school district may contact you requesting information. They may want to speak with your child about the accident or request copies of medical records. Don’t discuss your case with anyone without legal representation. This also includes the school’s insurance adjuster.

    You’ll want to contact a personal injury attorney from Morgan & Morgan. We have an extensive nationwide network of attorneys, and one is located in your area. We can help protect your legal rights, and this includes ensuring you receive full and fair compensation.
