Child Injury at School
The schools of the Buffalo metropolitan area educate approximately 173,000 students each year. Because of the student body’s immense size, it can be difficult to immediately identify who is at fault when a child is injured while on school property. In the video below, personal injury attorney Michael Ranzenhofer discusses how parents can determine fault in a child injury at school.
Responsibility depends on the facts and circumstances of each case. In schools, children are in constant interaction, and another child can be responsible for your own child’s injury. Sometimes an administrator or a teacher may be responsible instead. It is important to conduct an investigation to determine exactly what happened and how your child became injured. There are circumstances under which the school itself is responsible, but you must do a careful evaluation to figure out whether it is the school or another child who was responsible for a child injury at school.
Was your child injured while at school? You may be entitled to recover compensation for the injuries your child sustained when entrusted to the care of the school.
