Can I Sue My Child’s School For Negligence Resulting In A Serious Injury?
School staff have a legal responsibility to keep students safe while on school property and during school outings. If your child suffers a serious injury at school – whether during the school day, a sports outing, a field trip, a bus ride or extracurricular school activities – you may be able to sue the school if their negligence (or the negligence of a school employee) contributed to the accident.
