Tort and Personal Injury

Student injured while on school grounds or in care of school.

As a parent, you do not expect an accident or wrongful act to occur at school that leads to your child sustaining significant physical injuries or emotional distress. School districts have a legal duty to provide a safe environment for students and to protect them while on school property, when transporting them to and from school and in various other circumstances where the school has assumed responsibility for the students. A school district's failure to meet this standard can result in a negligence claim against a school district.
