When You Should File an Injury Lawsuit Against Your Child’s Coweta County School
Want to discuss claim legitimacy for your child’s injury? Consult a Coweta County personal injury attorney to help you decide whether your claim is valid. In the wake of frivolous lawsuits that have been filed against schools, some may be reluctant to take legal action against your child’s school.
It is true that children get scratches and bruises while playing at school and to sue over such minor injuries seems ridiculous. However, if your child has suffered a serious and preventable injury while in the care of the school, you have every right to hire a child injury attorney and file a suit against the school.
When to File a Personal Injury Suit Against Your Child’s School
As previously mentioned, every bump and bruise your child gets at school does not warrant legal action. However, if your child was seriously injured, and/or had to be hospitalized for an extended period of time due to a hazard that should have been prevented by the school, you have every right to make a claim.
Examples of serious injuries may include:
- blunt force injuries received in a school bus crash that was the fault of the bus driver;
- injuries from school-approved equipment that was not properly maintained; and
- injuries from unsafe conditions at the school that should have been fixed before the injury occurred.
Of course, not all injuries warrant a claim. If the school or its employees were not negligent and met their responsibilities to the student(s), compensation for injuries may not be awarded. As cases differ, an attorney familiar with personal injury law should be consulted when evaluating whether an injury qualifies for a claim.
