Are Schools in Queens Liable for Wrongful Injuries?

Parents all over New York City trust that when they sent their child to school, he or she will be well taken care of and in good hands. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and if you are a parent whose child was recently injured in an accident due to no fault of his or her own, you should strongly consider retaining the services of a knowledgeable Queens personal injury lawyer who can use decades of experience to handle such pressing and sensitive legal issues. Please continue reading and contact our firm to learn more about whether your child’s school may be liable for his or her injuries. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do I know if a school is liable for my child’s injuries?

There are various forms of school negligence. For example, if your school’s playground equipment is rusty or defective and your child sustained an injury as a result, you will most likely have a valid claim. Additionally, if your child was injured in a school bus accident, you will also most likely have a claim. Some additional types of school negligence include improper supervision, leaving a child with the wrong parent, neglecting to provide students with clean water and safe food, and more. Finally, if your child is the victim of abuse by a staff member, you should also have a claim. If you suspect your child is the victim of any accident that occured while on school grounds, you must speak with our firm as soon as you can. We are here to help.

What is the statute of limitations for school injuries in NYC?

In most cases, the statute of limitations for standard personal injury claims in New York State is three years. However, this is not the case when it comes to most school injuries. If your child was harmed in an accident at school, you will have to file a Notice of Claim within 90 days of the accident. If you wait any longer than 90 days, there is a very good chance that you lose your right to sue. The bottom line is that the sooner you bring your claim to our attention, the better off you will be. The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny is here to help.
