School Liability in Brooklyn | What You Need to Know

There are few things worse than knowing your child’s school is not keeping your child safe. Unfortunately, this happens more frequently than anyone would like to admit, and if you believe that your child has been harmed because of his school’s negligence, there is a very good chance you may be entitled to compensation. Please continue reading and speak with our Brooklyn personal injury attorneys to learn more about school liability and how our firm can help you and your child recover the compensation you need. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are some of the most common forms of school negligence?

Schools can behave negligently with our children in a multitude of ways, including the following:

  • Allowing children to play on rusty or unsafe playground equipment
  • Failing to provide safe conditions for children, including unsafe air/drinking water/spoiled food
  • School bus accidents due to negligent bus drivers
  • Improper supervision in recess or gym class, leading to serious injury
  • Dismissing a child to the wrong parent/guardian
  • Sexual/physical abuse
  • Leaving dangerous materials, such as scissors, laying around in classrooms where children are too young to responsibly handle them

What should I do if I suspect my child was hurt due to school negligence?

If you believe that your child was hurt due to school negligence, you must retain the services of an experienced Brooklyn personal injury attorney who can work to obtain all the evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof. Simply put, this means that our firm will have to prove that your child was injured as a direct result of your child’s school’s negligence.

How long will I have to sue a school in New York City?

If you are someone who is looking to sue your child’s school for an incident of negligence or abuse, you must do so quickly. Though the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally three years in New York State, when it comes to suing schools for injuries, this is not the case. When looking to sue a school, you will have to file a Notice of Claim within 90 days of the incident. If you do not, you will most likely be barred from suing. Rather obviously, time is of the essence, which is why you must speak with our experienced firm today. We are ready to help you and your child seek the justice you deserve. All you have to do is ask.
