Columbia School Accident Lawyer

Statistically, school is a safer place for your child than at home. But when it comes to serious injuries, statistics simply do not matter. If your child was injured on school grounds, there is a chance that the school, or another party, was negligent in their duty of care to your child. If this is the case, a personal injury claim is warranted to hold that party financially accountable for your child’s pain and suffering, medical expenses, and other damages.  Marc Brown will never stop fighting for what you and your child are owed.

Slip and Falls

There is a big difference between a student running in the hallway and tripping over their untied shoelace versus slipping on a wet surface  that should have been either mopped up or cordoned off with a warning sign.

Playground Accidents

Most school accidents occur on the playground. And, most of these accidents are no one’s fault in particular. However, if the playground equipment was defective or damaged, or your young child was not being properly watched by adults during recess, the school may be liable for your child’s injuries.

Bullying or Horseplay

Most schools have strict anti-bullying policies. Most schools also have plenty of bullies to go around despite these policies. If your child was harmed by a bully, the school and/or that other child’s parents may be liable for your child’s damages. The same goes with fights and excessive horseplay.

School Bus Collisions

While many school buses do not have seatbelts, buses are still one of the safest vehicles on the road (for those inside the bus). However, negligent driving, improper upkeep of the bus, or defective brakes/tires can all be grounds for a personal injury claim. Similarly, if your child was injured while walking or riding their bike to school by a school bus driver, chances are that the school can be held accountable.

Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse permanently scars young children and young adults. If a teacher, coach, school administrator, or other school staff member has ever inappropriately touched your child or engaged in any type of sexual act, the authorities need to be contacted immediately, and a personal injury claim should be filed against the school.

Sports Injuries

Most school sports injuries are not grounds for a personal injury claim. However, improper coaching—such as putting a student back in play after being concussed—is an example of when a school can be held responsible for any injuries your child may have suffered.

Parking Lot Injuries

The driver of the personal vehicle can be held liable if your child was hit by a motor vehicle in the parking lot. If excessive speeding or reckless driving behavior by other students has been a long standing problem, the school may be liable as well.
