At Worby Groner Edelman, our White Plains school accident attorneys have experience representing clients who have been injured in school. Children spend a lot of time in school. Between transportation to and from school and the school day itself, a child might spend up to eight hours a day in school. The sad truth is that dangerous conditions exist in schools, and can cause accidents with serious injuries. A child injured in school may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, and pain and suffering. It is up to us as parents to diligently protect our children’s safety, and their right to possible compensation in these cases.
School accidents can result from a dangerous condition, from a lack of supervision by the staff, or even from an automobile accident while being transported to and from school. Bullying, when permitted to continue, can also cause severe injury to a child. In these cases, a school’s insurance company could be liable for these injuries. You will probably have only 90 days to file a claim with the school district for a school accident case. If you fail to file a claim within 90 days, the law might permanently prevent you from doing so in the future.
The attorneys at Worby Groner Edelman have handled a wide range of school injury cases; we can evaluate the claim and determine if your child has a viable case. We will help you handle the details, and answer your questions. Call us for a no obligation consult; there is never a fee unless we are successful.
