Columbia Child Injury Lawyer on School Liability

Columbia Child Injury Lawyer on School Liability


Hi, my name is Kenneth Berger. If your child
is hurt on the care of one of South Carolina’s public schools, the teacher, school, possibly
the district, may all be held responsible for your child’s harm. Let’s talk about two
different situations. First, what happens if another student injures your child, and
second, what occurs if an employee of the school causes the harm? Now if another student
causes injury, the school most likely will be found liable if it was grossly negligent
in its supervision of your child or the aggressor. For example, the teacher leaves a class unsupervised
to take a personal phone call, and while alone, a student attacks your child, the teacher
and school may be found grossly negligent. Sadly, children often suffer harm not only
at the hands of fellow students, but also their teachers. When such instances occur,
the school and the district must answer for the indefensible acts of their employee. Childhood
injuries often result in mental anguish, embarrassment, lost enjoyment of life, and not to mention,
pain. If your child has been harmed at school, you’re not alone. Call me today and find out
how we can help. I’d be honored to hear from you and look forward to being of service.
