Did you know that when your child is in school, the law says that the staff of the school is supposed to act as if they were the parents of your child? In one case, there were many children in the school cafeteria throwing food at each other. Fifteen minutes after this began, my client slipped on some of the food which was on the floor of the cafeteria.
I claimed that there were not enough teachers in the cafeteria to supervise all of the children there, thereby allowing the children to throw food. I was able to achieve a settlement from the Board of Education because they were afraid of going to trial knowing that a jury would have found a case against them.
Therefore, if your child has been injured in school, consult with a personal injury attorney who will meet with you without charge to see if you have a good case or not. And remember, you don’t have to pay the attorney until the case is ended in your favor.
