Causes of School Injuries

Unless you home school your child, you must send them away to school, so you should be able to trust that your children are safe there. Unfortunately for the peace of mind of many Lexington area parents, sometimes the safety of children in schools is overlooked. Although uncommon, school injuries still happen, and such injuries often leave parents with emotional and financial burdens.

In the event that your child’s injury was the result of a negligence on behalf of the school or a school staff member, the attorneys of Wilson & McQueen, PLLC would like you to know that you have legal options that you may be able to pursue.

Common Causes of School-Related Injuries

There are many different ways that a child could be injured at or near school, though some of them are more commonly brought into court than others. For instance, some of the more common causes of school injuries involve the following:

  • Teacher Negligence
  • School District Negligence
  • Failure to Supervise
  • Sports Injuries
  • Sexual Assault

Any of these actions (or the failure to act, in cases of negligence) could easily lead to a school injury. Such injuries, as the attorneys of Wilson & McQueen, PLLC know, have the potential to be physically, as well as emotionally damaging for a young person such as your child.
