Your children are your pride and joy, so when they’re hurt at school, you want to make sure they get the medical attention they need. But when it comes time to pay the medical bills, how do you determine whether the school should be responsible for covering them? The Heslin Law Firm will handle this matter for you.
If you believe that the school is responsible for your child’s injury, you should consult with Mr. Gary P. Heslin, our experienced Philadelphia school injury attorney. In order to make a case against the school, you’ll need to prove that an act of negligence on their part led to your child’s incident. Mr. Heslin can help you do so.
To evaluate your case, he will sit down with you to pinpoint the cause of the accident. In deciding whether or not a lawsuit can be filed, he’ll consider the cause of the injury and how the injury occurred. If the injury was foreseeable and thus could have been prevented, the school may be held liable. Examples of foreseeable events include a child:
- Falling off of a piece of playground equipment
- Bumping or tripping over something
- Getting sick or being injured due to unsanitary conditions
- Being bullied by one or more other students
In the case of bullying, the parents of the culprits may also be held partially responsible for any harm done to your son or daughter.
