When Is a School Liable for Injuries?
Although school is designed to be a safe environment—and schools must take reasonable steps to ensure that it remains that way for its students and staff—that does not mean that a school is liable for all injuries that occur there. For example, if a child is running and trips, the school may not be liable for their injuries. For the school to be held liable, it must be proven that they did something wrong or failed to do something necessary.
Examples of instances where a school may be held liable:
- Teachers who knew about bullying but did not intervene.
- Schools who failed to have proper evacuation plans in place.
- Students who were injured when there was a lack of supervision.
- Students who did not receive the medication they needed.
- Students who were injured due to dangerous premises.
- Students who suffered foodborne illnesses from school-provided food.
- Students who were injured during a bus accident.
