School Liability

Schools owe a duty to their students to provide premises that are reasonably safe. To ensure school facilities remain safe, the school is required to inspect and maintain the premises. Schools are also required to deliver a reasonable and effective system of supervision of students which minimizes the risk of students being injured in falls, assaults, accidents and by each other. This applies to students within the school’s area of responsibility regardless of whether the injury is sustained in the playground, classroom, science lab, gym class or hallway, before or after school, during recess or at lunch time.

If your child was injured at a New York school due to the school’s failure to supervise, negligent supervision, bullying or unsafe facilities and equipment, you may be entitled to recover compensation for the pain and suffering, medical expenses and other losses caused as a result of the school’s negligence.
