I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I SUBMIT MY FORM?

Atlanta School Accident Lawyer
for Children Injured at School

Our children spend a significant amount of time at school.

And while teachers and administrators do an admirable job of caring for our children’s well-being, accidents still happen. The question is whether or not those accidents were preventable. If your child has suffered a serious injury at school, an Atlanta school accident lawyer can help you pursue a claim so that you can focus on your child’s recovery. Throughout the course of the day, your child is exposed to a number of hazards, including inadequate supervision, unsafe property conditions, negligent behavior, and unsanitary conditions.

Common School Accidents

Accidents happen at school more often than many people realize. An experienced Atlanta school accident lawyer can help you if your child has been injured in one of the following types of school accidents: 

  • School bus accidents
  • Playground injuries
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Bullying and physical assaults
  • Sports injuries 
  • Food poisoning

Anyone of these accidents can result in serious injury. If your child was involved in an accident that arose from the school’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. 

About School Bus Accidents

School bus accidents can be caused by other drivers, but can also result from negligence on behalf of the school. Many school bus accidents are the result of the following: 

  • Negligent driving by the bus driver
  • Inadequate driver training
  • Insufficient driver supervision
  • Failure to properly maintain the bus

The school system has an obligation to ensure that their drivers are appropriately qualified, adequately supervised and that the buses are in good working condition. If your child is injured in a school bus accident, the school system may be held liable and an Atlanta school accident lawyer can help.

Is There Anything I Can Do For My Child Who Is Being Bullied In School?

Our Atlanta school accident lawyer team takes bullying and assault on children seriously. While the state education system is catching up and beginning to understand and take action to prevent these occurrences, the sad reality is bullying and assault in schools remain more common than it should in elementary, middle, and high schools throughout Georgia. In addition to the physical harm suffered, bullying and assaults can cause serious mental and emotional trauma including: 

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Bullying and other forms of physical violence can make it difficult for your child to learn and result in loss of sleep and appetite – all things that are critical to the growth and development of your child. 

Again, your child’s school has an obligation to provide a safe environment for your child. If they have not failed to address bullying or protect against other forms of violence, they may be held liable for the harm to your child. 

Atlanta School Accident Lawyer Representing Children in Sports Injuries

Sports injuries are another common form of school accidents. While almost every sport carries an inherent risk of injury, some risks can be managed. Coaches and athletic directors are responsible for ensuring that safety protocols are followed, equipment is in good repair, and the players receive adequate instruction and supervision. When the school fails to do these things, they may be held liable for your child’s injuries

What to Do If Your Child Got Food Poisoning in the School Cafeteria

Another source of potential illness or injury can arise when school cafeterias fail to ensure that they are following food safety guidelines. Unsafe food handling can result in serious illness stemming from food poisoning or allergic reactions. If your child has food poisoning as a result of eating school cafeteria food, contact an Atlanta school accident lawyer after you’ve received medical attention for your child.

Recover Compensation for Child Accidents with an Atlanta School Accident Lawyer

If your child was injured at school, you may be entitled to compensation for the following: 

  • Your medical expenses
  • In-home care and tutoring if your child is unable to attend school
  • Your child’s pain and suffering
  • Lost opportunities such as lost scholarships due to sports injuries
  • Any other expenses incurred as a result of your child’s injury

An experienced Atlanta school accident lawyer will be able to evaluate your claim and provide a firm estimate of what it may be worth.
