Little Rock School Injury Lawyer
Parents trust schools and day care providers to care for and protect children while they are working. Unfortunately, the safety of school children is not always assured. The very people we entrust our children to are sometimes the ones responsible for harming them. While the majority of school workers are caring professionals, accidents and abuse do happen in classrooms and schoolyards across the country every day.
Schools must do everything that is reasonable to protect the children in their care. When schools fail to act reasonably, when school districts violate the law and when their negligence causes injury, attacks or death, children have legal rights. Every year about 4 million children and adolescents are injured while at school. If your child has been among them, contact the Law Offices of Thomas G. Buchanan at 501-296-9820 for a free legal consultation.
The school’s responsibility for your child extends into after school and extracurricular activities such as clubs and sports. Often times, schools will ask you to sign waivers or releases when your child participates in any physical activity such as football or other sports. If your child is injured while participating in these activities, it is important for you to make us aware of waivers or other documents that you may have signed as these can affect the liability of school. Even if you have signed a waiver, you should consult an attorney familiar with school injuries as the waiver may be defective or other avenues for recovery may be available.
