For the majority of the average week, children under the age of 18 are not in the care of their parents, but rather are entrusted to the supervision of district personnel. During the hiring process, the school district has an obligation to ascertain whether applicants for these positions are properly trained and educated for the responsibilities that they will hold. These individuals are also required to submit to background checks which to determine whether they may pose a threat to the welfare of the children.
Unfortunately, lapses in the system may lead to the hiring of an unqualified person or a momentary failure in the execution of one’s duties might lead to the preventable injury of your child. If your child has been hurt at school then it may be appropriate to consider filing a civil lawsuit seeking financial compensation.

GROUNDS FOR LEGAL ACTION
Regardless of a school employee’s official job description, he or she has a fundamental responsibility to protect the safety and welfare of students against unnecessary dangers. Some instances where legal action may be necessary to address a failure on this front include the following:
- Inadequate maintenance leading to slip and fall or other premises-related accidents
- Lack of supervision
- Failure to intervene in physical altercations among students
- Inadequate security staffing or procedures
- Bus accidents
- Negligent hiring
- Sports injuries caused by poor facilities or dangerously aggressive coaching/practicing
No child should be injured by the carelessness of a teacher or other professional. When such negligence occurs, parents have the right to seek legal action on behalf of their children.
