Was Your Child Attacked or Injured in a West Virginia School?
Few things tear at our hearts more than the injury, abuse, or death of a child. Look into the eyes of those who have lost a child through any tragic occurrence and you will know, beyond all doubt, that they have lost something precious. Too often, families and communities suffer from child abuse in schools. If your child is a victim of bullying, abuse, or any other type of violence, turn to Troy Law Firm, PLLC for help from a Charleston injury lawyer.
Holding Schools Responsible for Student Injuries
Any preventable child injury is a tragedy. At Troy Law Firm, PLLC, a Charleston school injury attorney has more than 20 years of experience handling abuse, neglect, and personal injury cases for families and individuals. We will fight tenaciously to help ensure that your child receives both justice and the maximum benefit of any recovery against the wrongdoer.
School Injury Liability & Causes
Cases of school violence and abuse can result from:
- Lack of supervision: We rely on teachers to pay close attention to children who are in their care to ensure that nothing gets out of hand. Failure to properly supervise children can lead to fights, injuries, bullying, and other forms of violence and abuse. It is not uncommon for a child to complain about threats of violence or bullying and the warnings fall on deaf ears. Let me hold those responsible for their negligence.
- Teacher abuse: Whether these actions center on physical violence or sexual abuse, it is likely that your child will suffer serious trauma for years to come. I will fight to hold the teacher accountable for his or her actions. You need an experienced Charleston school litigation attorney on your side to ensure that your child receives justice.
Additionally, children can be injured before, during, or after a bus ride. If your child was injured due to the negligence of a crossing guard or bus driver, I encourage you to call or email my firm as soon as possible and learn about your options. We can review your case to help you determine if you have grounds to pursue a lawsuit against the school or another party.
