New York City School Liability Attorney
Parents trust school administrators and day care providers to provide a safe and nurturing environment for their children. Unfortunately, budget cuts have caused schools to operate with fewer resources, larger classroom sizes, and sometimes in buildings that haven’t been properly maintained. Day cares can also be run thinly without enough day care providers or qualified staff members. If your child was put at risk because of a day care providers’ or school administrators’ negligent actions, obtain experienced legal counsel.

Handling School-Related Accident Claims in NYC
Filing school injury claims can be incredibly complicated. We consult with qualified experts, including former school administrators, who are invaluable in helping us prosecute these claims. Our legal team has the skills and legal resources needed to hold school administrators and other negligent parties responsible for:
- Serious accidents caused by defective playground equipment
- Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents caused by unsafe or dangerous premises
- Pedestrian accidents caused by improper signage, poor lighting, and absent crosswalks in front of schools
- Sports injuries related to lack of supervision
- Student and teacher assaults
- Assaults, bullying or sexual abuse due to negligent security or school administrators failing to address concerns
School administrators are responsible to hire enough qualified teachers. When school administrators fail to properly train new teachers, hire enough teachers, or address safety concerns, they can be held accountable for accidents related to their negligent actions. Our focus on results often prompts insurance adjusters to make large settlement offers and avoid going up against us in trial.
