Phoenix School Injury Lawyer
Parents should reasonably expect that their child is safe and protected while at school. The law protects this expectation, as schools become a child’s guardian during school hours. As a guardian, schools are bound to protect students from foreseeable harm. Failure to supervise students can leave schools open to liability for injuries that students sustain while on campus.
Students who are not adequately supervised while at school are susceptible to a range of injuries. It is foreseeable that students without supervision could sustain injuries on the playground, with unsafe equipment, or even from altercations with other students. When school negligence is to blame for a student’s injury, the school should be held responsible. Not only is it fair to compensate the student for the injuries that should have been prevented, but taking action against negligent schools will also help to ensure a safer environment for future students.
Common school injuries include bus accidents, sports injuries, playground injuries, sexual assaults, shaken baby syndrome, abusive head trauma, burns, cuts, eye injuries, broken bones, head injuries, brain injuries and brain damage from falls. Also, school violence can result in severe injury, sexual assault or death.

What is School Negligence?
Most parents drop their children off at school early in the morning and don’t pick them up until late in the afternoon. Those same parents drop their kids off with the faith that they will be safe and protected for 6-7 hours every day, and even longer if their children participate in after-school activities. This faith is not unfounded; it is the school’s legal responsibility to keep all children in their care safe from harm, and failure to do so is considered negligent supervision.
Even though schools are required to properly supervise all students, devastating accidents continue to happen at schools around the country. 4 million school children are injured while at school every year. School children of all ages are made victims of avoidable injuries, lost innocence, and preventable attacks every day. When the negligent supervision of school districts, and their staff results in attacks, injury, or death, children have legal rights.
