School Violence

Schools have an obligation to protect their students and provide a safe and productive learning environment. However, this does not always happen and dangerous situations may result. In addition to bullying, kids today are often subject to other types of violence at school, such as assaults and shootings. When this happens, a school may be liable for the injuries suffered by the victims. Our firm is skilled at gathering all of the necessary documentation from the school and other parties in order to show that the school is responsible for creating the situation that led to the violence and resulting injuries.

Wrongful Death

Unfortunately in many school violence cases, children are killed by other children. While this is a tragic situation, it is important that the parents of the responsible children, the school and any other negligent parties be held accountable for their actions or inaction. We strive to help clients seek legal amends and financial compensation while they attempt to deal with their grief over the loss.
