School Failure to Supervise Attorneys

Parents ought to be able to trust the teachers who they leave their children with at school. Teachers are expected to adequately supervise all student activities and to ensure the safety of their students at all times. Despite these expectations, children are often injured because of a teacher’s failure to supervise student activity. Depending upon the nature and the severity of the harm suffered by a child, he or she may require medical attention, physical therapy, or other costly care.

If your son or daughter has been hurt at school because of a failure of school personnel or designated volunteers to devote their attention to students’ actions and behaviors, a civil lawsuit might be appropriate. To discuss your case with a compassionate and knowledgeable legal representative, contact the Denver school and playground injuries attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770.

Proving a Case

While a school may scurry to offer its sincerest apologies and promises that such an incident will not occur again, this does little to address your child’s needs. A legal action might gain you financial compensation to cover expenses related to your son or daughter’s injuries. To proceed with a lawsuit in this matter, your case must establish the following elements of a tort:

  • The existence of a standard of duty. A teacher has a specific duty to protect the children under his care.
  • The failure to uphold that duty, in this case represented by the provision of inadequate supervision.
  • An injury.
  • Proof that the injury was caused by the breached standard of duty.

We know how important it is for victims to secure the full and fair compensation they need following a serious accident, and that is why we take a hands-on, personalized approach to every case we handle.
