School Liability

Injuries at School in Seattle, Washington Area

When you send your child off to school, you usually assume that he or she will be safe and properly supervised throughout the day. You have a right to make this assumption, as schools are generally seen to act in loco parentis and assume the responsibilities and duties of a parent.

Because of this legal doctrine, there is usually a right to recovery if the child is injured while under the supervision of the school. If your child has been hurt, consult with a lawyer knowledgeable about school law and how it applies in your case.

Handling all types of school liability cases

In these and in all cases, our attorneys are dedicated advocates for kids who were injured because of the failure of the schools to provide the level of care and supervision required.
