Substandard School Safety and Security

The law requires that children of a certain age must be enrolled in and attend school. This requirement is something of a mixed blessing for most parents. On the one hand, it grants them significant financial relief if they have been utilizing a daycare facility, which may cost up to $1,000 per month for one child. On the other hand, it requires that they entrust the care of their precious child to another person, and for a stay-at-home mom or dad, it means the sudden loss of treasured time together throughout the day. Parents should be able to take that step with the comfort of knowing that their children will be in good hands, yet substandard school safety and security often result in injuries.

If your child has been hurt at school or during his or her engagement in school-related activities, then it might be appropriate for you to consider filing a civil lawsuit.

Sources of Safety Risks in the School Environment

Parents’ concerns over their child’s safety are supposed to be lessened by the knowledge that the personnel who are going to be responsible for supervision are trained professionals who have attained the appropriate clearances and licensure. Unfortunately, that trust is sometimes violated, and serious physical or emotional injuries may occur as a consequence. Some sources of safety risks in the school environment are:

  • Sports injuries
  • Inadequate security procedures or staffing
  • Lack of supervisions by teachers, coaches, or other personnel
  • Negligent hiring of employees unfit for the requirements of their job
  • Failure to intervene in physical altercations or when emotional abuse is observed
