Manhattan School Accident Lawyers
Causes of School Accidents
Although most parents assume that the schools where they take their children every day are safe, sadly, this is not always the case. Every day thousands of children are injured and even killed in schools. Most injuries are a result of play or physical activities that are unsupervised or too rough for a school setting. There are also more serious injuries, such as assaults, sexual molestations, injuries caused by hazardous school premises, and even shootings. In addition to injuries, there are now many cases of bullying and harassment, inflicting emotional turmoil upon children and such behavior disregarded by school authorities.
