Focused, Skillful Representation For School Injury Victims

Serious injuries to school-age children are heart-wrenching, and their impacts on the victim and family are usually severe and long-lasting. If your son or daughter was injured at school or while participating in a school-sponsored activity, you are absolutely justified in questioning whether inadequate supervision or some other form of negligence allowed the accident to happen.

Some examples of school accidents that Goidel & Siegel can handle:

  • Negligent supervision
  • Assaults
  • Fights
  • Gym accidents
  • School trip accidents
  • School bus accidents
  • Slip, trip, and fall accidents
  • Sports accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents

Did The Lack Of Sufficient Adult Supervision Cause Your Child's Injuries?

At Goidel & Siegel LLP, we are intensely dedicated, trial-proven personal injury lawyers with extensive school accident and sports accident case experience. Our successes for clients in these complex areas of law include:

  • Obtaining a $500,000 settlement from the New York Board of Education for an elementary school student who ran into the street through an unattended gate and was struck by a hit-and-run driver
  • Recovering $325,000 for a high-school student who suffered severe facial injuries while playing tag — with negligent supervision — on a school-sponsored trip to a rural camp

A few of the many possible scenarios that may support a lawsuit against a public school district, private school administration or another liable party are:

  • Any egregious failure to provide adult supervision of children on school property (during recess or a study break, for example), or while on a school-sponsored trip
  • Segregation of children with discipline problems in a manner that enables dangerous behavior or a physical assault

You can count on our attorneys to take your concerns seriously and consider every legal argument that could produce financial compensation for you. In addition to negligent supervision, school accident and injury claims may also call for in-depth knowledge of New York premises liability laws.
