Child Hurt At School? We Can Help

Children in New York State spend an average of 32.5 hours in school each week. When a child leaves home each day, parents assume that their child will be cared for, after all school is supposed to be a safe environment for your child. Unfortunately, sometimes it’s not. Each year, the safety of about 4 million children is compromised while attending school. If your child has been hurt while at school, we can help. From the moment you step into our office, everyone on our staff will treat you and your child with compassion as we listen to your story.

School Should Be A Safe Place

While the majority of those who choose to work within the school system are responsible and caring adults with the best of intentions, abuse and accidents do still occur.  Bullying is not addressed, students trip and fall on unmaintained property and harassment is swept under the carpet. Sobo & Sobo represents children and teenagers who have been injured while at school in a variety of types of incidents including:

  • Bullying
  • Harassment
  • School bus accidents
  • Sports related injuries
  • Physical education related injuries
  • Classroom incidents

Some incidents happen as a result of the negligence of a supervisor, faculty member or perhaps even the school district itself.  If your child’s school, district or staff failed to protect them from harm, you may have a case. The lawyers at Sobo & Sobo are passionate about helping people and are ready to assist your family in determining if you have a case. Our initial consultation is always free so you have nothing to lose by making some time to have a conversation about your child’s situation.
