Most government facilities enjoy immunity from suit and a short statute of limitations. You should discuss the specifics of your case with a local personal injury attorney immediately.

Perhaps, but you would want to retain a lawyer in your state to investigate whether there was negligence and whether you can get around the school immunity statutes most states have.

Negligence would have to be proven, and any school immunity statute problem would need to be overcome, thus, call a personal injury lawyer in your state asap. Good luck.

Depends. Note if its a private or charter school these immunities probably won't apply. The claim viability is going to be largely fact dependent. Your best bet is to contact an attorney to discuss.

Good luck.
