Crockett, TX |

My son was injured twice in the boys restroom. The first incident a student pushed my son head into the urinal and left his head red and he stated that it hurt. The second incident was cause in the boys restroom where a 4th grade was in the bathroom with my son who is a 3rd grader and he picked up my son and slammed him to the floor causing a swollen lump the size of a quarter on his left side of his head. I took him to the ER to get documentation.

    You really need to inform the school of these incidents if you have not done so already. Most government services are immune from suit so you may need to go after the other student's parents, given they are aware of their child's dangerous propensities. In addition to requesting administrative disciple of the students consult with a local attorney to determine your next step in filing suit and identifying the possible defendants. Good luck, I'm sorry your son experienced this.

  4. I agree with the other commentators. It is always a good idea to document incidents, facts, witnesses and even the state of mind of your son in writing in real time. You might encourage your son to keep a daily journal of entries related to the incident or any of the physical or emotional difficulties he experiences as a result of the experience. It may be considered evidence of present recollection recorded if done in real time. There may be numerous potential defendants that can be named depending upon what a more thorough investigation of the incident finds. Start internally with the principal and the school board but move quickly

  5. tricky claim on liability against the school. however, i would contact an
    attorney in Texas who handles such claims.
