Our 13 yr old mentally disabled son was given a natural sedative by his teachers aid. Do we have a case against the school?

Asked over 1 year ago - Blaine, WA

The school put the aid on admit. leave, and hire a third party investigator. She was told to not contact our soon at all, but came by our house and talk to our son while we were at work to find out how he was doing. Should we get a lawyer. We don't want her to ever work with kids again.This has really upset our son and my husband and I. The school put our son in harms way.
