Sorry to hear what happened to your daughter. If your daughter only sprained her ankle with little medical treatment then the time and expense of a lawsuit would likely not be justified. Keep in mind that if the fall occurred on the sidewalk in front of the school, you would need to demonstrate that the City of New York had prior written notice of the dangerous condition. You would also need to file a Notice of Claim within 90 days of the incident with the City of New York and the Department of Education.
