The sub left a bruise on my daughters arm and verbal attacked her a. Purple days before the incident.
The first step toward filing a lawsuit is to contact an attorney. A personal injury attorney might agree to take your case on a contingency basis, meaning you would not have to pay up front. The attorney could then examine your evidence and tell you if there is enough to proceed with a lawsuit.
If you have not done so already, you might consider discussing the incident with the principal and asking for a plan to keep your daughter safe at school.
Good luck to you.
