Lawsuits Against Arizona Public Schools

When our children are dropped off at school we expect that they will return safely at the end of the school day. We have an expectation that those employed at the school will exercise reasonable caution in keeping our children away from harm. When school officials fail to exercise reasonable caution and allow children to engage in activities likely to result in injury, the school can be liable. In Arizona, public schools must receive a notice of claim prior to a claimant bringing certain claims against the school.

A notice of claim allows the school to perform its own investigation into the allegations and make efforts to settle the claims prior to the claims being brought in a lawsuit. All government entities are entitled to such notice prior to having certain claims brought against them. The content of a notice of claim is important. An Arizona injury lawyer can ensure that the content is sufficient.
