School Injury Attorney in Palm Springs
Palm Springs Child Injuries Lawyer
It is safe to say that our children spend the majority of their day at their pre-school or elementary school. It is also safe to say that there is nothing more important to us than the safety of our children. When children go off to school for the day, parents typically have faith that their children will be well cared for and looked after while they are there. Parents search for that peace of mind knowing that there kids are learning in a safe and child friendly environment. However, that is unfortunately not always the case in every school. Sometimes teachers, school workers and play yard staff are negligent or abusive, which could easily lead to child injuries.
Here at Barry Regar APLC we want to help you keep your children safe by holding these negligent schools accountable for their actions. This can hopefully encourage other schools across America to focus more on child safety. Our Palm Springs personal injury attorney is shocked by the child injury statistics that occur in schools today. Did you know that approximately 4 million children suffer injuries at their school every year? If your child was one of those 4 million, then please do not hesitate to contact our firm. We can guide you through every stage of your case and relentlessly pursue justice on your child's behalf.
Types of School Injury Claims
Within a school environment, there are many different ways that a child could sustain a serious injury. Looking at school injury statistics in elementary school, one study found that 80% of the students went to see the school nurse at least once in a given year. The most common school injuries that are reported include:
- Playground Injuries
- Injuries on the School Bus
- Injuries from Physical Education Class
- Injuries from Sexual Abuse
- Injuries as a Result of Teacher Negligence
- Injuries as a Result of School District Negligence

If your child was injured at school due to legal negligence such as faulty school equipment, lack of supervision or faculty abuse, then consult with a Palm Springs school injury attorney without delay.
