Experienced Brooklyn Lawyer for Injured Children
Under New York law, schools and day care centers stand in loco parentis, meaning that when children are put in their care, they take on the responsibilities of a parent. This is a very strong legal standard, designed to make sure these institutions take care of vulnerable children.
I am Daniel A. Kalish, an experienced Bronx, Brooklyn and Westchester County personal injury attorney representing children who have been injured due to negligent supervision and security at schools and day cares. If your child has been injured, contact me today for a free consultation.
Seeking Compensation From Negligent Schools and Centers
When you send your child to a school or day care center, you have a right to expect that he or she will be taken care of. Unfortunately, some of these facilities neglect their responsibilities, often due to understaffing and poor policy choices. The following are some major examples:
- Failure to deal with children who bully and assault others
- Defects in stairs, railings, balconies and ceilings
- Inadequate security to keep out unauthorized people
- Hiring and retention of employees with backgrounds of sexual or child abuse
Schools and day care centers have a responsibility to provide ongoing training and supervision to their employees and can be held accountable when those employees negligently harm students in any way. I have the experience to pursue abuse and negligence claims against schools and day cares.
