School Liability in California
In California, claims against government entities must be handled according to very specific rules. Generally, the claim will need to be presented within six months, so it is critical that you act as soon as possible or risk being unable to take your case to court. Hiring an attorney who is experienced in handling such matters is critical since the claims process will require a thorough analysis of school regulations and standards.
There is a vast range of injuries for which California School Districts can be held liable. This includes:
- Teacher negligence
- Inadequate supervision
- Premises liability
- Field trip accidents
- Playground accidents
- School bus accidents
- Cross-walk accidents
These are just a handful of the types of injury-causing accidents that a school district can be held liable for. In the state of California, there are nearly 1,000 different school districts, which are each responsible for hundreds or thousands of students on a daily basis. The Los Angeles Unified School District is, unsurprisingly, the largest in the state with over 600,000 students in over 900 different schools and about 200 charter schools.
School District Negligence
School districts and their employees have a legal duty of care to protect all students from harm while they are in school, participating in school-sponsored activities, or while they are being transported by the district. Any injuries that occur as a result of negligence, whether it was caused by a faculty member, other school employees, or an unsafe environment, the school district can be held accountable.
