Tacoma, Washington is situated along the saltwater banks of the Puget Sound and is known for amazing glass exhibits, art, food, water activities, and the great outdoors. Tacoma is a natural wonderland surrounded by mountains, bays, oceans, parks, trails, wildlife, and more. Any trip to Tacoma would not be complete without a trip to Mt. Rainier State Park, located about 50 miles northwest of Tacoma.
The movies would lead you to believe that nothing bad can happen in such a beautiful place, and perhaps we would all love to believe these storylines. However, life is not make-believe, and we all know that bad things happen to good people, even in beautiful places like Tacoma, Washington. Tacoma is the third-largest city in Washington and sees its fair share of tragic circumstances. Every day Tacoma citizens are hurt in accidents, some of their injuries are catastrophic. We all live with the reality of this every day. We know that accidents and injury can occur at any time. These accidents involve broken bones, hips, spines, head and neck injuries, disability, and sometimes even death.
At school, our children are supposed to be safe and secure. We entrust the school district to protect our children while they are out of our control. But schools are not accident-free. School-age children get in accidents on school property all the time. Yet parents feel helpless. What happens If your child gets hurt on school property, and it is the school’s fault that your child was hurt?
Schools are big businesses, almost like large corporations, and they are represented by the best big insurance defense law firms. Your school may be responsible if your child’s accident resulted from a foreseeable, preventable, and negligent act by the school or the school district.
Remember, your personal injury lawsuit against your school is not against the school, but the large insurance companies defending the school.
What Are Common School Accident Injuries?
During our investigation of your school accident injury, our attorneys may find additional parties that may be liable, and sometimes, we can file a claim against more than the school itself, such as:
- Playground or playground equipment manufacturers, and bus manufacturers.
- Subcontractors performing work at the school or who failed to perform adequate safety measures at your child’s school.
- Parents of another child who may have hurt your child. Most people do not realize it, but parents are held legally responsible for the negligent acts of their children often.
Factors School Injury Lawyers Consider When Taking A Case
School districts will hire the best and biggest law firms to protect them from justified litigation against the school district. Luckily, our firm is one of the largest and most prosperous personal injury law firms in Tacoma, Washington. Our attorneys will look to various factors when deciding on whether to take a case against a Tacoma school district. These may include:
- Did the child receive proper instruction, use, and safety precautions before using a dangerous object, such as a bat?
- Are your children special needs and was the Tacoma school district aware of the child’s special needs?
- Did the school allow a dangerous bully to remain on campus who hurt your child?
- Was the playground equipment manufactured correctly, without defect, and was it installed properly? Where the children taught how to play safely on the playground equipment at the school?
- Could your child’s injury have been reasonably prevented by the school teachers or administrators?
- Was there some structural damage to the property or defective maintenance technique that caused your child’s injury?
- Did anyone know, or should have known about a possible dangerous condition that led to your child’s injury at school?
- What was the dangerous event your child attended?
- Did some dangerous condition exist at the time and lead to your child’s injury at school, or on a fieldtrip?
- Was an attractive nuisance that enticed your child causing an injury?
- Was the sidewalk at school defective?
- Was a stairway at school properly maintained?
- Did the school cafeteria properly handle the food and provide nutritional and allergen facts to the students?
