Responsibilities of Schools

Breaking down every step of the Premises Liability Process

If a student was attacked at school, can the school be responsible?

Schools have a duty to provide a safe environment for students. If a student is attacked at school, the school may be liable for damages if the student can prove that the attack was the result of negligence and not intentional. In order for a school to be held liable for damages, they must have had knowledge of the attack and failed to take any steps to prevent it. Alternatively, the school must have had a duty to protect the student and failed to do so.

Schools should take preventative measures in order to protect their students from attacks as they are responsible for providing a safe environment for their students.

Filing a premises liability lawsuit

The DOJ reported that approximately 4 billion dollars are awarded to compensate premises liability injury victims each year. The most common types of premises liability lawsuits are those filed on behalf of children, trespassers, and visitors. If a child is injured on someone else’s property, for example, the owner may be sued for failing to provide safe conditions for children. If a person is injured on someone else’s property and they are not a trespasser, the owner may be sued for failing to provide adequate warning of dangerous conditions. If someone is injured on someone else’s property and they are a trespasser, the owner may be sued for failing to provide adequate warning of dangerous conditions.
