For parents in Arizona, the safety and well-being of their children are among their chief concerns. Parents trust schools to provide a secure environment where their children can learn, grow, and thrive. Unfortunately, accidents occur all too frequently, including those when one child injures another. As a parent, you may have questions about legal recourse and whether you can sue the school for the harm your child suffered. Depending on your case’s unique circumstances, you may have grounds to hold the school liable for their negligence.

When we take your case, you can trust us to advocate aggressively for your best interests throughout the legal process.
When Can a School Be Held Liable For a Child’s Injuries in Arizona?
Schools in Arizona owe their students a duty of care to provide a safe and comfortable learning environment. This duty includes supervising children to avoid fights and other dangerous incidents. If a school and its staff fail to watch the children under their care or know your child was a target of bullying and fail to take action, they may be found negligent through a personal injury claim.
Additionally, the school, district, and staff member may be liable for your child’s injuries in the following situations:
- Injuries caused by another student on school grounds, including playgrounds, classrooms, and gyms
- Injuries caused by another student on a school bus
- Intentional acts of violence
- Sexual assault
- Injuries caused by other students on field trips or other school-sanctioned travel
When you partner with a talented attorney from Feller & Wendt, we will thoroughly investigate every aspect of your case to understand the incident and how your child’s injuries occurred. We will evaluate the details to determine your legal options and who can be held liable for your child’s losses.
Damages You May Be Eligible to Collect Through a School Injury Claim
Your child’s safety, health, and happiness are your top priorities as a parent. No matter how much you try to keep them safe, they may still sustain injuries at the hands of another student. While your child contends with their recovery, many families incur expensive medical bills and other costs associated with their treatment. If your child was injured at school, you deserve compensation for the losses your child and your family have suffered. Fortunately, a skilled attorney can help you pursue the following damages through a personal injury claim:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Future earning potential
- Significant disfigurement or disability
- Loss of enjoyment in life
- Emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
Our attorneys understand the scope of your child’s injuries may be largely unknown until they reach adulthood. The attorneys at Feller & Wendt are committed to considering your child’s current and future needs when determining the total value of your claim.
