Legal Assistance for School Zone Accident Cases in San Jose

When you send your child to school, you are entrusting his or her safety and well-being to the hands of teachers, educators, and other school officials. Schools have a duty to act reasonably to protect the children in their care. Children should be properly supervised, and the proper safety measures should be followed while they are on playgrounds, on school buses, in school crosswalks, or within school buildings. Any locations within school grounds or school property or activities under the supervision of school personnel outside of the school grounds are considered parts of a school zone. If your child was injured or killed within one of these areas, you may have a potential premises liability lawsuit against the school district.

When school districts do not properly staff their schools; fail to perform background checks when hiring personnel; or do not have the proper rules, regulations, and safeguards in place to protect children, serious accidents and injuries can result.

We can seek compensation for all types of school-related accidents and injuries, including:

Attorney John Garvey can help demonstrate that a school or other local government agencies were responsible for your child's injuries. For example, he may gather evidence to show that children were not properly supervised while engaging in school activities, that a school's gym equipment had not been properly maintained, or that a school failed to perform background checks before hiring an employee with a criminal history.
