Injury Claims Against The New York Department Of Education

When we send our kids to school, we have every right to expect they will be in a reasonably safe environment, with adequate security measures and professionals who will not abuse their positions as educators and administrators. However, instances of injuries, accidents and abuse are commonplace in the schools, especially in the New York area. If your child has been injured or abused while at school, work with an experienced lawyer who can protect your rights and help your family obtain full compensation for your losses.

At Restivo & Murphy LLP, in Garden City, our attorneys have more than 40 years of combined legal experience representing clients in Department of Education claims and other injury claims against municipal entities. We travel anywhere throughout the five boroughs of New York City as well as Long Island, Nassau and Suffolk counties.

Types Of Claims Against The School System

Our lawyers represent clients in claims involving:

  • Accidents and injuries: Schools are dangerous places for kids. Whether your child has been hurt by another student, by a teacher or by a dangerous condition on school property, our lawyers can protect your family's interests.
  • Abuse: Our lawyers handle claims involving physical, emotional and sexual abuse in the schools. These claims can involve teachers, administrators, faculty and other students.
