Department of Education Injury Attorneys in New York
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, 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 5 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.
- Inadequate security: Almost any kind of injury or abuse can be avoided with adequate security, supervision, and basic safety precautions. We bring claims of inadequate security and unsafe conditions against the Department of Education.
Our lawyers have experience and knowledge regarding the complex processes involved with legal claims against municipalities. We will fight to obtain the best compensation award possible for you.
