The Parent's Guide to School Liability in New York

Jonathan Cooper
Employment Litigation and School Negligence Lawyer

New York has a significant number of important rules as to when, and under what circumstances, schools and municipalities can be held liable for accidents that happen to the children and students in their charge at their schools and camps.

These rules are particularly important for parents who are looking to prevent incidents from becoming an ongoing, or bigger, problem (such as in the case of bullying), or if they are considering bringing a lawsuit over the harm that the child has already sustained. 

In some instances, the failure to know these rules can ruin an otherwise viable claim before it even gets filed.

In order to lay out some of the issues, and challenges, faced by parents who are confronted with these problems, I recently published this book, When Schools Fail to Protect Our Kids: A Parent’s Guide to School & Daycare Negligence Cases in New York.

In this book, I’ve tried to provide, in easy to understand, non-legalese, the answers to the questions that you should be asking regarding school liability for harm that befalls our children. And, in this way, you will have at your fingertips lots of good information – even before you contact a lawyer who has expertise in this area.

Here are just some the questions that, at the very least, you should be asking before taking any action – or any further action – regarding your child’s school negligence matter:

  • 5 Ways to Protect Your Child Against Bullying

  • 7 Sure-Fire Ways to Ruin Your School Negligence Case

  • When Play at Your Own Risk Won’t Bar Your Child’s Claim
