Michigan School Accidents and Injuries Facts

Dedicated to Serving You

As parents, we want to feel a sense of security when our children are in the hands of teachers and school administrators.  However, at every level of our educational institutions, perils exist that place our children in harm’s way. Public school officials, including teachers, are generally immune from liability, making it difficult to recover compensation when an injury occurs. Fortunately, exceptions to governmental immunity exist. The recognized exceptions under Michigan law include, (1) gross negligence, (2) negligent operation of a motor vehicle, (3) building defects, and (4) intentional acts.  

Children are susceptible to a variety of injuries at school. Shop class machinery mishaps, overexertion of students in team sports, swimming pools and even the use of corporal punishment can all leave a student with serious physical injuries or result in death.  The School Accident and Injury Attorneys of Moss & Colella are experienced in handling all types of school injury cases. We have represented children and adolescents in claims against school districts, officials and administrators throughout the state of Michigan.   School accident cases are extremely complicated and can present pitfalls for attorneys who do not specialize in this area of practice.

While every case is unique and your results may vary, our firm has won cases at all levels of the court system and obtained substantial compensation for children in a number of school injury cases.

Verdicts & Settlements

Dedicated to Serving You

Police Shooting

Officers were called to the home of a man suspected of an overdose. The man refused medical care. Officers at the scene became verbally aggressive in their commands, prompting the man to physically resist their attempts to transport him to a hospital. The officers allege that the man threw a karate style kick and began to choke one of the officers while the other fired his weapon at the man in defense of his fellow officer. As a result, the man suffered a gun-shot wound to the abdomen and nerve damage in his leg. The defense offered $5,000.00 prior to trial. Jury Verdict:

 $495,000

Sexual Harassment

At a national restaurant chain, a female kitchen staff employee was a victim of sexual harassment. This harassment ultimately forced her to quit her job when the employer failed to take the necessary measures to stop this harassment. The verdict was:

 $100,000

 

Jail Death

When discussing the criminal justice system, death and negligence should never be in the same sentence. In this case, failure to properly house a mentally ill inmate, resulted in inmate- on- inmate assault, ultimately leading to an inmate’s death. The settlement was:

 $600,000
