School bullying is a type of premises liability claim. Owners of a premises have a duty of care to keep non-trespassers safe from harm while on their premises. Children are a vulnerable population, so extra care should be taken to protect them. But Many schools fail their students in this aspect. Parents of the other children involved in the bullying often dismiss the concerns of worried parents. Whether you are filing a suit against the school’s insurance, the school for a tort claim, or the parents of the aggressive child, I will ensure you get what is right for you and your child.
Suicide is the leading cause of death among children between ages 10-14 in America, and the 3rd leading cause of death for people aged 15-24. School bullying is an unfortunate and growing trend not only in Clark County, the fifth largest school district in the United States, but across the country. Brave parents like you need to take a stand against bullying by filing lawsuits against the school district. That is the only way this problem will get better.

* Required Fields
Bullying can be a physical act, taunting, cyberbullying (when the harassment reaches beyond the school grounds), stalking, threatening, blackmail, slander, manipulation of peers, and much more. In severe cases a criminal act occurs with the bullying.
Bullying lawsuits are more likely to succeed when they are based on physical rather than social or verbal harassment. Furthermore, some states will not permit a tort recovery unless a physical injury can be proven. A pattern of verbal or social harassment over a prolonged period can justify a recovery by strengthening a claim of physical harm. Evidence to meet this requirement might be shown through depression, declining grades, anxiety, and other forms of psychological harm.
There are some common law causes of action that schools can be held accountable under, as well:
Lastly, call us. Bullying has become such a serious issue today. Many kids can’t handle the pressure that is put on them by their peers, or the disappointment of their school not protecting them. The effects of bullying, both physical and emotional, are long lasting and some parents and children pay the ultimate price. Help protect your child and other children from paying the price of others' malice.
Schools hold liability insurance for harm caused on their premises. Bullying usually falls under this general liability coverage. You may not be the type of person who wants to sue, but is it really fair that you–or worse, your child–be the one who pays the price due to their abuse and neglect?
