Our personal injury lawyers at the
law firm of Goodman Acker, P.C. recently filed a lawsuit in the Wayne County Circuit Court on behalf of
a nine-year-old girl who was
seriously injured after a bank of fourteen lockers fell on top of her. The young girl was
attempting to pull her coat of out her locker when the lockers came crashing
down on her.
The incident happened at a middle school within the Dearborn Public School
District. As a result of the lockers falling down on her she suffered
pelvic fractures and her teeth were knocked out.
We filed the lawsuit against Dearborn Public Schools for the failure to
provide a safe environment.
Schools have an obligation to protect students. This includes providing
a safe environment. Therefore structural problems with the school building
and its grounds may be considered negligence, and if a student is injured
due to the school’s negligence, it could give rise to a lawsuit.
Filing a claim against a public school system can get quite complicated.
This is because you are filing a lawsuit against a public school system
and you must be able to prove that the school was directly responsible
for causing the accident. It is important that you consult with an attorney
who has experience in these types of cases.
