    Default Re: Can You Sue Your Child's School for an Assault on the Playground

    The mere fact that an assault occurred, by one student against another, is not going to be sufficient to establish liability. Schools cannot prevent all playground fighting, bullying and other inappropriate behavior, even though some of it may be injurious.

    If the injury is serious, or more facts are involved that could create liability on the part of the school or its employees, the parent should consult a personal injury lawyer for a review of the case based upon the full facts.
