that statement does lead one to believe your possible suit against the school does have something to do with this situation.. Nobody at the school even called me to tell me that they were bringing her for x-ray or when they found out that her ankle was broken so I don't think they would have taken notice....but thats a whole other story. To be honest, Im not as concerned about a law suit against the hotel unless negligence was the reason. However, if there is a case, I will file a suit. Mine will eventually be after the schools....so when I get a few extra minutes, I'll post on the educational law forum.
Sorry your daughter broke her ankle but somtimes kids get hurt while playing and there is nobody to blame.
OK I was just wondering if I should contact a lawyer....I actually wasn't there so its really hard to say what happened. As far as her school cooperating, I doubt it. I know there was an incident report filed but I have not seen a copy of it yet. I really don't know if I'm even entitled to see a copy of it or not.
if you truly believe there was negligence on the hotels part and believe there is a reason to sue, then yes, contact an attorney. If you have serious doubts, I would write this off as children sometimes get hurt while they are growing up. Given the condition your child, and you along with it, must deal with, a court battle may not be in the best interest of your child. She would be directly involved with any suit you bring against anybody concerning this matter and it may overwhelm her. Only you and her doctors can make that call.
Not trying to be judgmental here but you sound a bit overly aggressive (protective?) with the lawsuit possibilities. Could simply be because of this forum and the reason folks come here but...
Look to the best interest of your child. Lawsuits can be a lot of work and bring a lot of attention to the plaintiff (your child essentially). Not that I believe you should avoid a legitimate suit but you do sound a bit aggressive.
Like I said, not trying to be judgmental, just telling you what I see.
I also don't see how this has anything to do with her IEP.
Accidents happen. Sometimes, they are the faults of others. Sometimes, they are our own fault.
Just because an accident happened at a hotel does not mean the hotel has fault in the matter.
