Michigan School Accident and Abuse Facts
A Michigan School injury lawyer can be a valuable resource to any parent or legal guardian. 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. A Michigan school abuse lawyer at Moss & Colella can help you with any form of discrimination or injury your child has encountered while attending school.
Children are susceptible to a variety of injuries at school. Shop class machinery mishaps, overexertion of students in team sports, swimming pools, sexual assault, and even the use of corporal punishment can all leave a student with serious physical injuries or result in death. The Michigan 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.

I reached out via website for a consultation and was given a rapid response on a Saturday. I was impressed by the advice and the consultation.
