School Injuries: Bullying

Personal Injury Attorneys in New York

School is thought of as safe place to send our children to learn and expand their knowledge. Too often students are abused and become victims of bullying. Schools are responsible for the safety of our children and to properly supervise and protect students. Bullying and abuse can be avoided if school officials intervene and prevent the abuse, but far too often the issues are ignored under the presumption that "kids are just being kids."

When schools ignore bullying, you may have no choice but to take legal action. At Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP, our New York school injury lawyers hold teachers and administrators responsible for negligence that has allowed innocent children to suffer from bullying.

Call (888) 260-0473 to discuss how your child is being bullied in a confidential case evaluation.

Effects of bullying

Bullying can affect a student's entire life, starting with poor school performance. Victims of bullying feel helpless and develop poor self esteem. Bullying can and should be stopped by schools, so that the children there can benefit from a healthy and safe learning environment.

Common bullying abuse:

  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Verbal abuse
  • Online/virtual harassment
  • Group bullying or "Mobbing"

When a child feels helpless, they can start to develop serious self esteem issues and act out at home. Responses to abuse take many forms, from anger, to depression, and even hopelessness. These are serious injuries, and taking legal action is sometimes necessary in order to give the victimized children a brighter future.
