After a campus accident, know that you’re not alone. You aren’t the first and sadly won’t be the last to experience serious injuries while walking, biking, driving, or living on campus. Fort Lauderdale elementary schools, high schools, and colleges such as Broward, Keiser, and Nova Southeastern have all experienced legal actions for campus-related incidents that injured students. Some of the most common types of accidents include:
Collisions in parking lots, parking garages, or at intersections near campus can cause serious to fatal injuries. Common crash injuries include broken bones, burns, head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. You may have a claim against the at-fault driver for negligence and/or the school for an unsafe roadway, parking lot, or crosswalk.
Campus slip and fall accidents, elevator/escalator accidents, animal attacks, hazardous substance exposure, fires, and food poisoning are all examples of unsafe property defects that could cause student and teacher injury. The school is responsible for keeping its grounds free from unreasonable risks of harm and could be liable for premises-related accidents and injuries.
A defective school appliance, classroom tool, a piece of furniture, structure, playground equipment, or other consumer product could result in injuries such as burns, lacerations, pinch injuries, head and brain injuries, spine injuries, traumatic amputations, and more. Victims might have personal injury claims against the manufacturer of the item in question.
If someone physically attacked, injured, robbed, assaulted, raped, or otherwise caused you harm while on the school campus in Fort Lauderdale, you may be able to seek justice from the perpetrator and the school. Negligent security is a type of premises liability claim that often arises from campus crimes.
Bullying at school can have severe consequences on the victim’s physical, emotional, and psychological well-being. It is a school’s responsibility to reasonably prevent bullying and dangers such as college hazing with systems, protocols, and proper supervision. Injured victims could potentially bring a claim against the school for negligence.
