At Donaldson & Weston, PA we receive regular inquiries from parents who are concerned about their children being bullied at school. Although assault and battery are terms more frequently used in criminal charges, they can be used as claims in a civil lawsuit as well.
In addition, the victim can file a claim for negligently providing a safe environment for students. Although child safety is always important, these cases are even more shocking when they occur at private schools as parents are paying for their children to receive the next level of education as well as safety.
Take a look at this video which references a lawsuit recently filed against a local private school for bullying: King’s Academy Bullying lawsuit.
