What to know if your Child gets Injured at School in Brooklyn

When a parent learns from their child that they were hurt at school and injured, other than finding out what happened, the most important thing is that they contact the school, the principal, or whomever, so they can to obtain an incident report regarding the incident where your child was hurt.

An attorney trying to get that same incident report would not be provided by the school because they don’t want to give it to you. You’re entitled to get it when the lawsuit is started but often give it to the parent of the child or the student upon asking for it.  It’s very important that as soon as you can, go to the school and request that incident report because more than likely they will give it to you.
