It may be helpful to contact an attorney when:
• You have repeatedly notified the school that your child is being bullied
• The school hasn’t taken sufficient action to stop the bullying
• The bullying of your child is severe and ongoing
• Your child is suffering serious effects from the bullying
Lawsuits against school districts that fail to protect children from bullying play a very important role in curbing bullying, but they are a solution of last resort—when efforts to get schools to act appropriately have failed.
If you are thinking about filing a lawsuit to protect your child, please feel free to contact Public Justice for legal assistance. Call 202-797-8600 or e-mail us at [email protected].
Even if Public Justice can’t assist you, we may be able to help you find a local attorney who can. If you already have an attorney, we may able to assist the attorney with your case.
