Springfield School Injury Lawyers

Southwest Missouri Attorneys for School Accidents and Injuries

Students do not abandon their civil rights at the steps to the school. This includes the right to sue for injuries suffered at school through negligence or intentional acts. However, school districts and their staff and administrators have certain immunities from lawsuits. You need an attorney who understands the law and who is prepared to go to court if necessary in pursuit of damages for the losses and harms.

If your son or daughter suffered serious injury on school grounds or at a school-related function, the personal injury lawyers of the Law Offices of Dan Moody and Paul Wacker, L.L.C., can evaluate your potential claims for compensation.

We can answer your questions and advocate for you.

Based in Springfield, we practice in surrounding counties of southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas.

Springfield School Injury Attorneys

You may have legal recourse for injuries from school-sanctioned activities or school accidents, including:

  • A slip-and-fall accident on school grounds
  • School bus accidents
  • Sports-related injuries
  • Accidents on field trips
  • Burns, explosions,
    electric shock or toxic exposure
  • Injury inflicted by a teacher or administrator
  • An assault by other students

Dan Moody and Paul Wacker are veteran litigators with the experience and resources to demonstrate liability. In an accidental injury, our job is to prove that school personnel created a dangerous condition, had notice or should have been aware of the hazard: a puddle from a leaky fountain, a missing handrail in the stairwell or broken playground equipment.

In the case of school-related physical assault or sexual assault, we have to prove that the school failed in a duty to prevent the attack or failed to intervene to stop an attack or fight, or that an administrator or faculty member willfully or recklessly caused injury.

We can also pursue actions against third parties who may be responsible for a school injury — parents of another student, private bus companies, building contractors or equipment manufacturers.
