Missouri School District Settles Case with Injured High School Student
Accidents happen at Missouri schools all the time. Sometimes they truly are accidents, and sometimes they are the result of negligence on the part of the school district. One young woman is finally getting the compensation that is owed to her after suffering severe injuries in 2010.
Student Injured During School Event
The student was seventeen years old at the time, and the incident occurred during a back to school event. She was pushed into a muddy pit, and then other students fell on her as well. She suffered horrific injuries as a result of the accident, including permanent brain damage, temporary blindness and dementia. She also suffered four strokes.
The lawsuit stated that not only was the pit not being supervised properly, but the staff at the school did not respond to her quickly enough with emergency help. After a long battle, the case was settled for $423,106. The school district has still refused to admit liability in the case.
