Some Toronto area schools in need of repairs

Each day parents throughout Ontario send their children off to school to learn. Few, if any, likely spend much time worrying about whether the school environment is safe. While much of the time this is the case, there are times where a child could be hurt. The parents of a Grade 2 student at a Toronto area school know this all too well.

The girl, who attends Earl Beatty Junior and Senior Public School, was hurt when a broken bathroom stall door fell on her and pinned her. The door allegedly fell when another student pushed it open and it came off the hinges. In the accident she received a concussion.

The concussion recovery time will vary depending on the individual who suffers it, as well as the severity of the injury. In this particular situation the girl's mother indicated it took two months. She said the 6-year-old had difficulties concentrating, sleeping and eating.

The incident shines a light on an issue that many schools in the area face--providing a safe learning environment. Children are not the only the ones who are being hurt at schools in Toronto. According to the president of Elementary Teachers of Toronto, elementary teachers in the Toronto District School Board's schools report injuries of varying severity almost every day.

Anytime someone is hurt as the result of the negligence of another party, it may be possible to recoup financial compensation. In this case a premise liability lawsuit may be appropriate.
