I am very sorry to learn of your son's injuries.You do have recourse here. With regard to the school, they are in breach of their contract
to you - they agreed to reimburse you for your son's medical expenses and now they are not.You are also entitled to sue the child that hit your son (his parent's are liable for the torts
that their child commits - so you can sue him for the tort of battery, which is an intentional tort, and the parents are liable for all "compensatory" damages - medical expenses plus pain and suffering, as well as "punitive damages
" - additional money damages to punish the intentional conduct by the defendant).Personal injury
claims are based on expert testimony
, this means you, or your attorney, will need to find a medical expert to testify as to the cause of your injury. The same (or a different) expert can then testify as to your projected future damages and cost of medical care. Due to the complexity of these claims, I highly recommend that you retain a plaintiff's lawyer (also called trial attorneys). Fortunately the majority of these attorneys will provide you with a free consultation, and many will represent you on a contingency basis (they will advance the costs of litigation
and legal services in exchange for a portion of your successful settlement or judgment). You can find local attorneys using the State and Local Bar Association directories, or private directories such as www.AVVO.com; www.FindLaw.com; or www.Martindale.com (I personally find www.AVVO.com to be the most user friendly).
