Abuse in School
Sending your child to school is an act of trust. On rare occasions, that trust is violated. And unfortunately, children with disabilities suffer a disproportionate level of abuse from the adults charged with their care. Federal courts have recognized that children have a constitutional right to attend public school free of excessive force. Private schools are also held responsible for mistreatment of students on their watch.
Asher, Gaughran LLP has extensive experience successfully representing students who have been abused in school. We treat each case, and each client, with the consideration needed at this difficult time, while vigorously vindicating each child's right to attend school in a safe environment.
