Anytime you or a loved one has suffered injuries because of the negligence of another, you may be entitled to monetary relief in the form of damages. Such damages are generally in amounts equal to the pain and suffering you have gone through, your lost wages, outstanding medical bills, and all of your other expenses and injuries. Although a personal injury lawsuit may not be the first thing for those injured to want to do, it may be the only way for victims and their families to begin recovering from their economic losses. That is why plaintiffs should rely on an experienced personal injury attorney as the person who can help guide them through the complicated litigation process.
One of the most, if not the most, important aspect of any school district is to make sure that students do not get hurt while at school. While this seems like common sense, the larger the school district, the harder it becomes to make sure all students are safe. The Albuquerque, New Mexico Public Schools District found out just how hard this can be when one of their students was injured after a bench smashed the student’s fingers.
The family of Addie Raymer, a student at one of the high schools in the Albuquerque school district, has filed a claim alleging the injuries Addie suffered while at school were due to the negligence of the school district. The family argued the district did not do what it could to save the student from a dangerous situation that resulted in permanent disfigurement. It is alleged that when Addie sat down for lunch on a bench with her friend, the bench began to slip backward; and, in an attempt to stop the fall, Addie’s fingers were smashed, and surgery was required. The injury permanently disfigured her hand.
