School held Liable in 14 yr old boy's Family Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Plaintiff, an 11th grade high school student at Broad Channel in Queens, died after collapsing while running track during gym class. A wrongful death lawsuit was brought in the Second Department where an issue of fact was raised as to whether the gym teacher negligently supervised the decedent by denying her request to stop running after she completed the first lap.

The Law Offices of Ross & Hill have litigated many School Liability and Negligent Supervision lawsuits.

•(1) Plaintiff, an infant child, was taken to the bathroom during day care nap time where she was sexually molested by a teenage boy (the son of an adult staff member who was supposed to be supervising the children). The dare care center was held negligent in failing to provide safe and adequate supervision to the plaintiff. Significant psychological personal injuries were suffered by the infant child and as such, a substantial award was made.

•(2) In a wrongful death action, plaintiff, a 14 year old child drowned in a motel swimming pool after jumping in the pool in an attempt to save his drowning friend. Both children did not know how to swim and died. The boys were on an overnight school trip and able to wander the premises of the Motel freely without supervision. It was later discovered that the school supervisors had left their posts to enjoy a cup of coffee and chat with the other parents. The school chaperones were negligent in failing to supervise the children. Ross & Hill recovered a substantial 7 figure award for the family of the 14 year old child.
