Schools are supposed to be safe places for students. Although most schools, including public and private schools, have security guards on-site, these guards do anything but keep students safe. In fact, these guards are actually the ones responsible for harming students. Was your son or daughter injured as a result of school security guard assault and battery? If so, you should explore your legal options – you might have grounds to sue.

School Security Guard Assault and Battery
Unfortunately, security guards can sometimes abuse their power and seriously harm innocent people. The same applies to school security guards; guards can significantly harm students. For example, school security guards can potentially use excessive force when dealing with students that are causing trouble. Whether the attack was completely random or an extreme response to an incident, it is possible for students to suffer significant injuries as a result of the attacks.
Some of the Potential Injuries that Students Can Suffer
Students who suffer assault and battery at the hands of school security guards can potentially suffer some of the following injuries:
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Organ damage (such as collapsed lungs, punctured lungs, etc.)
- Scrapes and bruises
In some cases, the assault and battery suffered could even be fatal. Regardless of the harm resulting from the security guard attack, parents might have grounds to sue for the harm suffered by students.
The Statute of Limitations
All claims are subject to a statute of limitations, or a deadline to pursue your injury claim. If your claim is not filed within the time allowed by the statute of limitations, you could lose your right to sue for the harm suffered. What deadline applies to your school security guard assault and battery claim? In general, injury claims – like assault and battery claims – are subject to a two-year statute of limitations, which gives students only two years to file their claims. This deadline typically applies to claims filed against private schools; however, this does not apply for claims filed against public schools. If you are pursuing a claim against a public school, you will have to file a government claim, which is subject to an initial six-month deadline. Without a doubt, certain exceptions could apply to the statute of limitations; for instance, if a student under the age of eighteen is injured, the statute of limitations can be tolled (or paused) until the student is eighteen years old. Before this time, the student’s parents can sue. To ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the deadline that applies to your school security guard assault and battery lawsuit, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with our experts today.

Earnings from a Product Liability Claim against Belkin
The value of a product liability lawsuit will largely be determined by the injuries you suffered and how extensive they were. If you were seriously hurt, you will potentially receive a larger settlement offer than if you only suffered minor injuries. The insurance agent wants to preserve profits and not pay out settlements, and we aim to bring you the maximum settlement available under the law. Our goal is to secure you compensation for the following:
- Medical bills and expenses from the past and future for surgery, hospitalization fees, medication, physical therapy, and more
- Lost wages if you were unable to work or could not return to work in the future
- Property damage to cover lost items and personal belongings
- Pain and suffering damages to account for emotional trauma, anxiety, PTSD, fear, and more
You should not be expected to foot the bill for all of these expenses if you were not responsible for the incident in the first place. A defective product claim can allow you to receive the compensation you need to pay for these damages.
