A Fayetteville accident at school is making parents and school officials wonder if a student’s injuries were caused by a teacher or another student. A boy at a Fayetteville elementary school was pulled away from a fight he was having with a girl. Later, his parents realized their son had a broken arm. Although the school firmly believes harmful force was not used, the substitute teacher who broke up the fight is a potential cause of the boy’s injuries, according to local news sources. An investigation is being made to determine who is at fault for the boy’s injuries that occurred on school property.
Children’s injuries on and off school property are not always a result of the school’s faculty or property maintenance. Students can be a threat to each other, in which case an injured child’s parents would pursue an injury claim directly with the at-fault student and his or her guardians.
