Chris Dixon

Founder and Managing Attorney

I pride myself on tirelessly fighting for the injury victims who continuously trust me with their cases. It is an honor to serve and a passion which drives my existence.

A 17-year-old St. Louis student was seriously injured at school due to violence from classmates. The girl suffered severe brain damage and temporary blindness because of the incident. In a report from last year, it was reported that there were 1,336 head injuries suffered by high school football players, and various other injuries sustained due to cheerleading, soccer, etc. If your child receives a school injury, it is critical to have a medical professional examine them immediately. While an injury might seem minor, small injuries can worsen if not treated. Serious internal injuries and concussions do not always have easily detected symptoms either, so it is important to consult a medical professional.

Common School Injuries

Children are unpredictable, so there are various reasons why a school injury might occur. Running across a crowded playground can be dangerous, as can wobbly desks and slick floors. Some of the most common school injuries reported are:

  • Ankle injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Wrist injuries
  • Neck injuries

How to Prevent School Injuries

Parents often wonder how they can keep their children safe at school. If your child is involved in sports, ensure that they’re using the right equipment. When choosing clothes, avoid loose fabrics that can catch on things, or slippery shoes. Teach your child to seek adult help if someone is bullying them at school to avoid school physical and emotional injuries. While injuries such as falling out of unsturdy desks and tripping over loose playground happen, you can seek compensation for the damages that occur from the injury. In the event that your child is injured at school, it is important to seek legal help from a school injury lawyer to ensure that your child and family are protected.

Why Are Kids Injured at School in the First Place?

With an average of 23 students to a class, and only one teacher to look after them, poor monitoring and supervision can lead to school injuries. A lack of maintained playgrounds, workout equipment for athletes, and classroom seating can also cause many injuries. Schools are insured by large insurance companies who will try and settle school injuries for the least amount possible. If your child has been injured while at school, the Dixon Injury Firm understands St. Louis and Missouri child injury and school regulation laws, and can ensure that you’ll be well taken care of.
