School neglegent?

My 17 yr old son was participating in a service day at school and they were cleaning up peoples yards and hauling things to the dump and there wasn't a teacher present and he was stupid and did a donut and kicked up rocks causing damage to 2 vehicles and caused around $2000 damage for which we will have to pay for and our car insurance might not cover it. The principal was notified and he then also called the police and my son was given a reckless driving ticket which he needs to go to court for yet. I feel had there been a teacher there supervising him he would never have done it. Is this worth pursuing with a lawyer? They school also never notified any of the parents of kids involved in the incident.

It is unlikely that the teacher's absence was the cause of your son's reckless act that occurred on school grounds, since establishing causation in a negligence claim has recently become more difficult due to possibility of the same incident occurring even if your son's teacher was present.

It is advisable to contact a personal injury attorney to provide you with the most accurate advice on whether you should pursue a negligence case against the school district. A link can be found here http://www.legalmatch.com/law-librar...egligence.html

It seems like your son's fault and it is unlikely to be the case of negligence. But still you can consider the help of personal injury attorney
