School Liability

We represented the mother of a young girl who suffered from autism. While at school, she was not properly supervised and fell out of a classroom window, falling approximately fifteen feet to the ground. In addition to injuries to her left hip and leg, the accident aggravated her autism.We filed suit in the Superior Court for the District of Columbia and retained an autism expert to testify that the accident worsened her condition. We were able to settle the case prior to trial, which the girl’s mother wished to avoid.
