Is my child’s school responsible for medical bills if my child is injured on a playground?
If your child is injured at a school playground or in the school itself, the school or the entity that is responsible for the actual accident is ultimately going to be responsible for the medical bills. It’s not a situation that you forward them the bills immediately or even 30 days of the accident and they pay it.
What ultimately happens is that it’s included as part of the lawsuit and as part of the past claims that you and your child have suffered. That’s why you should contact an attorney to bring these sorts of claims because otherwise you’re not going to be able to do it yourself and you might, ultimately, lose out on the ability to get compensated for something that you had to put out and pay for your child’s care when, ultimately, someone else was responsible for it.
