Negligent Supervision Case Looks To Create Positive Change

When most people think of negligence, they think of a car crash where a person recovers damages for medical bills, lost wages and pain & suffering.  However, there are other types of negligence cases that Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith handles that not only compensate a person for damages but can also force positive changes.

Businesses that are entrusted with the care of others have a duty to properly supervise and control their employees to prevent them from inflicting intentional harm.   Negligent supervision occurs when the employer fails to do so.  Children, the elderly, and people with special needs are all particularly vulnerable.  In one case, the School Board hired a school bus attendant to ensure that special needs children safely got to their elementary school each day.  The attendant’s job was to protect the kids, but instead, he abused multiple children, multiple times over multiple months, all without detection by the school board.  The attendant was eventually caught, arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse.  Our firm represents the child and his family.  We’ve brought a negligent supervision claim against the school board in an effort to force them to provide meaningful employee oversight so that no child is ever abused on a school bus again.

Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith is committed to the protection and improvement of our community both through participation in worthy causes and by utilizing the law to bring about necessary change.
