Please note that Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. is not accepting cases for student bullying. Recent case law in Michigan has made it extremely difficult to win this type of lawsuit against a school system or school employees. The content below is for informational purposes only. We sincerely regret that we cannot pursue this type of case for you or your child.
The bullying of students at school is nothing new and most kids have been harrassed by other students at some point during their school life. However, some times this bullying reaches such great heights that in has a significant impact on the lives, both present and future, of the bullied student. When school officials are aware of this problem and fail to act to prevent it from happening, the student has the right to file a lawsuit against the school district for the abuse resulting from the failure to act or intervene.
We recently added a Library Article to our website, Student Bullying Lawsuits, that discusses the laws in Michigan for these types of cases. Parents of a bullied student should contact our office at (800) 606-1717 to see if their child has a case.
