Student Bullying in United States Facts

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 Michigan personal injury lawyers at our law firm receive calls from concerned parents every week about their children who are being bullied in Michigan schools.  We are actively pursuing lawsuits in several cases.  We created the infographic below to display the facts and statistics about student bullying.  You should share this infographic with others working to prevent this problem by:

Student Bullying in United States Statistics and Facts

Embed this image on your site




Student bullying in schools in the United States is a serious issue and very prevalent in our school systems today.  The statistics show that a student is bullied every seven minutes in our country and that most bullying occurs on playgrounds.  The effects of bullying are profound and have a major psychological impact on the bullied student and often causes learning problems in the classroom. 




The majority of states have bullying laws on the books, but most are not significant enough to impact this problem or reduce the amount of bullying that occurs nationwide.  Without more stringent laws and the actual enforcement of those laws, school systems will not feel the pressure to take the affirmative measures necessary to eliminate the bullying problem that terrorizes so many innocent and vulnerable children everyday.
