Q: My 6 year old was pulled out of a bathroom by his teacher slamming his head against the wall. Do I have a case?

A: One of the experienced Florida injury attorneys here could answer you best, but I wanted to bring something to your attention, as your question is open for nearly a week. As a general matter in many jurisdictions, public schools, municipalities, public transportation carriers, etc. are often protected by fairly short notice of claim requirements. If you are contemplating a claim, it would be advisable to contact a Florida attorney without delay to learn if any such requirements are applicable. You ask if you have a case? That's something that could only be determined after a thorough medical evaluation by a physician. I hope your son is okay and there are no injuries necessitating a case. But you could learn more about your son's rights and the timetables within which you need to act to preserve them by contacting an attorney. Good luck
