A: Review the enrollment contract. There could be terms and provisions (or disclaimers) that address such issues. Different schools could have different policies. Good luck

A: It really depends on how your injuries occurred and whether the motorcycle school caused or contributed to them. In any personal injury lawsuit, there needs to be a breach of a duty of care, whether by a property owner, the driver of a motor vehicle, etc.; and a causal connection between the breach and your injury. Also, as my colleague correctly advised, you need to review whatever it is you signed in connection with the school. I assume you meant "training" school instead of trading school. If that was the case, you may very well have assumed the risk of injury of learning to ride a motorcycle.
