Settlement for Nonverbal Child Physically and Emotionally Abused at School

The Case: Our client, an 8 year old nonverbal child with Autism, was physically and verbally abused at school and developed a conversion disorder in response to the abuse, manifesting in the form of seizures. The lawsuit alleged that our client was supervised and protected in a grossly negligent manner while in the custody of the school, and that the school staff orchestrated a cover-up instead of reporting the abuse to authorities as required by South Carolina law.

The Outcome: Discovery in this tragic case revealed that the unsafe and abusive environment our client faced at school was only part of a systemic problem that existed in the school district as a whole. A settlement of $200,000 was reached on behalf of our client.
