Many people consider bullying to be an inevitable part of childhood, brushing it aside by saying that kids will be kids. Seemingly harmless teasing can escalate quickly, though, especially with social media, creating overwhelming and traumatic environments for bullied children. These can be incredibly stressful times for both the child and parents as they seek to find someone who can make the bullying stop. Schools and administrators have a responsibility to protect children from bullying, and when they fail to do so, the emotional toll on the child can be significant. If your child has suffered severe school bullying and harassment, there are legal steps you can take to hold the responsible parties accountable.

At Holman Schiavone, LLC, of Kansas City, Missouri, we fight to protect children from bullying and emotionally damaging situations. This can include verbal, physical or sexual abuse, as well as cyber bullying and bullying via online or social media platforms. Our attorneys ask that the parent and child carefully document specific examples of abuse. We will further investigate the circumstances and show not only where the bullying occurred, but what should have been done to stop it. Our lawyers will contact the school with official notification that the abuse must stop. If it does not, we are prepared to file lawsuit, seeking compensation for the family.

You may be told that you must live with bullying and the effects it has on your children. This is not true. If your child has been bullied, contact our Kansas City, Missouri, law firm for a free consultation to learn how we can help to put a stop to it.
