Field trips were a highlight of the school year when you were a kid, and many parents will remember their experiences fondly as they prepare to send their own children out on a learning-based excursion. The Florida Department of Education posted a publication on fun field trips, describing the high points at Zoo Miami, the Miami Children’s Museum, Amelia Earhart Pak, and many other South Florida attractions. However, there are certain risk factors involved with school field trips. A large group of children in a non-classroom setting, reliance on volunteers, and inherent dangers with certain outings increase the potential for accidents.
Learning that your child was hurt is overwhelming for a parent, leaving you bewildered about your rights and what to do next. Your first move should be contacting a Miami child injuries lawyer for legal help, but there are few tips that will help you get through the aftermath of a school field trip accident.
