Should we sue my child's 1st grade teacher? 6 Answers as of April 16, 2013

My child had accidentally lodged a pencil in her right hand and her teacher refused to send her to the nurse's office. And her teacher had also told her to stop crying in a horrible manner. She said "Stop crying, Don't be like your brother." (My son cries a lot at school) my child is also emotionally scarred from this. This happened 5 years ago.

You can try but I am not sure whether the suit would be in time. Talk to a personal injury attorney.

From the information provided, it doesn't appear that there is a substantial cause of action and it also appears the claim would be barred by the statute of limitations.

Too late if the incident was 5 years ago. Statute of Limitations has run. I must be missing something. Why did you wait 5 years before deciding to do something.
