Long Island Lawyers: Why we Care About Bullying

Here on Long Island, as well as all over the country, bullying has become a tremendous problem both in the schools and now at home through text messaging and social networking sites like Facebook. When we first decided to get involved in creating an anti-bullying campaign, we started a Facebook discussion group called STOP Bullying on Long Island, published a helpful resource for parents entitled Bullying-Fighting Back: A Legal Guide for Parents of Bullied Children and posted useful articles on our website. We were interviewed for other articles, including Avvo’s Ask a Lawyer: How to Stop Cyberbullying.

But even we were not prepared for the flood of calls we get from parents with questions about bullying and specific incidents involving their children. The stories all carried a similar theme: kids being abused and tormented repeatedly while frustrated parents felt that school officials and staff either ignored their complaints or did not do enough in response to previous incidents.

If your child is being bullied at school, we urge you to empower yourself and take action! Learn more about your legal rights and fight back. Our article What You Need to Do If Your Child is Being Bullied provides an 8-step checklist for you to follow, and our free report which can be ordered directly from our website provides further information.

If your child has been seriously injured, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact our offices if you have any questions or think you have a legal case. We will sit down with you for a free consultation and answer any questions you have, let you know the legal process and what you can expect from your case. We have handled many bullying cases and our lawyers are sensitive to the emotional issues involved with bullying and understand how difficult these cases can be for a child as well as their parents.

Goldstein and Bashner When it comes to the capacity to generate profound upheaval and anguish in the lives of those involved, almost nothing rivals a serious personal injury event stemming from the negligence of others. The physical suffering, financial pressures and family strain that so often result from such circumstances can seem insurmountable unless justice and accountability can be obtained from those responsible.
