If you have a child in school, you might already be familiar with the discrimination they can face. Schools can be particularly tough for certain students. At the Bogle Law, we understand the importance of keeping your child safe, both physically and emotionally. Bullying is never appropriate, and while schools have policies in place to discipline those responsible, they often don’t go far enough to keep it from happening in the future. Our Punta Gorda bullying and fights at school lawyers can help you stand up for the rights of your child.

Call (941) 257-4743 now or contact Bogle Law online for a consultation about protecting your child from bullying.

Signs of Bullying

Few things are more heartbreaking than finding out your child has been bullied or abused at school. It is the responsibility of schools to promote and uphold good, safe behavior among students, regardless of their age, gender, and other factors. When they fail, the consequences can cause lasting damage. If you believe your child was a victim of bullying, there are laws in place to help you prevent it from happening again.

You should consider speaking with a Punta Gorda bullying lawyer if you notice the following signs in your child:

  • New, unexplained injuries
  • Faking illness to stay at home from school
  • Changes in eating habits
  • Changes in sleeping patterns
  • Loss of interest in school
  • Threats to run away from home
  • Self-destructive behaviors
  • Lost or damaged property, such as clothing and schoolbooks
  • Declining grades
  • Other changes in behavior, such as becoming more withdrawn

The Bogle Law offers confidential and no obligation consultations, so feel free to contact us if you believe your child may have been subjected to bullying. These situations are serious and failing to address them quickly can have serious effects on the mental and emotional well-being of your child.

Can Students Be Prosecuted for Fights at School?

While school fights and bullying typically result in punishments like suspension or detention, an increasing number of middle and high school students are being arrested for their abusive behavior in schools. The legal consequences for one or more students accused to bullying or assault may even lead to a court case.

If your child has been involved in a fight, please reach out to us right away to discuss your legal rights and options. A lawyer can help protect your child’s rights. Our firm also functions as a criminal defense practice, so we possess in depth knowledge of how juvenile cases may be handled in the state of Florida.
