Boca Raton Bullying Injury Lawyers
Every day children face the risk of injury. None, however, are as preventable as bullying injuries. What begins as light teasing, or playful mockery, can escalate into dangerous bullying. If teachers, supervisors, and other adults at school do not intervene, our children fall victim to bullying injuries. When a bully’s rough and abusive behaviors remain uncorrected, they could ultimately cause physical injury to their victim.
Physical injuries often attributed to bullying include:
- Unexplainable Injuries
- Bruising or Cuts Along Arms
- Black Eyes
- Damaged Scalp
- Frequent headaches or stomach aches, feeling sick or faking illness
The educational system and the bully’s parents have an unshakable responsibility to prevent bullying and bullying injures. If nothing has been done to protect your child from bullying while they are at school, you must take action. Contact the Shiner Law Group and our Boca Raton, FL bullying attorneys today. With our representation, you may be able to stop your child’s bullying and receive financial compensation for their injuries and hardship.
Bullying Causes Emotional Trauma
Children, especially young teenagers, are considerably tough and physically resilient for their age. While their constitution is commendable, it often does not protect them from the emotional trauma caused by bullying. Indeed, persistent abuse from bullying causes mental distress. Statistically, mental health is reportedly the most dangerous part of children’s bullying experiences. Psychological disorders in adulthood can typically be traced back to ongoing and unprevented bullying.

Negative or harmful emotions and behaviors that may afflict your bullied child include:
- Declining grades, loss of interest in schoolwork, or not wanting to go to school
- Sudden loss of friends or avoidance of social situations
- Self-destructive behaviors such as running away from home, harming themselves, or talking about suicide
Bully injury lawsuits, whether against the bully’s family or the negligent school faculty, should consider the emotional impact that may have affected your child.
