My 16 yr old son is severly autistic and goes to a private school. He has been going there for 10 yrs. On tuesday i got a call from the school nurse at work saying there was an incident. He has a motor skills job that requires him to take apart and put back together flashlights...he has done this before...well this time he dropped the lens from the flashlight and it broke in 2 pieces. He apparently ate the other half. Needless to say i was, livid and hysterical. they asked me if they should call an ambulance. i said yes. THey did xrays and saw nothing, they then decided to put a scope down his throat into his stomach, to see if they saw anything they may have missed on the xrays, they found nothing...my question is this.....should i seek legal counsel against the school. As i stated before this has been his school for 10 yrs, and this is an isolated incident.......Answer Question
So they thought he ate glass but he didn't? If they paid the medical bills I think I would let it go. Things do happen, and teachers & aides aren't always quick enough to prevent a child from hurting themselves. I'd say 1 incident in 10 yrs is a pretty good record, wouldn't you?
