Sokol Law Firm settles injury case against local school district

The firm’s client was a 10 year old girl who suffered from severe asthma.  Upon instruction by her doctor, the child was permitted by the district to use her inhaler when needed during the school day.

One day, a substitute teacher was instructing the child’s class.  The child asked the teacher if she could use her inhaler, as she was having trouble breathing. The teacher told her no and instructed her to sit down.  The child got up and asked the teacher if she could go use her inhaler two more times.  All requests were denied, and she was ordered back to her seat.

Ultimately, the child suffered an attack so severe, that an ambulance had to be called and the child rushed to the local children’s hospital.

The school district acknowledged the mistake and fired the substitute teacher. The terms of the monetary settlement are confidential.
