    Default Daughter getting injured at school WDYT

    Just a question, our 8 year old DD got pushed over today (deliberately) he came running and pushed her. She scraped her face and knees on the concrete and chipped her front tooth which is an adult tooth. It's a very obvious chip.
    My husband is furious and thinks the boy's parents should have to pay for our daughters dental visit but I'm not so sure?

    Has anyone had this happen to them?
    What do you think?

    I would expect them to pay.
    I hope she is ok.

    Who witnessed it?
    It's very hard to prove it was deliberate and not an accident.
    Do you know the parents?

    Eta: if it was on school grounds then shouldn't the school be liable?

    I'd be following up with the school to see if they have insurance or whatever that would cover it, and they may be able to give advice regarding contacting the boys parents to see if they will contribute. (If it is definite that he did it deliberately).

    Lots of kids witnessed it and this boy is well known to hurt others, he usually has an aide but she wasn't with him at the time.

    If that's the case I'd definitely be approaching the school first

    It sounds terrible but as soon as the school rang me to tell me about the incident I knew it was this boy.

    Check if the school insurance will cover it, and then (if not) ask the teacher to approach the boy's parents.

    I would consult the school- get a written incident report- then decide what to do. I would then submit a response in writing outlining what i wanted to do, whether to meet with the parents etc. I would do every step through the official school channels. In the meantime, go ahead and get the dental repair and keep the receipts in case you want to submit them to the school later. I would not, at this stage, be insisting the parents pay for it. I hope it goes well for you.

    Just a side note.. I believe in Victoria you are eligible for free dental for children. My nephew chipped his tooth in half and it was done via public dental free of charge.
