In order to preserve your legal rights you must serve a notice of claim on the school district within 90 days of the incident. You can then investigate whether this was a one-time incident or whether the teacher has a pattern of abusive behavior. You might have a case. If you do the lawsuit needs to be filed within one year and 90 days of the incident.

Education Law
For many families, their first introduction to the legal system comes as they try to protect and enforce the rights of their children to obtain an education. An education law attorney will have experience with a host of school-related legal issues, including the education rights of special-needs children, freedom of speech issues, anti-bullying and harassment statutes, and student discipline issues. Lawyers and law firms that practice education law will also work with teachers and schools, including colleges and universities.
