Bullying comes in a variety of forms. Bullying can lead to depression, loss of esteem, and even to suicide, among victims.
School boards are potentially liable for failure to properly address bullying concerns whereas a school board is required to provide care similar to that of a, "... the careful or prudent parent"; Myers v. Peel (County) Board of Education,  2 S.C.R. 21 at page 31; Karam v. Ottawa-Carleton District School Board,  O.J. No. 2966 at paragraph 37.
While legal representatives such as paralegals at the
McEachern, de Mel firm can help advocate for liability against schools, among others, parents should also seek the assistance of esteem support groups. For more information within the Durham Region, contact:
In addition to potential claims for negligent supervision against school boards, other legal issues may exist. If your child is the victim of bullying, seek prompt help from support groups as well as legal advice.
