BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The family of a student allegedly critically injured during Physical Education at Spanish River High School is now suing the Palm Beach County School District — claiming that the Phys. Ed. teacher was negligent.

Attorney Doreen Rubio filed the suit on behalf of the student who we are not publicly identifying at this time. The incident occurred on October 12, 2021.

According to the suit, “the student was engaged in compulsory physical education class and at all time was supposed to be supervised by a teacher and/or instructor and/or personnel and/or other adult employed by the Palm Beach County School District. (The School District) owed the student a duty to use reasonable care in the custody, care, control, and supervision of her while she was on the school premises and engaged in the above mentioned physical education class.”

“The Palm Beach County School District failed to take reasonable steps to adequately supervise the student and other students during physical education class, causing the student to sustain serious permanent injury.”

INJURIES

The suit states that as a result of the Palm Beach County School District’s negligence, the student “suffered broken bones and scarring, and her physical and mental abilities were impaired. She lost the enjoyment of life. Her injuries are permanent and continuing in nature.”

Attorney Rubio did not immediately respond to a request from BocaNewsNow.com for additional information. The Palm Beach County School District does not comment on active litigation. It was not immediately clear what happened during the Phys. Ed. class in question, or whether others students are claiming injury as well.
