Can I sue the school due to the teacher's aid shutting his finger in the classroom door resulting in loss of top of pinky and bone damage? This is something that happened on school property and during school hours. When I received the call that this had happened, the secretary told me I needed to come pick up my son for an accident that had happened and she wasn't sure if he needed er attention. My son is going to have this disfiguring mark the rest of his life. Isn't there some way the school should be liable?
