My daughter's principal insisted I take my daughter to the hospital after she had low blood pressure taken by the school nurse.Is the principal liable to pay the hospital bill?
1 Answer from Attorneys
No the principal won't pay. Low blood pressure could be life threatening. The child could have died. Parents must pay for their kid;s basic needs. Health care is a basic need.
If you want to pursue it consider small claims court. I assume the school district;s attorney will argue that the principal has no duty to pay. Plus under Texas law they are required to report all possible child abuse. A seriously ill child needs medical attention.
Hopefully your child is fine now.
