THe mother can pursue a personal injury claim for your granddaughter based on the theory of negligent supervisiion. It is a difficult case to prove, but not impossible. Assuming this is a public school and not a private or parochial schhol, if a claim against a municipality, a written notice of claim must be personally served on the appropriate governmental body within 120 days of the event, or otherwise, the claim would be forever barred. Since there are some very strict rules and time lines for making the claim, I would highly recommend hiring  a pesonal injury lawyer to make claim for the injury and medical expenses, and that way, the claim will be properly pursued and the timelines followed. The overall statute of limitations is three years to sue for personal injury in WI, but this statute, can shorten the time, if a formal disallowance of the claim is received, shortening the time line to file  a lawsuit to 6 months.

Personal injury lawyers work with the victims of all kinds of accidents, including auto accidents, motorcycle crashes, truck crashes, boating accidents, plane crashes, workplace injuries and railroad accidents. You should also hire a personal injury attorney if you've been injured as a result of dental or medical malpractice, a defective product, nursing home abuse, a slip and fall accident on someone else's property or a dog bite. Your personal injury law firm can help you collect money to pay for medical expenses, temporary or permanent disability, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other injury-related expenses.
