A 16-year-old Boerne High School student was recently injured while he was attempting to flip a page of a 12-foot yearbook, which was a prop for a school musical. The wooden yearbook, which stood more than twice the student’s height, and weighed about 500 pounds, fell over on top of him.
The accident caused multiple injuries, including a compound fracture of the lower left leg. Another serious injury that the student suffered was to his lower back, where his L3 vertebra was crushed. School officials refuse to accept liability for the accident even though it occurred on school property, but local residents dealing with scenarios like this should know that Austin child injury attorneys can help to obtain compensation for victims of such injuries, whether they occur in the school building, on the playground or even on the school bus.
