Physical Restraint

The Nonprofit

A school for disabled and difficult students.

The Situation

One of the students began acting out and needed to be physically restrained.

It was subsequently learned that the teacher had not correctly followed take-down procedures, but injuries resulting from the alleged physical abuse were minor.

The Resolution

The parents retained an attorney, and NIA was able to resolve the claim for a very modest sum to be placed into a college trust fund.

No litigation expenses were necessary.
