If my daughter's tooth was broken at school by another classmate, who should pay the bill?
Question Details: My child was walking to the bus at the end of the school day and one of her friends hit her on accident with a water bottle breaking my child's front tooth in half. Who is responsible for the bill?
If it was the sort of accident you describe, you are, unfortunately.
1) The child's parents/guardians are not liable because there was no legal fault. There is fault only if the person was negligent, or unreasonably careless: less careful than a reasonable person of his/her age should be. But what you describe does not sound like the child was being unreasonably careless for/as a child; accidents do happen, and when the the other person was not doing anything wrong, they are not at fault.
2) The school district would only be liable if they were being unreasonably careless in how they supervised the students, but that does not appear to be the case: there does not seem to be any amount of reasonable supervision that would have stopped or prevented this.
