Father Sues Karate School

Father Sues Karate School

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – A father alleges his son’s leg was broken in a karate class in Feb. 2018 is suing the school.

A father sued the school and his son’s training partner, alleging they “negligently” caused his son’s injury.

The suit, filed in state Supreme Court, St. George, seeks unspecified monetary damages.

According to a civil complaint, the plaintiff, a resident listed as “K.B.,” was practicing with another student identified only as “D.D.”

The complaint contends the plaintiff asked the other boy to “stop using a karate move,” but D.D. failed to listen to or hear him.

As a result, D.D. fractured the plaintiff’s leg, even though it should have been apparent he was hurting his partner, said the complaint.

The complaint alleges loud music inside the school distracted the defendant, and instructors didn’t supervise the boys properly.

The suit names the corporate name of the school, as a defendant, along with the workout partner through his mother.

The plaintiff seeks unspecified monetary damages.

New Year Insurance Checklist

Review your martial arts school insurance by asking yourself a few simple questions TODAY to protect your business in the New Year!

Are you launching any NEW PROGRAMS in the New Year? YES__ NO__

Discuss new programs such as Self-Defense Classes, After-School Programs or Day Camps with your insurance agent. If you have not offered the program in the past, make sure your current insurance will cover it!

Do you need to perform any EQUIPMENT Maintenance? YES__ NO__

Make sure all pads, safety gear, and weapons equipment are in good condition. Keeping your school’s equipment is in top condition helps you look better to new prospective students and prevents insurance claims!

Is your location ready for WINTER WEATHER? YES__ NO__

Are you responsible for clearing ice and snow or is your landlord? If you don’t know the answer, ask now! Make sure your school, as well as, the sidewalk and parking lot are safe for your students in the winter weather.

When in the New Year does your INSURANCE renew? DATE________

Be ready for your insurance renewal! Review it 60 to 90 days ahead of time to make sure all of the information that you have provided to your insurance agent is accurate and up to date. Don’t get caught with a claim that you are not covered for by not communicating. In the New Year get a competitive quote if you have not done so recently. You might be able to get more coverage and save money.
