Angry my boy broke his leg at school friday, WTF!

broke it fri at 2:50pm, rushed to UKMC had surgery today.. He broke the growth plate off the femur. which is not good. good chance his leg will not grow correctly. growth is bout 1cm per yr until 16yrs, he's 10 now.

I am beyond pissed at school, what wld u do if it was ur child?

where was the teacher? who knows?
story is he and few other boys where running and launching off one bench over another, after running at full speed to launch, his foot went between the beams of the first bench, inertia did the rest..

Has anyone given you any prognosis about physical therapy?

Consult a lawyer about the school paying for it. I'm not saying stick it to the bastards. Just know your options.

I know sort of what you're going through, I broke my femur at 2 places when I was 4 yrs old, quite a worry for my parents thinking my leg was going to be offset, but I never had an issue since. I just did physical therapy for 6 months or so after the cast was off.

I'm sorry man. I hope his recovery goes a lot better than expected.

PT is the way to go with this. Correct bone growth can be fixed. I hope everything goes well.

They can lengthen the leg bone later on down the road, as he grows. It would require several more surgeries, but it can be done. They've got midgets almost a foot taller by breaking the bones, and setting them a little further apart each time. Over time, adding several inches.


I hope he has a speedy recovery and all of that isn't necessary.. Sometimes the human body will surprise and amaze you..

I wouldn't sue the school, boys are boys, and it's cruel to put them in a straight jacket in a padded room, and thats about the only way the school could have ensured that your boy wouldn't be an idiot and hurt himself. On the other hand, the school's insurance should pay for any medical care, since it happened on their premises.

----------

On a side note, Bet he won't do that again!

I agree. He could have done that anywhere and with anyone but that doesn't make them liable. A school can only do so much to protect a kid while still letting them grow and have fun. Sounds like an accident to me... plain and simple.

Look I'm sure ya'll are right, but he doesn't want to hear that. He is concerned about his son and his recovery. So it's probably best just to wish him and his son the best and let it go. He can handle this how he sees fit.

I'm pretty sure he asked for opinions in his original post, and stated he was upset with the school for letting it happen. While I wish him and his boy the best, I don't condone blaming others for what they are not at fault for, so I will be a voice of reason.

He asked for advice so we gave it to him. No one was being mean about it so relax a little.

Lot of good stuff here , If it was my Son , been there long ago lol !!! But your boy IS the most important . NEVER do things in anger !

Take care of your son , wait for the doctors to get done and see how He is in a few weeks . Kids are very resilient .

I'm sure that there are things to think about , You can figure them out later . I'll bet everyone feels terrible about this as well . If not , well then , they are not normal LOL !

Keep us informed ????

I'll say a prayer for Your boy as well ...

Please don't sue. It will just hurt the kids who play sports, are in band, and other activities. It will just hurt them by taking away the money they need for all of these activities. So, instead of hurting the people who let this happen it will hurt your boy and his friends.
