Can you file a lawsuit against a school for the teacher leaving your kid behind when going to a school trip and a stranger driving her to the trip location?

While you may not have preferred the course of events, you have to acknowledge that no physical harm was caused to your child. Perhaps it is something to discuss with the school board. Don't expect to get rich from this event, even though many people have sued for far lesser offenses, the suit is only successful when someone is injured.
