Permission Slips Not Legally Binding?

Most people assume that if they have signed a permission slip for their child to go on a school field trip, it relieves the school from anything that might go wrong. This is not necessarily the case - if the bus transporting the kids is involved in an accident, the school is still responsible for any resulting injuries. If your child is involved in an accident while on a school trip, don't make the automatic assumption that the permission slip you signed prevents your child from claiming compensation - even if the school claims immunity, consult a lawyer.
