Shiner Law Group announced today that it has filed a legal complaint against American Heritage School of Boca Delray, Inc. in the Circuit Court of the Fifteenth Judicial Court of Florida in Palm Beach County, Florida, on behalf of plaintiff Robin Okon, a natural parent of minor Cameron Douglas (Circuit Court of the 15th Judicial Circuit of Florida, 502014CA008576).

According to court documents (Circuit Court of the 15th Judicial Circuit of Florida, 502014CA008576), personal injury lawyers for Shiner Law Group claim that on or about February 4, 2014, Adam Mendelsohn (Mendelsohn), another student enrolled at American Heritage School at the time of the incident, allegedly “exhibited uncontrollable anger and rage against Cameron Douglas”, a minor child of plaintiff Okon.

The complaint further claims that Mendelsohn allegedly used intentional force against Douglas “with the intent to inflict bodily harm and extreme emotional duress”. Additionally, Shiner Law Group alleges in the complaint that Douglas has suffered permanent bodily injury and trauma due to American Heritage School’s alleged negligence to ensure their students’ safety during school hours while on school premises (Circuit Court of the 15th Judicial Circuit of Florida, 502014CA008576).

“Cameron Douglas has undergone multiple brain surgeries due to his injuries,” claims David Shiner, Founding Attorney of Shiner Law Group and legal counsel to the plaintiff. “Douglas and his family have suffered immense hurt and pain, including tremendous financial losses due to medical costs to treat the Douglas’ injuries.”

“We allege that American Heritage School failed to uphold their duty and responsibility to Douglas’ safety and protection,” says Shiner.

“On behalf of Douglas and his family, we intend to seek the proper punitive damages and fight for their legal rights accordingly.”
