What are my options if my 12 year old son was assaulted at school his face was slammed into a wall breaking his front tooth off and he needs a root canal and a new tooth?

Do I have a case against the school for not supervising the children? Pain and suffering and medical bills from school or her parents?

You definitely have a case against the girl's parents and possibly against the school, depending on what was going on at the time of the assault and where the children were -- in a classroom supervised by a teacher?  in a hall with no monitor?  on a playground?  You need to retain a personal injury attorney to possibly pursue a settlement with the school.  Make an appointment with one in your area.
