    Hi, in 1973 I was pushed over a school desk by my maths teacher & I hit my back on the desk behind me. I had a sore back for a number of weeks & have suffered from pain in the general area for the past 41yrs later. I now have Arthritis at the injury site. Would I have any comeback on the school or school teacher?

    I suspect that you are "out of time" to make a claim,
    but you should seek the advice of a specialist personal injury lawyer in your state.

    Assuming for a moment that you are not time barred from making a claim,
    then your prospects of success depend on how much evidence you have
    (belief, no matter how strongly held, is not evidence).
