A claim for negligent supervision is a type of legal claim that arises when an individual is injured or suffers damages as a result of inadequate supervision by an employer, supervisor, or other responsible party. In order to succeed in a negligent supervision claim, the person bringing the claim (the plaintiff) must be able to prove that the defendant had a duty to provide adequate supervision and that this duty was breached by failing to exercise reasonable care in the supervision of the plaintiff or others. The plaintiff must also show that the breach of this duty was the cause of the injuries or damages suffered.

Negligent supervision claims can arise in a variety of contexts, such as in the workplace, in schools, or in other settings where individuals are under the supervision of others. These claims may be brought against employers, supervisors, or other individuals or entities who have a duty to provide supervision and who fail to exercise reasonable care in the performance of this duty.

These claims are most commonly brought as a result of negligent supervision of a minor who has been entrusted to an organization such as a camp, school, or day care. When that organization fails to reasonably supervise the child and the child is injured, a claim for negligent supervision should be brought.
