Considering legal action against your child’s day care due to suspected abuse of a child?
There are instances when you may be able to file a claim against the daycare facility for damages related to daycare child abuse. Obviously, if the abuse was severe, this is something that will be done after the authorities have intervened and made sure that it came to a halt.
Most of the time, when somebody files a lawsuit against a daycare facility for abuse, they’re suing for negligence on the part of the facility. These cases involve instances where a daycare facility failed in their obligation to keep your child safe, which resulted in injury to your child. This can be due to the daycare not adequately screening their employees and hiring a known abuser, allowing abuse to continue when they should’ve stopped it, failure to supervise, etc.
Talking to a lawyer.
Because there may be time limitations on how long you have to file a claim or lawsuit, you’ll want to contact a daycare abuse law firm as soon as possible. Don’t wait until you are sure that you want to sue; it may actually be too late by the time you do so. The attorneys at Rasansky Law Firm are more than happy to discuss the facts of your case (and your options moving forward) free of charge. If you are working with a law firm that takes cases on contingency (like us), this consultation won’t cost you anything, and you never pay a dime unless you collect. Seriously. If we cannot win your case (or negotiate an agreed-upon settlement), you literally owe us nothing.
Working with lawyers.
Your lawyer will need to know the details of your case; but if you don’t have them all together for the consultation, don’t worry too much about that. You can still meet with them and discuss the case in the broadest terms. They may be able to decide right at this consultation whether or not they want to take you on as a client. In many cases, however, they may need to do some additional work before they can make that determination.
If an attorney does decide to take on your case, you may or may not have to go to court to have your case heard. In some cases, the facility that you are suing may decide that they want to offer you a settlement instead of going to court. This will usually only happen if they are fairly certain that they will lose the case if they take it all away to a jury trial. If you have hired an attorney who has successfully sued daycare providers in the past (like we have), you stand a far better chance at getting a fair settlement offer or wining your case at trial.
