Considering legal action against your child’s day care due to suspected abuse of a child?
While it’s ultimately up to police whether or not criminal charges are pursued in cases of daycare abuse, you may still be able to file a civil claim against the daycare facility in order to seek compensation for the damages your family suffered.
The majority of the time somebody files a lawsuit against a daycare facility for child abuse, they’re suing over 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.
Why you should consider 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 when you call 1-877-405-4313.
If you find a daycare abuse law firm that takes cases on contingency (like we do at Rasansky Law Firm), this process won’t cost you anything and you never pay a dime unless we actually win your case. Seriously. If for some reason we cannot negotiate a fair settlement or lose your case at trial, you literally owe us nothing.
Pursuing a daycare abuse lawsuit.
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 us and discuss your case in the broadest terms. We may be able to decide right away if we can help with your case, however in many situations, we may need to do some additional work before we 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 many cases, the facility that you are suing may decide that they want to offer you a settlement instead of going to court. This is not always the case of course, and even then, you’ll need to prove up your damages and draft a formal demand in order to have any shot at negotiating a fair settlement. If you have hired an attorney who has successfully sued daycare providers in the past (like we have many times before), you stand a far-better chance at getting a fair settlement offer or wining your case at trial.
