Almost every day there’s a news story about children being abused in a day care center. At Dollar, Burns & Becker, we believe there is absolutely no excuse for abuse of any kind with children entrusted to someone’s care. When you retain us to handle your case, you’ll find us compassionate yet aggressive in the pursuit of accountability for those responsible for injuries or even death.
We also go beyond our cases of day care abuse to advocate for reform and new laws and regulations to keep children in a day care setting safe. If you want representation that extends beyond the courtroom, contact Dollar, Burns & Becker.
Our experienced attorneys stand ready to help those who know of a family member or friend injured in any of these types of settings:
Whether the situation involves child care abuse, negligence resulting in a fall or other injury, or improper training leading to an accident or physical abuse, we know how to investigate these incidents to expose exactly what happened, who is responsible, and the extent of the injuries incurred by your child or disabled friend or family member.
Often, facilities do not conduct proper background checks or proper training and fail to properly supervise children and their care providers. If an employee has a history of committing emotional, physical, or sexual abuse, we hold not only the employee liable, but also his or her employer for hiring the person in the first place. Centers that care for adults are regulated by the state, just like nursing homes. Our attorneys are well-versed in these regulations. We also have longstanding relationships with leading experts in the field who can help us conduct investigations, including gathering witness statements and proving noncompliance with state licensing regulations.
Along with this information, we will also research the insurance coverage relevant to your claim. We will advise you of the options and help you pursue a course of action that takes into account your goals and financial needs to help your injured loved one properly heal.
If a friend or loved one has suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of abuse in any type of care facility, contact us to schedule a free consultation as soon as possible, ideally within 48 hours. We’ll immediately take action to ensure that vital evidence is preserved that can be crucial to your claim.
