If your child is abused in a daycare facility, the most important thing that you have to do is to make sure that the abuse is brought to a halt. This means making sure that law enforcement gets involved and that your child is removed from the facility. In all likelihood, it won’t be long before law enforcement shows up and wants to start pressing charges against the parties responsible for the abuse. Finding a lawyer to help you with a lawsuit against the facility is also an option.
Why Contact a Lawyer?
The costs of daycare abuse involve financial costs as well as emotional and physical ones. The expenses of providing care for a child that has been abused can be considerable. When a child has been physically abused, you may need to bring them to a physician many times to take care of the issue. If your child needs emotional support, hiring a counselor can be very expensive, as well.
By helping you with a lawsuit, a lawyer can help your family to pay for the costs of dealing with the abuse that your child has suffered. In some cases, the lawyer may be able to win enough compensation with one of these lawsuits to provide a great deal of care for you and your family and to ensure that you’re not left without enough money to take care of your family’s needs.
Finding a Good Attorney
A good attorney will be able to prepare your family to deal with court with great compassion and be exceptionally aggressive when pursuing your interests against the defendant. The attorney will make sure that you don’t end up getting intimidated out of suing by the defendant’s counsel and that, if the other side decides to offer a settlement, you get an acceptable amount in exchange for dropping your lawsuit.
Competent legal counsel doesn’t have to be terribly expensive. In addition to this, you can sometimes get legal counsel that won’t charge you upfront fees. Look for a daycare abuse lawyer who is willing to work on contingency. These attorneys allow you to pursue your daycare child abuse case without charging you any fees unless they win your case. If they win, you pay. If they lose your claim and you receive no money for a settlement, you owe the attorney nothing, which is obviously the best possible arrangement for the client!
