Even if you think you have all the evidence available at your disposal, there are always things that a Texas day care abuse lawyer—who is experienced in bringing claims against abusive day care centers—knows need to be done in order for a case to be successful.
The average citizen simply doesn’t know what’s facing them when it comes to taking action against a day care center. For example, was there a possibility that this child abuse was caught on a surveillance camera at the day care center? Then your attorney will need to send a spoliation letter in order to prevent such evidence from being destroyed. If you fail to do so, the evidence you need to win your case would be forever lost.
Some of the additional ways in which a Texas attorney can help in a day care abuse case include, but are not limited to the following:
- Obtain evidence
- Amplify media coverage (if beneficial to the case)
- Pressure local authorities to act swiftly and appropriately
- Review court records related to any previous cases of abuse
- Send a demand, and attempt to negotiate a fair out of court settlement
- Properly file a strong lawsuit if a settlement cannot be reached
The Research Phase
One of the most important functions a person can perform in a child abuse case is that of research. While a parent or guardian may believe they possess the necessary skills to assess the situation and determine potential guilt, the reality is there are some records that are off limits to the average citizen which makes it difficult for a parent or guardian to develop a rock solid case without an attorney.
For instance, it is unlikely the child care provider is going to turn over records that would put them in a bad light. However, a lawyer is in a position to subpoena those records—a process that legally compels the agency or provider to turn over all requested documentation.
Not only is a lawyer in a position to obtain documentation and records not easily accessible to the average citizen, he or she is also in a position to negotiate with the agency/provider and/or their legal counsel once they are reasonably certain the client’s child suffered abuse.
Certainly a parent or guardian can attempt to engage in negotiations, but it is unlikely anyone but a lawyer will succeed in negotiating an out of court settlement for the simple fact that the day care company’s lawyers are not afraid of you filing a successful lawsuit. These people defend day care centers on a routine basis, and unless they’re afraid of losing to you in court, they have no reason to fairly negotiate.
Lawyers are experienced in negotiating not only out of court settlements, but also presenting the case to a court in just the right manner in order to ensure the best chance at a fair award for the family of the abused child.
