When an accident or injury arises involving a child, the impact it can have on the family is devastating. While sympathy and assistance from friends and family members are often appreciated, it does not take away the pain that you and your child are feeling and it does not eliminate the financial consequences of the accident. If you or someone you know has a child that has been injured in a daycare accident, call Colombo Law for a risk-free initial consultation today.
Depending on the injury, there are different types of personal injury claims that may be pursued:
- Negligence: Negligence claims are one of the most common filed by personal injury attorneys. A negligence claim may be asserted against individuals who breach a standard of care that a reasonable person with a similar professional background would have provided under the same circumstances. This will require a detailed review of the nature and extent of the injury and whether the injury was foreseeable. Some foreseeable injuries may include playground accidents or trip and falls.
- Wrongful Death: Each year there are fatal consequences of accidents at a daycares across the United States. When a daycare accident due to negligence results in a fatality, you need to speak with an attorney about the possibility of filing a personal injury claim against the facility.
- Premises Liability: Where certain hazards exist that cause injuries to your child, there may be a claim for premises liability. This is because property owners have a legal obligation to ensure that their property is kept in a condition that protects occupants from injury. This becomes especially important when children are on the premises.
