While lawyers and judges are the ultimate legal experts, of course, I believe that every citizen should take the time to learn a little about law for several reasons. First, it is important to know your rights, and knowing them can come in handy if anyone ever accuses you of a crime you didn't commit or threatens you legally in another other way. Second, learning about your local, state, and federal laws can help you act as a better citizen. When election time comes around, you can then truly understand ever change in law being proposed by a candidate and whether it benefits society or not. I plan to share posts about law topics explained in plain English on my new blog, so you can come back often to sharpen your legal knowledge!
As a parent, you might have carefully chosen a daycare facility to take your child to, and you might think that you should be able to trust the daycare to provide your son or daughter with the best possible level of care. Unfortunately, though, there is the possibility that your child could be injured while at daycare. If this happens, then you might need to take legal action by hiring a personal injury lawyer. These are a few examples of times when you might need to contact one of these attorneys.
Your Child Was Injured By Another Child
In some cases, children can harm one another, either unintentionally or intentionally. If your child was injured in a fight with another child, for example, you might be able to take legal action. After all, this could be a case of negligence on the part of the daycare, since the daycare workers are supposed to properly supervise all of the children in their care. A personal injury lawyer can talk to you a little more about what happened and can help you determine if taking legal action makes sense.
Your Child Was Injured While Playing Outside
Not only are you supposed to be able to count on the workers at your child's daycare to keep an eye on how the children are interacting with one another, but you are also supposed to be able to count on them to supervise how children are playing with play equipment when they are outdoors. You should also be able to count on the daycare facility to have safe outdoor gear for kids to play on. If your child was injured due to dangerous outdoor play equipment or lack of supervision when playing outside, it might be time to call a personal injury lawyer.
An Employee Has Injured Your Child
Hopefully, you should never have to worry about a daycare employee injuring your child. After all, you should be able to rely on these employees to take the best possible care of your child when you are not around. However, there are some cases where abuse does happen in daycare settings. If you have any reason to suspect that a daycare worker might have intentionally physically harmed your child in any way, then you should contact the local authorities as soon as possible. After all, the authorities might press criminal charges against the daycare worker in question. Additionally, however, you can hire a personal injury lawyer to help you with taking action against the worker and the daycare.
