Helping Parents Hold Day Care Providers Responsible
Your children are precious to you, and you would do anything to protect them. You trust your children’s day care provider to adhere to proper safety measures, perform background checks on employees, hire people with experience looking after young children, ensure that children are always adequately supervised and more — much more. However, despite your best intentions, research and assurances, the negligence of just one employee can lead to serious injury.
It is every parent’s worst nightmare, but when your child is injured at a Georgia day care because of someone else’s negligence, Cromartie Law is here to help. We independently investigate all cases we take on and pursue the compensation our clients need to get their lives back in order, helping their child and their entire family to recover. Attorney H.L. Rick Cromartie III offers compassionate and personalized service in all types of personal injury cases.
Addressing The Injuries Of Day Care Negligence And Abuse Cases
Our northern Georgia law firm is committed to helping you and your family cope and heal from injury caused by any of the following:
- Lack of supervision
- Child neglect (abuse)
- Inadequate safety standards
- Sexual abuse
We will help you address both physical and emotional injuries. If appropriate, we will seek damages to cover the costs of counseling or psychiatric treatment. We are not afraid or deterred from pursuing your case and protecting your rights in the best interests of your child.
Negligence or abuse can occur at in-home day care, larger private day care centers or even Montessori schools. We will investigate your particular situation with care and accuracy, consulting with appropriate experts when necessary to build the most solid case possible.
Georgia goes easy on child care programs that have been guilty of injury incidents or lapses in care. Typically, a care center is only fined. Rarely is a license revoked. In 2009, Georgia was ranked 49th of 50 states in child care oversight, according to the National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies. In 2011, it ranked 36th. From 2006 to 2010, there were at least 500 reported lapses in care at state day care programs, including serious injuries, deaths and allowing children to wander off unsupervised.
If you have experienced or suspect negligence of any kind at your child’s day care center, it is important to speak with a lawyer who understands the laws and implications of violations right away. We can help you understand your rights and your legal options in all matters.
