Child Advocacy Lawyers
There are thousands of young children injured every day from supervisor’s negligence, companies’ oversight, etc. If your child has been injured as a result of someone’s carelessness or possibly even an intentional act, you have every right to seek compensation for current and future pain and suffering. Our Troy child advocacy attorneys offer free consultations to help you better understand your child’s rights.
There are several sets of guidelines and daycare regulations established by New York State for schools, daycares, summer camps and other forms of child care services. Our child injury lawyers feel it is their duty to provide assistance to the families of suffering children who have been harmed due to someone’s negligence.
Keeping thorough documentation of the events, injuries and doctor visits is key to a successful case. In addition, detailed photographs of the injured areas and scarring should be taken soon after the event due to the fact that they will heal and fade with time. Another important piece of information that parents or guardians should obtain is an estimate of potential future medical expenses from qualified experts. In order for your child to recover quickly and properly, he or she may require physical therapy, special education, extensive medical treatment, adaptive treatment or more.
That being said, our experienced New York child injury lawyers stress the importance of never settling a case too early. Doing so may limit the family to collecting a less-than-fair amount of compensation, which may cause the inability to pay for necessary medical expenses. An injured child deserves the proper representation from a dedicated child injury lawyer. We here at Martin, Harding and Mazzotti, LLP understand it is a very difficult time for you and your family. Let us offer aggressive representation against all liable parties that may be responsible for your injured child.
Injuries at School
All children should be able to learn, grow and explore their environment, carefree. But what happens when a child suffers an injury as a result of a staff member’s carelessness? Sudden accidents can be caused by a variety of situations involving defective toys, organized sports injuries, unsafe playgrounds, and even dangerous property conditions. Our school injury lawyers want to help defend your family, so your child can receive the compensation they deserve.
It is an extremely delicate situation if your child has been injured as the result of someone’s negligence; many factors must be considered when negotiating a settlement with the defense. A few of these factors include, but aren’t limited to:
- Current and future medical bills
- Potential psychological counseling
- Any related costs associated with the incident
- Physical rehabilitation
- Financial support
Nationwide, believe it or not, there are a number of daycare centers and private schools that operate without a valid license, meaning they lack oversight by any government entity of their facilities. While not all of these unlicensed centers have poor supervision or are unsafe for children, you may be putting your child at a greater risk by attending one of these facilities. That being said, when deciding upon which daycare center or school to send your child to, please do extensive research on their licenses, staff, safety procedures, cleanliness of play area, etc.
