Georgia Daycare Injury Attorney
Both partners of our firm, Joel Williams and Chase Elleby, are fathers to young children.
They understand the tremendous courage it takes for a parent to entrust their child to a day care. Although accidents do happen, many injuries are preventable. If a child is left unsupervised, suffers a preventable injury, or is abused by the daycare staff, his or her injuries were likely caused by the daycare’s negligence.
Steps to Take After a Daycare Injury
If your child was harmed at a daycare, you will first want to contact the Georgia agency that regulates daycares, Bright from the Start. They will usually open an investigation and determine whether the daycare violated any state laws or regulations that led to your child’s injury. This information is incredibly useful if you decide to hire an attorney and pursue a civil claim against the daycare.
You will also need to contact an attorney as soon as possible. If negligence can be established, the parent of the child may be entitled to recover damages on behalf of the injured child to help pay for medical bills, pain and suffering, and professional counseling. If the daycare’s conduct was especially egregious, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the daycare for its activities.
