Day Care Abuse & Neglect

Children are among the most valuable and vulnerable members of our society.  Abuse or neglect at a childcare center can result in physical or emotional trauma to the child and a loss of trust by the parents.  These facilities are governed by laws and regulations designed to protect children.  When childcare centers fail to follow these rules, serious consequences can result.  Abuse and neglect can lead to not only physical injury, but also mental and emotional issues, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression.  Appropriate evaluation and treatment by mental health professionals is often required.  Signs of abuse include unexplained cuts and bruises, headaches or stomachaches with no known medical cause, changes in behavior, and emotional volatility.  If you suspect your child has been injured as the result of day care abuse or neglect, contact us to discuss the legal options available to you.
