Roswell Day Care Abuse and Neglect Attorney

Casey Stevens Represents Victims of Day Care Abuse and Neglect all Over North Georgia

Making the decision to have someone else care for your child is not an easy one, but for many families in north Georgia it is a necessary one. These facilities take on an enormous responsibility and when the children in their care are injured through neglect or abuse, the consequences can be devastating. Georgia law requires that daycare facilities carry insurance to cover their liability in case of accidents, but when a child is abused or injured because of neglect, their families may be entitled to financial compensation for medical care, therapies, replacement care, and pain and suffering.

Abuse can take on many forms – physical, sexual, emotional, and neglect. There is no amount of money that can justify the harm of a child, but a lawsuit can help the family care for their child and punish the facility or individuals responsible. If you fear that your child has been injured because of the care that they received at a Roswell area daycare, contact our office today for a free case evaluation.

There are many different signs to watch for in your child’s appearance or behavior that can alert you to possible abuse. Recognizing these signs and reporting them is crucial in ending abuse. Some warning signs for abuse include:

  • Withdrawal
  • Complaints of pain
  • Explanations of pain that don’t make sense
  • Cuts, abrasions, bruises and lacerations
  • Swelling
  • Vacant or frozen stare
  • Fear when faced with adult contact of any kind
  • Burn marks or scalding
  • Difficulty in walking or sitting

If you discover that your child has been abused at the hands of those entrusted to care for them, you will no doubt feel betrayed, angry, and helpless. Your best retaliation is a legal one, and Casey Stevens can help.

Neglect is the most common form of abuse. Failure to provide the safest environment possible or simply not paying attention to the children can result in serious injuries. The most common daycare safety hazards are:

  • child safety gates
  • window blind cords
  • drawstrings in children's clothing
  • being left on a daycare bus
  • playground surface
  • playground maintenance
  • recalled child products

According to one national study, as many as 65% of the facilities surveyed demonstrated at least one of the above safety hazards.

Client Reviews
After being involved and a five car accident I contacted Casey Stevens law firm. I was given his number by a fellow coworker at my job who had used him in the past and was very satisfied with his services. The car accident included myself my husband and my son, the accident was determined to be the fault of two drivers involved in the accident. Casey personally came to my home the next day and said down with me and my family at the kitchen table and went over all the events of the accident. There were months and months of physical therapy, doctor visits injections and while my son had to have his mouth wired after having his jaw broke in three places. Casey and his staff worked continuously on our case and after it was all said and done, they where able to get us over $300,000 in damages. I really want to Thank Casey Stevens and his staff for always being available for phone calls and answering any questions I might have. I will continue to recommend potential clients to Casey Stevens law firm. Nina F
