Let a Miami Day Care Negligence Lawyer Help Your Family
Nothing is more heartbreaking and infuriating than discovering that your child was abused or neglected at a daycare you trusted. The situation can leave you bewildered and angry. First, know that you are not to blame. The perpetrators of the abuse and the facility are at fault, and you have the means to hold them accountable.
Brais Law Firm takes immediate action against the daycare providers and the daycare facility responsible for the abuse. Our first priority is to make sure your child is safe and getting the care he or she needs. Our ultimate objective is two-fold: We protect your child’s rights and prevent abuse of other children by exposing the horrific actions of the daycare.
Our Results page gives you information about our credentials and monetary awards for our injured clients.
The daycare is liable for the actions of its workers. We prove the facility was vicariously liable or negligent for:
- Hiring practices that allowed an abuser to have contact with your child;
- Policies that permitted the abuser to spend time alone with your child;
- Failure to take action on suspicions of abusive behavior; and
- Failure to report incidents of child abuse by daycare workers.
Recovering Damages for Your Child
Money will not undo the terrible pain the abuser inflected on your child, but your child deserves every opportunity to heal from the abuse. Our day care abuse attorneys help you recover damages related to your child’s:
- Physical injures, including broken bones, head injuries and contusions;
- Psychological injuries, including depression, anxiety and withdraw;
- Future learning and developmental impairment related to the abuse;
- Psychiatric treatments and counseling;
- Medical treatments and rehabilitation ;
- Disabilities, scarring and deformities; and
- Pain and suffering.
Representing a Child in the Florida Legal Process
The procedures governing representation of a child are very different than for an adult. Our lawyers and staff have experience guiding children and their parents through the legal process.
We recognize that your child has been traumatized and we take steps to minimize any further trauma. Throughout the process, we treat your child with respect and compassion, always putting your child’s needs first.
In addition, we protect your child’s rights to the settlement or verdict award funds. Often, we establish a trust fund to cover your child’s medical and counseling treatments, special educational and developmental needs, and other services and tools to improve your child’s future. For a child with disabilities, we may set up a special needs trust, which protects the child’s right to Medicaid and Social Security benefits.
