Child Injury

Minneapolis & St. Paul Child Injury Lawyers

It can be difficult to trust someone to take care of your child, so chances are you have put a lot of effort researching the best day care of the best school. Perhaps you went through a tedious screening process to find the perfect babysitter.

No matter what you did before entrusting someone with your child, the point is that they have a responsibility and an obligation to ensure that your child stays safe. If your child is injured in their care, you most likely feel overwhelming feelings of guilt, anger, betrayal, and fear. The fact is that it wasn’t your fault because there was no reason why you shouldn’t have trusted the person, organization, or facility caring for your child.

If your child has been injured or lost their life while in the care of another person, facility, organization, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. The first step is to consult with a St. Paul personal injury lawyer who is knowledgeable of the law and can use the facts to achieve results for you.

Hold The Responsible Accountable

Schools, daycares, and childcare providers all have obligations to ensure the safety of children. They act in loco parentis for the time that the child is their responsibility. This means that they have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety and health of the child. At Swor & Gatto, we believe that anyone who works with children has a responsibility that should be taken seriously and they should be held accountable for their mistakes. A civil suit can help you acquire the money that has been lost to the time you have taken off of work, to medical bills, and for the pain and suffering that you and your family have experienced.
