Minneapolis & St. Paul Child Injury Lawyers
Finding someone you trust to care for your child can be challenging. Chances are you’ve put a lot of effort into researching the best daycare or 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, they have a responsibility and an obligation to keep your child safe. If your child is injured in their care, it’s common to feel 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, or 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, meaning they legally need 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 held accountable for their mistakes. A civil suit can help you acquire the money lost due to the time you have taken off of work, medical bills, and the pain and suffering you and your family have experienced.
