Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Atlanta Daycare Abuse Attorney

As parents, we do our best to provide our children with the best care that we can provide. For many of us, that means carefully selecting the right daycare provider to care for our children while we’re at work. Unfortunately, some daycare providers fail to adequately screen their employees or provide appropriate supervision, and the children are tragically abused. If you suspect that your daycare has abused your child, you need to speak with an Atlanta daycare abuse attorney who knows how to hold these facilities accountable.

Types of Daycare Abuse Children May Face

It is important to recognize that there are many different types of daycare abuse and daycare negligence. Generally speaking, daycare abuse falls into one of three categories: 

  1. Physical abuse
  2. Emotional or psychological abuse
  3. Sexual abuse

Each of these forms of abuse can be difficult to detect – children are prone to falling down and injuring themselves or may be afraid to tell you what happened. In some cases, the child may have even been persuaded to believe that what happened wasn’t wrong. When your child experiences an injury, an Atlanta daycare abuse lawyer can investigate your case and build the evidence you need to protect your child’s future. 

Atlanta Daycare Abuse Lawyer Explains Physical Abuse in Children

Physical abuse includes any physical harm inflicted upon your child such as hitting, kicking, shoving, or knocking them to the ground. The following signs may indicate that your child is the victim of physical abuse: 

  • Unexplained cuts, bruises, welts, burns, or other injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Torn clothing
  • Skin discoloration
  • A pattern of injuries over an extended period of time

Of course, not every injury indicates that they are being abused, but you should pay attention if your child or the daycare cannot explain their injuries or your child seems unwilling to talk about what happened. That said, trust your instincts if you suspect your child is being abused, and contact an Atlanta daycare abuse lawyer right away. 

Emotional and Psychological Abuse of Children

Emotional and psychological abuse can be somewhat more difficult to identify than physical abuse and can include a broad variety of abusive behavior: 

  • Verbally abusing or belittling your child alone or in front of others
  • Terrorizing your child
  • Corrupting or exploiting your child
  • Isolating or restraining your child
  • Rejecting or neglecting your child

Again, your child may not understand this to be abuse or may be unwilling to discuss it with you. As a result, be aware that the following behaviors in your child may indicate that they are being emotionally or psychologically abused: 

  • They seem excessively shy or withdrawn around other children or adults
  • They make harsh, critical comments about themselves
  • They display sudden cruel, aggressive, or angry behavior with little or no provocation
  • They engage in self-harm or other self-destructive behaviors

Children can suffer life-long effects from emotional and psychological abuse suffered while in daycare. An experienced Atlanta daycare abuse lawyer will be able to help you and your child reclaim your lives. 

Sexual Abuse at Atlanta Daycares

No parent ever wants to imagine that their child is the victim of sexual abuse at the hands of their daycare provider. And unfortunately, abusers go to great lengths to hide their actions, threatening your child or otherwise convincing them to not tell anyone about what they are doing. The following signs may indicate that your child is being sexually abused: 

  • Pain or itching in their genitalia
  • Difficulty walking or sitting 
  • Unexplained torn clothing, soiled or bloody underwear
  • Development of an STD
  • Sudden use of sexual language or display or sexual behavior
  • Sudden personality changes
  • Nightmares and other difficulty sleeping

Sexual abuse often results not only in physical harm to the child, but can also cause long-term emotional and psychological trauma. If your child has been sexually abused at daycare, an Atlanta daycare abuse attorney can help you hold the daycare accountable. 

Our Attorneys Holding Daycare Providers Accountable for Abuse

Daycare facilities have a legal obligation to ensure your child’s safety and well-being. Whether they failed to sufficiently screen their employees or were directly involved in the abuse, daycare providers can be held liable for any harm caused by their action or inaction. 

If your child has been abused while at daycare in any way, you may have a legal claim against the daycare, even if they claim that they were unaware that the abuse was taking place. You may be entitled to compensation for the following: 

  • Medical expenses required to treat any physical injuries
  • Expenses for counseling or therapy to treat emotional or psychological trauma
  • Your child’s pain and suffering

In especially egregious cases, you may also be entitled to punitive damages. Finally, it is important to remember that pursuing a claim against your daycare provider not only protects your child’s future but also protects other children from suffering the same abuse.
