Filing a lawsuit may be one of your options if your child has been the victim of daycare abuse. Abuse in daycare can take many forms. An attorney experienced with these cases will be able to help you to make good determinations about how to proceed and if you have a lawsuit that may win.
Filing a lawsuit is never a small undertaking. First and foremost, you’ll have to have a claim that has a good chance of winning. If you work with a lawyer on contingency, you can be sure that they believe that your case has a good chance. Contingency agreements require that the attorney wins your case if they’re to get paid. If they don’t win, they don’t get any legal fees from you at all. This ensures that an attorney cannot pursue your case just to collect legal fees, even if they know it’s likely to lose.
You’ll also need to consult with your attorney about any limitations that may apply regarding filing your suit. There are states that have specific time limits on how long after the fact you can sue for daycare abuse or daycare negligence. If you’re debating whether or not to file a lawsuit, contact an attorney to see how much time you actually have to think the matter over. It may turn out that you need to make a decision faster than you thought.
