Children are the most valuable resource in society. Our future generations represent the future of our fellow man, precious gifts to humanity. Unfortunately, some people in our community charged with caring for innocent and vulnerable kids are evil or grossly careless.

There are many ways in which children can be at risk. Issues may arise with people entrusted to watch or care for your kids. Other risks may not seem as pending. Such things as rabid dogs or even speeding cars are all death threats to a tike. Children and their parents should get prepared for what comes next.
No matter what the reason or cause, parents can feel an invasion of trust any time a child is taken advantage of.
This innocence broken can take shape in many forms.
A working family has enough to worry about and never wants to face a terrible child injury causing significant financial, emotional, or time issues for their loved ones. But parents must be ready to deal head-on, and our lawyers can help.
All of these could cause a tremendous strain on your family. If you face a child-related injury caused by another’s negligence or intentional act, you must take steps to end the abuse. These problems can spring out of seemingly nowhere.
Documenting and preparing evidence of what happened can be an essential first step. It would be best if you had an advocate who can work with you every step of preparing. But to do that, you must:
Determining what damage your child suffered will be valuable in court to determine if monetary damages should be compensated.
Your child can also recover from the pain and suffering that accompanied those injuries. If the child had a job:
In some cases, a parent can recover as a:
So depending on the severity of their precious child’s injuries, the mounting bills for medical care could grow to monumental proportions. Most families will be unable to provide 24-hour nursing care. That is often necessary in cases like this.
Direct medical costs you may now face will mean money upfront. Having an attorney to sign a medical lien for the injured victim goes a long way towards achieving top doctor care and the ability to pay immediate bills for necessary living expenses. Of course, when a lawyer investigates, it moves the case along.
So hard work upfront means that a parent can settle the situation sooner. At least, they will have a set amount of money. In any event, now they know what will be there for their child’s lifetime care and expenses. The facts of the case are what make the difference.
In some unfortunate cases, the actions of the tortfeasor result in death. When this occurs, parents are entitled to recover monetary damages for the loss of love, affection, and joy the dead young one once brought them. In California, recovery for this type of harm comes from related wrongful death and survivor’s statutes.
It is also possible for a parent to recover from the child’s torment right up until the moment of the passing. But where to file the action and how to prosecute is within the purview of an excellent lawyer.
Young people assaulted by a trusted person or stranger have many issues to face, making a terrible situation far worse. Some kids will remain silent out of familial shame.
So this could be a very expensive and emotionally costly process. No monetary settlement can ever actually solve this issue. But compensation could help pay for the high costs of such a recurring issue. Also, this can help both young and old deal with this stressful time.
But no amount of monetary token will fully repair the damage and ruination done to an abused little cub. But justice in the form of punitive and general damages will help the parents mitigate some of the newfound expenses and mental issues. These will crop up from these types of cases.
So by law, teachers and admin must report and investigate these crimes. But more and more, we see schools fighting for the collective bargaining rights of the abuser. So do you trust unions seeking pensions to stand tall for the rights of victims?
The same goes for making sure to conduct adequate background investigations. More and more, public school teachers, in particular, have made themselves adversaries of parental rights.
