All too many children are tragically injured because of carelessness in these settings.
Families should be afforded all resources to heal as best as possible. You can file for a compensation claim if your child has been injured on/due to:
- School buses
- Field trips
- Child sexual abuse
- Day care centers
We hope that our children never fall victim to serious accidents or injuries. Unfortunately, negligent individuals, property owners, and companies cause thousands of children to suffer fatal injuries each year in the United States.
