Injuries to Children
No one wants to think about their child getting injured. Unfortunately, though, accidents do happen, and sometimes the people and institutions we trust to care for our children are negligent — or worse.
While we hope that your child never experiences a significant injury, especially due to someone else's negligence, you should know what to do if your child is hurt in an accident.
Personal Injury Law and Injuries to Children in Georgia
When adults are entrusted with the care of children, they owe a duty to keep those children safe and to provide a secure environment for them. As a parent, you wish that you could be in all places at all times for your kids, but it simply isn't possible. Thus, you must be able to safely leave your children in the care of others, be it at school, with babysitters, and/or at other institutions outside the home.
