Unfortunately, abuse and neglect occur in even the best facilities. If you suspect or discover that those you have trusted to care for your child are causing them harm or neglecting them, you should immediately remove the child from the facility, report the abuse, and contact an attorney to discuss your legal rights. A personal injury attorney like Casey W. Stevens can advise you in seeking financial compensation to cover medical care, therapy, and replacement care for your child.

Abuse can be physical, sexual, or emotional and neglect can often result in serious injuries. Recognizing the warning signs of abuse in your child’s appearance or behavior is crucial in stopping it. Some of the more common signs of abuse to watch for include:
- Odd, uncharacteristic behavior
- Explanations of pain that don’t make sense
- Fear when faced with adult contact
- Cuts, abrasions, bruises and lacerations
If your child has been injured or abused due to the care that they received at a daycare facility, you will no doubt feel guilt, anger and frustration. While the temptation to take the law into your own hands is understandable, your best retaliation is a legal one, and our firm can help.
Cases We Handle
Our firm can be of service if your child has been injured by:
- Emotional/Psychological Abuse
Any individual or facility that cares for children is required to carry insurance to cover claims against them for injuries that the children in their care may suffer. While this no doubt protects the facility the regulations imposed by the insurance company ultimately protects their patrons as well. But when neglect or abuse occurs in spite of the precautions taken, the insurance companies have one goal – to spend as little money as possible to cover the claim against their client. They will try to settle your claim as quickly and as quietly as possible. Casey Stevens can help you determine if their offer for settlement will cover the therapies that your child must face as a result of their negligence or abuse.
At the Law Offices of Casey W. Stevens, we understand that your decision to seek financial compensation for your child is fraught with emotions. No amount of money could ever justify the suffering that your child has endured, but a personal injury lawsuit can help you recover compensation for expenses that you will incur for medical care, therapy, and pain and suffering. In many cases, lawsuits close offending facilities down, force policy changes within the facility that caused the injury, or even alter the industry as a whole. Before attending law school, Casey Stevens spent more than a decade on the other side and knows how they operate. He was an insurance claims manager for ten years and it was his job to prevent insurance claims from becoming lawsuits and to settle them for as little as possible. After passing the bar, he spent several more years as a member of a legal defense team that represented insurance companies. Since 2001, he has been using the knowledge he obtained working for the other side to help victims receive the compensation they deserve. When you contact our office, we will arrange for Mr. Stevens to meet with you in any of our six metro Atlanta offices, or if travel is difficult, he can come to your home or hospital room to review your case. After listening to the details of your case he will offer his expert legal opinion about your best course of action regarding your claim. Mr. Stevens does not believe that a victim should be denied representation because of their current financial situation, so all of our cases are done on a contingency basis. We front the money to fully investigate your claim, negotiate with the insurance company of those responsible, and if necessary, argue your case in court. Contact our office today to see how Casey Stevens can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
