Daycare Abuse and Negligence in Georgia

Daycare Abuse and Daycare Negligence

Has your son or daughter been the victim of neglect or child abuse by their daycare teacher or provider?

Call 470-315-0866 to speak with a Georgia attorney about your case, and get an explanation about the options available to you.

For many parents, the terrible reality of daycare abuse and neglect can be almost too much to handle. Our Georgia daycare abuse lawyers are painfully aware that even figuring out whether your child was abused can be difficult. Hurt children often don’t want to talk about their experience, or they are too young to communicate what happened.

As a concerned parent, you may not be ready to contact a daycare abuse law firm, but please understand that as each day passes, your potential claim may be getting more-difficult to pursue.

We strongly recommend that you call us today and discuss the facts of your case so that we may advise you on your potential legal options. The call is free, the consultation is free, and if we feel that we can help you with your case, we do so for no up-front cost. In other words, if we do not successfully recover money in your case, you literally pay us nothing.

Do you believe your child has been abused or mistreated?

As an experienced Georgia daycare abuse lawyer I believe that every child deserves to be protected and cared for by responsible adults.  I provide immediate and aggressive legal help for families of children hurt by abusive or neglectful child care providers. If you suspect that any type of abuse or neglect has occurred, I urge you to contact us or call us at 470-315-0866 as soon as possible for immediate help with your case.

Do you know the signs of daycare abuse or neglect?

Children can be abused physically, emotionally or sexually by daycare workers or other child care providers like nannies, babysitters, family members or teachers.  If you are worried that your child may have been injured, hurt, harmed or neglected by their child care provider, look out for these signs:

  • Unusual cuts, scrapes, bruising, tenderness to touch, bite marks, or soreness

  • Behavioral changes or extreme mood swings.

  • Regressive behavior such as refusing to talk or reverting to baby talk, thumb sucking, separation anxiety, clinging, rocking, head banging, or biting.

  • Sudden sleep problems like bed-wetting, nightmares, etc.

  • An unusual interest in sexual matters or sexualized behavior.

  • Sudden aggressive or rebellious behavior problems.

  • Fear or anxiety about going to the daycare provider.

  • Fear of certain activities, people or places.

What should you do if you suspect child abuse or neglect?

If you believe that your child may be experiencing abuse at their daycare, then it is time to take action.  Don’t be afraid to speak up and contact an Atlanta daycare abuse lawyer if you suspect mistreatment – it is better that you address the issue head-on than let it affect your child’s life any longer.  Here are the steps to take when you suspect daycare abuse:

  • Take your concerns to your child’s doctor. Pediatricians and family doctors are trained to notice signs of abuse, and they can help you evaluate your situation.

  • Talk openly and honestly with other parents at your daycare or child care provider and find out if they have noticed anything similar.

  • If you still suspect daycare neglect or abuse, report it! You can call the Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-422-4453, and you can also contact your state’s child abuse organization or your local police department.

  • The Georgia Department of Human Resources’ Division of Family and Children Services directs those who wish to submit a report of child abuse or neglect to the DFCS Child Protective Center at 1-855-GACHILD (1-855-422-4453).

  • Additionally, the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) directs those who wish to file a complaint about a child care program to contact Bright from the Start at (404) 657-5562.

Our daycare abuse lawyers have represented families who have experienced all types of horrific neglect & abuse.

  • Broken bones caused by daycare abuse;

  • Children left unattended in buses and vans for long periods of time;

  • Near drowning cases because teachers and aides were not paying attention;

  • Death and near-death experiences caused when an unattended child swallows foreign objects.
