Negligent Supervision of Children
When we entrust our children to teachers, day care providers, scout leaders, coaches, youth ministers, camp counselors, bus drivers, baby sitters and others, we expect them to show the same care and concern for our children's safety and security as we do.
Unfortunately, that doesn't always happen. Every day, children are injured by the very people whose job it is to protect them.
The attorneys at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder, PC, represent clients whose children were physically injured or sexually assaulted while in the care of someone other than their parents. For example, we represented the parents of a two-year-old who crawled into an unattended swimming pool at a day care center and drowned.
Negligent Supervision and Sexual Assault
In cases involving the sexual assault of a child, we not only take legal action against the individual who harmed the child, but also against the school, day care, church or other organization that allowed this activity to take place. In some cases, employers failed to do proper background checks, putting children at risk.
If you or your child suffered a serious injury because of negligent supervision, please contact our law firm as soon as possible to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation. We do not pursue negligent supervision cases for children who sustained the normal bumps and bruises of childhood. We focus on helping families of children who suffered life-altering injuries, like spinal cord injury, brain injury, or wrongful death.
From offices in Bridgeport, Stamford, Danbury and New Haven, Connecticut, our personal injury lawyers represent clients throughout the state.
