For mothers and fathers in Florida, nothing can be more upsetting than the injury or death of a child. Even the most vigilant parents sometimes cannot protect their children from the negligent or criminal acts of others. Sons and daughters can be hurt or mistreated at school, on the road, at a day care facility, church group or even by a neighbor, friend or relative.
As the most vulnerable members of our society, children are also the most deserving of protection and legal representation. If your child has been hurt or killed, you will likely have many questions during what is an emotionally difficult time for any family.
We won’t pressure you. We want you to have all the information you need before you hire a lawyer.

In Florida, it is also all too common for children to be hurt as a result of an unattended or poorly trained dog. Dog bites to children can lead to serious injury, scarring or death. Florida’s state laws about dogs are clear and enforce strict liability on owners for a bite that causes injury to a human being. Dogs in FL do not need to have a history of violence to be deemed dangerous, but studies show some breeds are consistently more problematic than others. Numbers say around 4.7 million dog bites occur in the average year. If your child is one of those, you may not need a lawyer but you should know your legal rights prior to hiring a lawyer or filing a suit.
As one of the most difficult issues Florida residents face today, experience counts when dealing with child abuse cases. Parents who put their trust in schools, day care facilities, neighbors, relatives or even their church deserve to know their children will be properly cared for and safe.
