Q: If my child was hurt under the care of a Georgia babysitter/daycare/pre-school, can I recover compensation?
When a parent enrolls their child in a daycare or preschool or puts them in the care of a babysitter, their greatest fear is that their child could be injured due to negligence. Unfortunately, injury to a child can happen even when in the care of a professional and if your child is injured while in another person's care, you may need to file a Georgia personal injury claim.
A Fulton County personal injury attorney can review your situation and determine if the injury to your child was caused by the negligence of their caretakers. The main factors of your Georgia personal injury claim include what happened to cause your child's injury and was it a foreseeable hazard that should have been prevented.
