How Could My Child Suffer Abuse in Colorado?
Every parent wants to provide as much personal care for their child as possible. In every situation, though, the parents must sometimes turn to other to temporarily care for their children. Any of these scenarios could result in a caretaker abusing a child.
Caretakers that may be responsible for an injury to a child include, but are not limited to:
- Day care employees;
- Teachers or school officials;
- Church officials;
- Relatives; and
- Nannies or other caretakers.
It can be unthinkable for a trusted caretaker to abuse your child, but the truth is that it happen all too often. The offender may face an arrest and criminal trial, but you can also file a civil suit to compensate you and your child for the injuries sustained as a result. These can cover damages such as medical bills, therapy, lost wages, or pain and suffering.
