School & Daycare Accidents

Representing Clients for School & Daycare Accidents

Most parents would like to assume that their child’s safety is of high importance at their chosen school or daycare facility. The promises made by these learning centers often include provisions for proper health and wellness and a “one-of-a-kind learning environment” centered around the child’s safety and stability. This tactic allows parents to rest easier knowing that their child is in the hands of a trusted school employee. But when the facility lacks the staffing or even the resources to follow through with these basic necessities, the children are often the ones left to suffer the dangerous (and sometimes even fatal) consequences.

If you are a parent and your child has been injured as the result of a negligent third party, we understand that you are likely seeking more than just answers. You are probably seeking justice for your child’s pain and suffering, as well as the financial and medical assistance that only a qualified attorney from Proner & Proner can secure on your behalf.
