18 Questions To Ask A Dallas Daycare Negligence And Abuse Lawyer

As I write this article, Becky’s Child Home Care insurance adjusters are probably devising strategies to offer quick, cheap settlements to the families of children who were neglected and abused during their time with Rebecca Anderson. The insurance company does not want the victims’ families contacting lawyers, learning their full legal rights, or having their company's unsafe practices again placed under the microscope by legal teams.

Instead, they are going to begin reaching out to the affected families and claim to be willing to do whatever is necessary to make it right. Rebecca Anderson must be held fully accountable in the suffering of these children and their families.  

The Importance Of Hiring A Daycare Negligence and Abuse Lawyer

While you can hire a lawyer at any point in the process, the sooner a skilled attorney is involved, the more help they will be able to provide. You will want someone with experience handling daycare negligence and abuse cases. Likewise, you are going to want someone who treats you like a person and not just a file number.
