When a child sustains an injury, it can be difficult to understand who is responsible. Every case will have a different defendant and sometimes multiple defendants. Speaking with an attorney is the best way to name the defendant(s) and initiate your case. In a product liability accident, the manufacturer or distributor may be at fault for injuries. In a negligent supervision case, the defendant might be a babysitter or school district. When you trust HawkLaw with your case, we’ll send our team of investigators to the location of the accident to discover who was responsible for your child’s injury.
Once you name the defendant, your attorney will file a claim with the civil courts. Your claim will describe your child’s accident and damages, name the alleged defendant, and state how much you’re demanding in compensation. The defendant will respond to your claim, after which the discovery period will begin. After both parties learn as much as possible about your child’s accident, it will move to mediation. If your case has to go to trial, we have the resources and courtroom experience to negotiate to your best interests. Call 888-HAWKLAW to set up your free consultation* today.
