School & Day Care Accidents

San Mateo, Northern San Francisco Bay Area School and Daycare Lawyers Serving Santa Clara County

Two Kids Playing There are endless worries when it comes to bringing a child into this world. We constantly worry about their safety and protection. As parents, we take every precaution and step necessary to ensure that our children are safe. We assume that when we choose care facilities for our children, we are choosing places that will take the same steps as us to ensure their safety. What happens when the very people we tasked with caring for our children are the ones who cause our children to be hurt? At Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P., we have dedicated and experienced trial lawyers eager to accept your case when a care provider negligently allows your child to be endangered.

My Child Was Injured at School by Another Student. Do I Have a Case?

The attorneys at Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P. understand how to pursue cases in which their clients' children are injured by another student while at school. Our lawyers handle cases including:

  • Injuries stemming from bullying
  • Playground injuries resulting from defective equipment
  • Injuries stemming from the negligent supervision of a caretaker
  • Injuries caused by sports or recreational activities at school
Defending the Rights of Children

Choosing a daycare facility is not a choice that parents make lightly. They do their research, ask the questions that they think are important, and make the best decision that their budget will allow. The worst nightmare is getting a call from the child's daycare because there has been an accident. When that accident has been caused by the action or inaction of a care provider, the party needs to be held accountable for its failure and resulting injury.

At Corsiglia, McMahon, and Allard, L.L.P., attorneys have years of experience with protecting the rights of clients' children who have been injured at daycare. It does not matter if the injury was the result of an accident or intentional abuse; it is imperative that parents talk to Bay Area daycare injury attorneys about aggressively defending their rights and pursuing their case when the people who are supposed to take the most care of their children take the least, and as a result, a loved one is injured.

I Had to Sign a Contract to Get My Child Into Daycare. Can I Still Sue?

Some establishments will force their student's parents to sign a contract in order for their child to be admitted to the daycare facility. These contracts may have a provision in them regarding indemnification. Signing one of these contracts is not an absolute bar to suit. Speaking with one of the lawyers at Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P. will help you determine if you have a case.

How Do I Know If the Daycare Was Negligent?

One thing that our lawyers will do when reviewing your case is explain everything that we need to prove in order to get you the best outcome. They will first establish the daycare's duty to protect your child, then examine how the actions or non-actions of a daycare were a direct or proximate cause of your child's injury. Finally, once we have investigated the facts of your case, we will discuss the expectations that we have moving forward with your claim.

Contact us at (408) 289-1417 to schedule your consultation and speak with our experienced and compassionate attorneys at Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P. Let us help you protect the rights of your child after an injury at school or daycare.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
