Should contact a lawyer if my child suffers an injury?

Was your child’s injury caused by the negligence or carelessness of another person, school, or other group? If so, you need to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Consider the following people we trust to care for our children:

  • Teachers
  • School administrators
  • Daycare staff
  • School bus drivers
  • Other parents
  • Sports coaches

These are people that should always take the steps necessary to keep our kids safe. If they fail in their duties, they could be held liable for any injuries.

Our child’s medical bills are becoming difficult to pay and we cannot afford a lawyer. What are our options?

At Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman, we will work with you. In most cases, we will work on a contingency basis. This means that, as opposed to having to pay us up front, we will get paid after the successful completion of your case as part of the eventual settlement.

This means that you can focus on your child while we get to work on your case.
