Child Injury Guide

Has your child been injured?

What you need to know

This Child Injury Guide is intended as an educational resource which provides general information as to the legal issues faced by parents of injured children under Georgia law. It is not intended to provide legal advice for any specific injury, nor does it create an attorney-client relationship between the reader and James M. Poe. P.C. In cases involving an actual injury, your legal rights and obligations can only be determined after a licensed attorney has reviewed the facts of your particular situation. Injured parties are encouraged to seek legal advice promptly after an injury has occurred. See disclaimer for additional information.

Where Was Your Child Injured?

Different dangers arise in different settings. We examine the specific risks encountered at day care centers, on playgrounds, in schools, while riding in a motor vehicle or while participating in school sports or recreational activities.
