Organizations that are entrusted with the care of children have a legal responsibility to supervise their employees and others who come in contact with children in their care. Sadly, not every school, sleep away camp, day care provider, church, synagogue or youth group in New York exercises proper oversight, resulting in injuries, assaults or worse.
Children who have been victimized in these ways may be entitled to compensation for their losses and suffering. If your child or family member was harmed while under the care of someone legally responsible for his or her safety, call Morgan Levine Dolan, P.C., today at 212-785-5115.
