When you can’t watch your child because you have work or other commitments, it’s likely you’ll choose to send your child to daycare. It can be hard to find the right facility to trust with the care of your child even though there are regulations to ensure proper care. Daycare centers in Kentucky fall under legislation that requires them to be safe for children and treated properly.

Unfortunately, not all facilities follow those rules and regulations. In 2018, 50 children were found to be abused or neglected in Kentucky daycare facilities. While that might sound like a small number compared to the over 30,000 children in daycare in our state, even one instance of abuse or neglect is too many.

A broken bone is an injury that causes pain and requires plenty of attention on its own. When there is a more serious injury that either caused or was caused by the bone fracture, though, there can be even more pain and recovery time to handle. Since there are over one million bone fractures every year in our country, it’s important for you to know what else the break could mean.

At Golden Law Office, we understand that a broken bone can cause more problems than just pain. Unexpected medical bills, lost wages, and the emotional toll can put a strain on your life and relationships just as much as the physical pain. Our experienced lawyers in Lexington are prepared to fight for you and help you get back to your normal life.

There are a number of uncertainties that coincide with an accident. The most pressing is often when you’ll be able to return to your normal way of life.
