There is no greater tragedy than the injury or death of a child. It is a devastating event for the entire family. When a child suffers injury, parents often feel helpless and don’t know where to turn. At Marcereau & Nazif, we seek to provide as much comfort as possible to families in their time of need, and work tirelessly to get justice for their loved one.
Child injury cases require a special level of attention and legal expertise. We are skilled attorneys with experience in numerous types of child injury cases, including school and playground accidents, teacher/caregiver abuse, and auto/bus accidents involving children.
We understand that children have different needs than our adult clients, and believe in working closely with parents and guardians to ensure that these needs are met.
Below are some recent results we obtained on behalf of children and their families:
$1.3 million settlement for a child partially blinded in one eye caused by classroom horseplay in Orange County. We alleged the teacher ignored the horseplay and allowed it to continue, then failed to provide adequate care after the injury occurred.
$1.2 million settlement for a student seriously injured in a school playground accident in San Francisco. We proved that the school failed to provide sufficient padding underneath playground equipment, which caused the injury.
$500,000 for child who had been groped by an after-school tutor in Contra Costa County. We proved that the after-school program ignored red flags of prior, inappropriate behavior by this tutor with other students.
$100,000 settlement for child who was discriminated against and ridiculed by her second grade teacher in the San Francisco Bay area, causing her extreme anxiety. As a result of our lawsuit, the teacher was terminated.
Extremely favorable settlement (confidential) from private education fund regarding negligent retention of tutor who sexually molested two students.
