Accused of Child Abuse in Collin County?

Children, family members, or exes may contrive child abuse stories to inflict pain on someone. Many may not understand the gravity of what they are accusing, and the law tends to err on the side of the accuser when it comes to child abuse cases. Cases could also be advanced by a school teacher or nurse who notices an injury on a child. Each child abuse case is different and may require a different focus to build a defense.

What is injury to a child in Texas? The Family Code defines this when a person commits an offense if they intentionally, knowingly, recklessly, or with criminal negligence, by act or omission, engages in conduct that places a child younger than 15 years in imminent danger of death, bodily injury, or physical or mental impairment. The abuse involved may involve various forms of abuse, including:

  • Physical or emotional injury
