David Daggett Speaks to WFMY News 2 on Discipline, Abuse, Family & The Law

September 16th, 2014 Child Abuse,Public Relations

On Friday, September 12th, the National Football League was once again rocked by news that star player Adrian Peterson had surrendered himself to authorities in Texas pending charges of Reckless or Negligent Injury to a Child. Peterson is alleged to have harshly disciplined his four year-old son to the point that medical intervention became necessary.

In light of these developments, Greensboro’s own WFMY News 2 turned to the experts to help shed some light on this complicated issue.

David Daggett of Daggett Shuler Law and Susan Spidell, Director of Piedmont Support Services of North Carolina appeared on WFMY News 2 to speak with anchor Frank Mickens and offer their insights.

In the clip below, you can watch David Daggett and Susan Spidell discuss when the line between “discipline” and “child abuse” is crossed, and what role, if any, corporal punishment should play in our society today.

 

After my car accident, the amount of paperwork became overwhelming and quite stressful to keep up with. I contacted Daggett Shuler and was immediately put at ease. The meeting was set up very promptly and we were told to not worry and let them handle the details.

Once the portal was set up, I received frequent updates. If I had questions that could not be addressed by email, I would receive a phone call. I never felt rushed or that my questions were not important.

Upon completion of my case, I felt that everything had been done to ensure a proper outcome of my situation. Everyone in the office is polite, respectful and professional. I would highly recommend Daggett Shuler. They made a difficult time in my life much easier to deal with.
