All parents know that their duties are in equal parts great joy and great responsibility. Parents have the unique opportunity to watch their children grow and teach them about what is important in life. Part of that challenge is keeping those children safe. Parents constantly monitor their children to make sure they are not doing something hazardous or putting small toys in their mouths, touching hot surfaces, or hurting anyone else.
Parents can not always be around their children 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With the ever-rising need for two-income households, most parents return to work just a few short weeks after their children are born. Many of these children are fortunate enough to stay with family members. The rest of families are required to take on the difficult task of finding and sending their loved ones to daycare.
When daycare injuries occur, the results can be devastating because of the injuries sustained, and because of the added concern of continuing to leave your child under the care of another individual. If your loved one has been injured in an accident or incident that occurred at daycare, you need an experienced attorney to represent your interests. For a no-risk initial consultation, contact Colombo Law today.
Negligence in Daycares
Daycares throughout the state are required to hold a license. This means that all day care facilities must complete a licensing process before they begin to care for children. There are additional rules intended to ensure safety of children that must be followed. Failure to comply with these rules, such as being understaffed or leaving children unattended commonly cause injuries to one or more children at the facility.
Injuries related to daycare negligence can always be avoided. When negligence causes minor injuries you may be able to overlook them, such as scrapes and cuts. However, injuries that exceed minimal harm, such as dislocations, broken bones, or internal injuries, can becomes a cause for concern. This is when an investigation and the knowledge of an experienced attorney can help. Our attorneys will assist you by gathering all of the information necessary to hold the daycare provider accountable for your child’s injuries. Proving liability helps our clients obtain relief for the added costs associated with an injury.
