We believe in holding negligent parties accountable, especially when negligence results in the injury of a child.

Potential Causes of Injuries

Childcare injuries are typically caused by negligence on the part of the caretaker. This includes any situation where the caretaker should have acted differently than they did, and this directly led to your child's accident. This includes: 

  • Premises Liability: Daycare facilities and other child care centers are responsible for maintaining a safe environment. When management fails to properly maintain the facility, they could be held responsible for your child's injury. 
  • Lack of Supervision: Improper oversight or failure to supervise altogether can leave your child vulnerable to injury. 
  • Safety Code Violation: Every state has a unique set of laws and regulations which care providers must follow. If these are broken, you could be eligible for compensation. 
  • Improper Training: Accidents happen. If a child care provider does not have the proper training or equipment to properly respond to an emergency, your child can suffer as a result. 
  • Abuse: Unfortunately, many child care injury cases involve some form of deliberate physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. 

Our team can investigate the cause of your child's injury. Because children are often unable to voice exactly what happened to them, we can gather evidence and witnesses to support your claim. 

Our firm has a track record of success with personal injury cases and can guide your family through the legal process from start to finish.

The Importance of Hiring a Lawyer 

In order to file a claim against a care provider, you must be able to prove that negligence, deliberate misconduct, or other factors directly led to your child's injury. A lawyer can help prove: 

  • Breach of Duty: A lawyer can collect evidence that proves that the duty of care was broken. 
  • Causation: A lawyer can help prove that the breach of duty directly caused your child's injury. 
  • Liability: By determining the cause of the injury, a lawyer can point to the party responsible for the event. 
  • Damages: The liable party will be responsible for paying damages, or compensation for medical bills, future rehabilitation, and emotional trauma caused by the injury. 

Because a daycare center, nanny agency, or individual caregiver may be responsible, it is important to hire a lawyer who can examine the evidence and hold the appropriate party accountable. 

What To Do If You Suspect Negligence 

In personal injury cases, filing a case must be done in a timely manner and delaying action could negatively affect the outcome of your case. To help your attorneys build the strongest case possible, we recommend: 

  • Maintaining a record of all paperwork between you and the care provider 
  • Obtaining security footage of the incident, if available 
  • Collecting any medical bills incurred as a result of the injury 
  • Taking photos of the scene and your child's injuries as soon as possible 

Injuries can range from mild wounds and bruises to catastrophic injuries that require lifetime care. Our team can help seek compensation for long-term and other intangible damages in addition to immediate medical care.
