Day Care Centers & Child Injuries
Many injuries at day care centers are minor: bumps, scratches and bruises that will quickly heal and soon be forgotten. If your child has suffered a minor injury, you should count yourself lucky. If you feel the day care center should have done more to prevent the injury, you should consider changing providers. However, there is no need to involve the civil justice system unless your child has suffered a serious injury.
Examples of serious injuries include broken bones, head injuries (i.e. concussions), injuries requiring hospitalization and/or surgery, child abuse and/or molestation, and instances in which a child wanders away from a facility.
Serious injuries are more common at in-home day care centers rather than commercial day care centers. Most injuries are caused by a lack of supervision and/or negligent hiring.
Day Care Centers & SIDS
Infant deaths from sudden infant death syndrome have dropped since the early ’90s when parents were first advised to put babies to sleep on their back or sides. If your infant child has died from unexplained causes at a day care center, it may be due to negligence in putting the child to sleep on his or her stomach.
Whenever a death or serious injury has occurred, our lawyers will review all evidence to determine if the day care center staff or owner was negligent.
