The last thing you would expect as a parent is for your child to suffer a serious injury while at daycare. Accidents are inevitable, but when carelessness or recklessness on behalf of a daycare provider results in your child being injured, the employee or facility must be held accountable. If you believe you have a claim against your child’s daycare provider, contact a Phoenix child injury attorney at Stone Rose Law for a free case evaluation.
The aftermath of a daycare injury can be an emotional time for you, your little one, and your family. Seeking the help of a child injury attorney can give you the time you need to focus on your child’s recovery. Our lawyers have access to resources that enable us to investigate and use different methods for figuring out why your child was injured. That can include reviewing the daycare facility’s policy documents or memos, searching for previous complaints, speaking to witnesses, checking for surveillance video, etc.
After sufficient evidence is collected, a strong case will be built on behalf of both you and your child, then your attorney will pursue compensation for your losses. Whether that means negotiating a fair settlement with an insurance company or taking your case to trial to obtain the justice your child deserves.
Some of the most common types of injuries that occur at daycare facilities are:
The common causes of these injuries often include, but are not limited to, a lack of supervision, inadequate provider to child ratio, abusive employees, or faulty playground equipment. If your child was injured at daycare and you suspect negligence, speak with a personal injury attorney in Phoenix, AZ.
The owners of the daycare facility and the individuals providing the care can be held responsible for a child’s daycare injury; as the injuries frequently stem from negligence (carelessness) on behalf of the staff or poor facility management. The key to success will be evidence of negligence.
The court will consider whether an acceptable level of care was provided by the employees or management, as well as if the injury was foreseeable and preventable. For instance, if your child was injured on a broken slide, your Phoenix child injury attorney must prove the daycare owner and/or employee was aware of the danger and did nothing to repair it. Sadly, in some cases, a child will be intentionally injured. Holding the employee(s) responsible in those cases will require proof of the physical abuse.
