Day Care Facility Injuries
San Diego Child & Daycare Injury Attorney
When a child is injured on the grounds of a school, day care facility, or home of a day care provider, it can be a very stressful event for both child and parent. While not every accident can be avoided, many can be with proper staffing ratios of adult to children and other appropriate safety procedures and policies. Unfortunately, proper staffing ratios alone do not make a daycare facility safe, particularly where the employees are not well trained or educated in child care. Many parents learn for the first time while investigating a day care facility accident that the facility may have had past licensing problems, license suspensions or even license revocations that were not disclosed. It is also not uncommon for a facility to misrepresent their legal status, licensing status, or history of injuries to a new or potential client.
Injuries at daycare facilities are not limited to falls from playground equipment. They can include preventable food allergies and injuries, inappropriate touching or conduct between another student and your child or worse, a staff member and a child. Wet floors, poisons, chemicals and other dangerous conditions can cause serious injuries in a daycare facility. Many of these accidents and injuries are avoidable and are caused by negligence.
Many parents have no choice but to leave their children in the care of others. Daycare facilities are responsible to provide a clean, safe and caring environment for your child. Unfortunately many are understaffed, undertrained or are simply more concerned about the bottom line. When accidents do occur, you and your child should be fairly compensated and the facility charged with the care of your child should be held accountable.
