Van Dyke Law LLC’s Connecticut and Massachusetts daycare center injury lawyer has handled numerous wrongful death matters and injury claims involving accidents arising from the negligent care and supervision of infants and children within daycare facilities.
We put our children in daycare every day assuming that they will be kept safe from any dangers. Most parents do not want to put their children in daycare and would rather be home with them, but are left no choice when they both have busy jobs. We assume that daycare centers are the best place to ensure child safety, and it is therefore extremely upsetting to discover that your child was subject to injuries at their daycare center. If your child has been injured while at a daycare center, the center may be responsible for any injuries your child received while at the center.
Daycare Center Injuries
Daycare facilities must be licensed by the state in order to operate and must follow a strict set of regulations in order to maintain their compliance. Additionally, all employees who work at daycare centers must pass a thorough background check which delves into their criminal history and any other background facts which may relate to their inability to perform a job with children. However, every so often, a daycare center is not as thorough as they should be, and employees who should not be around children end up working at a daycare center, or employees who do not have the proper experience.
For many parents, it is a difficult decision to leave your child in daycare, but it is difficult to live with the guilt that your child was injured while in daycare and in a scenario out of your control. Keep in mind that it is not your fault that their injury occurred, but is most likely due to the negligence of their daycare teacher or the daycare facility itself. It is important to pursue claims against a daycare center which engaged in negligent hiring or negligent child services in order to ensure another child is not injured at the center.
Children can receive many different types of injuries while at daycare depending on the level of abuse or negligence which was present. Daycare neglect and abuse are often interchangeable, as children often severely injure themselves when they are neglected for extended periods of time. Children additionally do not have the ability to protect themselves from abuse and they may experience continued abuse before you become aware of any impropriety.
