Here are some questions you may have about taking legal action against a daycare:
What is a daycare liability clause?
A daycare liability clause is a legal document that many daycares will require parents to sign. This document is used to waive the parent’s rights to sue the daycare if their child is harmed while under their care. Many unsuspecting parents will sign this document. However, it is still possible to hold a daycare liable even if this document has been signed. With the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney, parents can hold this daycare accountable for neglect and abuse.
What are some signs of daycare neglect or abuse?
The following are the most common signs that your child may be the victim of abuse or neglect at daycare:
- Failing to put away cleaning products, office supplies, such as paper clips or staplers, and more that are choking hazards or toxic risks to children.
- Your child complains that they are hungry or thirsty when they return home.
- Rusty playground equipment, broken glass, or any other safety hazards outdoors present serious risks.
- Your child unexpectedly loses weight. This may indicate that the daycare has malnourished your child.
How can I take legal action against a negligent daycare on behalf of my child?
If you believe that your child is the victim of neglect or abuse at daycare, you are likely eligible to recover compensation. To support your claim, you should collect as much evidence of the harm as possible including pictures and videos of the unsafe conditions. The next step you should take is to retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney who will work to recover the financial compensation you and your family deserve.
