Should I sign a daycare liability clause?
Many daycares will require parents to sign a daycare liability clause. This document is used to waive your right to sue the daycare, should your child be harmed under their care. It is common for unsuspecting parents to sign this document without this knowledge. However, you still hold the power to hold the daycare liable for any harm done to your child, even if you have signed a daycare liability clause. This can be done with the help of an understanding and skilled personal injury lawyer.
What are the signs of daycare neglect or abuse?
If you believe that your child could be a victim of daycare neglect or abuse, be on the lookout for the below signs:
- 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. Daycares are responsible for ensuring they put away all things that may present hazards to children.
- Your child complains that they are hungry or thirsty when they return home. Your child unexpectedly loses weight. This may indicate that the daycare has malnourished your child.
- Rusty playground equipment, broken glass, or any other safety hazards outdoors present serious risks.
