Alabama & Georgia Law Firm for Daycare Negligence & Daycare Abuse
No parent wants to receive a call that their child was harmed while at daycare. Daycare should be a safe and secure place for your child. However, every day there are children hurt in daycare settings. In some cases, an accident injuring your child may have been unavoidable, but in other cases the daycare will have been negligent in monitoring or caring for your child. In those cases you need to be sure that the daycare takes full responsibility for any harm that was caused while in their care.
Negligence in A Daycare Setting
Many daycares do not have the staff to child ratio that is legally required in order to properly monitor all of the children’s activities. A daycare employee could be responsible for providing care to several children at once, placing your child at risk. All it takes is a moment of negligence to cause irreparable damage. In these cases, you may be due compensation for your child’s injuries.
Abuse in a Daycare Setting
While you don’t want to consider the idea that someone at daycare may have abused or physically harmed your child, it is possible. If your child comes home with unexplained bruises, or seems unusually afraid to go to daycare, you should consider this a possibility. There are instances where daycares do not properly screen their employees before hiring. In some cases, employees with a track record of abuse and other crimes are hired.
