What Should I do if my Child Was Harmed at Daycare?

Daycare is more than a place where parents leave their children for the day. Daycare is a place where children grow from exposure to other children unlike any other time in their lives thus far. Children begin learning about relationships in daycare, and they start to learn about what it means to navigate through new and unprecedented circumstances.

Fortunately, these interactions are usually positive, and the few negative interactions with other children, for example, can also be positive learning experiences in the long run. However, sometimes daycare providers are negligent and fail to realize how much work and supervision children truly need in order to have a beneficial and productive day away from their parents.

If your child was injured because of a negligent daycare supervisor or employer, there is a very good chance you will be entitled to compensation to help cover the cost of any damages your child has sustained as a result. If you find yourself in this unfortunate and disturbing situation, here are some of the questions you may have regarding the legal process going forward:

How do I sue a daycare for harming my child?

To sue a negligent daycare, your attorney must prove that the daycare owed your child a duty of care, breached that duty of care via a negligent or malicious action, and that your child was seriously injured as a result. However, this is easier said than done, which is why you will need an experienced attorney who knows the ins and outs of the personal injury process. A personal injury claim of this magnitude can put a daycare out of business, so you can be sure they will not go down without a fight. This is why you must ensure you hire an attorney who is willing and able to combat their legal counsel, no matter how experienced they are.

How can I prove that my child was injured due to a daycare’s negligence?

Fortunately, there are actions you may take to prove your child’s injury claim. If you suspect your child is the victim of daycare negligence or abuse, you must take pictures of his or her injuries, take pictures of the poor safety conditions at the daycare, provide your attorney with your child’s medical documents relating to the injury, and ask any witnesses of the incident for their contact information so they may verify your claim.
