When parents pay a day care to care for a child, the expectation is that the child will remain safe. If that expectation is not met and the child suffers serious injuries or wrongful death, parents may have the right to take action against the day care. At Heintz & Becker, our board-certified civil trial lawyers are ready to handle all child injury cases.
Children’s Injuries Due to Negligent Supervision
The most common cause of injuries at child care facilities is failure to properly supervise a child. By law, these facilities are required to be properly staffed. Eyes should be on children at all times, simply because life-changing accidents only require a matter of seconds. There is no excuse for a caregiver to step away while children are playing. If a child climbs on something and falls, gets into a fight with another child or is harmed in any other way when a caregiver should have been present, we will hold the day care accountable for the child’s injuries.
Playground Accidents and Injuries
Many day care facilities have playgrounds. Not only should children be properly monitored when playing on these playgrounds, but also the playgrounds need to be assembled and maintained properly. All equipment needs to be free of defects and in proper working order. When a swing set, monkey bars, merry-go-round or any other piece of equipment is defective or not properly assembled and maintained, we will determine who is accountable. We will take the appropriate action to get compensation for your child’s injuries. We represent victims of day care injuries in Bradenton, Sarasota and the surrounding parts of Florida.
