Helping Victims of Child Daycare Negligence Throughout the State of Florida
When you select a Daycare Center, you want to know that your child will be allowed to learn and grow in a safe environment. Sadly, those to whom we entrust our precious children do not always live up to their sacred obligation to protect our kids from harm.
Florida law imposes a duty on daycare centers to provide a reasonably safe environment for children under their supervision. This means that in light of the vulnerability of children, the owners, operators and employees of a childcare center must act vigilantly to prevent injury to children under their care. This duty to protect children from harm demands that both the people operating the center and the premises on which they conduct their business conform to rigorous safety standards.
When selecting a childcare center, speak to the director or a manager and have them explain their safety policies and procedures. A mere sampling of relevant questions, among many others, would include:
- What, if any, background search did they conduct on their employees before hiring them?
- How long have the employees who will be supervising your children been working at the center?
- What level of education do their employees have and what training does the center provide to employees?
- What is the ratio of counselors/teachers to children?
- How do they go about identifying and eliminating potentially hazardous conditions on eating surfaces, on walking surfaces as well as in indoor and outdoor play areas?
- What do they do to ensure that all equipment is kept clean and in good working order?
Regrettably, the owners, operators and employees of many daycare centers fall below reasonable safety standards of care and cause injury to children. Broken bones, head injuries and other serious injuries can and do occur when daycare employees act in a negligent manner. If your child has suffered a serious injury due to daycare negligence, hiring an experienced daycare injury attorney is essential if you want to hold the careless caretakers accountable and obtain the substantial compensation to which your child and family may well be entitled under the law.
Florida Daycare Injury Lawsuits
If your child has been seriously injured in a daycare center because center workers were negligent or the center environment was carelessly designed, maintained, or operated, you have the right to hold the owner of the center and the staff liable for their negligence.
Florida law establishes strict rules, regulations and safety codes to which all daycare centers must adhere. Daycare center employees also have a duty to exercise reasonable care in supervising your children. If the center or its employees breaches their duty of care and your child is injured as a result, you can hold the center liable for the pain and suffering and other types of damages that it has caused.
As a parent, you can hold the negligent individuals or entities accountable by filing a claim against them. Even if you have signed a liability waiver that waives your right to sue a daycare provider, knowledgeable daycare injury attorneys are likely able to avoid these releases and take legal action against them. As your Florida daycare injury attorneys, we will work aggressively to hold the negligent parties accountable and help you get justly compensated for your child’s medical and care expenses, as well as the pain and suffering he or she has endured and may continue to endure in the future.
To build your case, we will need to prove that the daycare provider violated the legal obligation they owed to you and your child, that the violation or breach of duty led to your child’s injury, and that the daycare provider could have foreseen the injury. We will collect evidence, including reports of other injury incidents at the center; paperwork you previously filled out for the daycare provider; security footage of the injury incident, if available; your child’s medical records involving the daycare injury; and photographs of the daycare environment where the injury occurred as well as of the injuries your child sustained.
