Child and Daycare Negligence

Reno Child and Daycare Negligence Lawyer

When we entrust our children into the supervisory care of daycare professionals, the last thing we think about is that they could be capable of negligence. All daycare workers, after all, have a duty to supervise and educate children in a safe and clean environment.

Unfortunately, however, each year we read another tragic story of a child that was injured while on a daycare worker's watch. Common daycare injuries include lacerations, burns, bumps/bruising, bone fractures, and dental injuries.

Other signs that might point to daycare negligence include emotional distance, unusual aggressiveness and hunger/thirst beyond what is reasonable to expect for a child.

Do I Have a Valid Claim?

Grounds for a child and daycare negligence lawsuit can include:

  • Assault by daycare staff members or other children
  • Dangerous conditions at the day care facility
  • Failure to address or accommodate a child's special needs
  • Failure to employ enough staff members
  • Falls from furniture or playground equipment
  • Injuries sustained as a result of inadequate supervision
  • Laying a child down to sleep incorrectly on the stomach

A daycare should provide a nurturing and safe environment for children. This includes providing adequate portioning of food according to a prescribed schedule, adequate access to water, proper bathroom facilities, and other safety measures. When a daycare professional or facility fails to uphold their duty to care for your child, you may be eligible to file a claim against them.

In order to have a successful case, you will need to show that the daycare had a duty to protect your child from undue harm, the daycare breached this duty, the breach was the direct cause of your child's injuries, and the injury must have been foreseeable by the daycare staff.

After these things have been established, you can then negotiate the value of your child's damages. We have assisted numerous clients and recovered millions of dollars on their behalf. Our strategies and legal knowledge is proven and time-tested.
