Can I Sue a Daycare?
Federal law requires states to maintain guidelines for children’s health and safety in daycares. However, these policies do not always prevent accidents or abuse from happening.
If your child has been injured, you can bring a claim against the daycare. Some daycare facilities will require you to sign a liability waiver upon your child’s enrollment. However, these waivers don’t bar you from seeking compensation for a daycare injury.
Courts often refuse to uphold liability waivers because they are seen as allowing the daycare to act negligently without any repercussions. Even if you have signed a liability waiver, you should still reach out to an attorney to discuss your case.
Negligence and Common Types of Daycare Accidents
Generally, you will bring a negligence action against your child’s daycare provider. There are many different ways that a daycare could have been negligent.
- Failure to Properly Supervise a Child: Even stepping away from a child for a minute is long enough for a child to become injured. If a child is lost or injured due to lack of supervision, this may be considered negligence.
- Failure to Provide Safe Premises: There are many potential hazards in daycares that could harm your child, such as loose handrails, wet floors, unsafe playground equipment, bookshelves, and more. A daycare’s failure to provide a safe environment for your child may be deemed negligence.
- Failure to Screen Employees: If your child is harmed by an employee, the daycare can be held liable if they failed to conduct background checks on employees.
- Failure to Abide by a Child’s Special Dietary Needs: If a daycare provider is aware of your child’s allergy, he or she must take reasonable care to protect that child from the harmful allergen.
There are many common types of accidents that can take place in a daycare. When left unsupervised, children can injure one another. Children can choke on food, ingest allergens, or become sick from spoiled food. They can be injured by unsafe toys with small parts, by poorly maintained playground equipment, or by falling when unsupervised.
If you decide to bring a case against your child’s daycare, you will need to prove your child suffered injuries as a direct result of the daycare provider’s negligence. Meeting with an attorney to discuss the accident can help you to bring the strongest claim possible.
