what do i do if my child was hurt in daycare?
If your child has been injured while at daycare, you may be left wondering what to do next. Knowing what to do following the accident may help keep you and your child calm and safe, while also protecting your legal rights. Below are the steps you should take following any kind of daycare injury:
1. Seek Medical Attention
First, if your child has been injured due to an accident at daycare, you should consider bringing your child to his or her pediatrician. Depending on the severity of the injury, however, you may need to visit the emergency room or an urgent care facility.
Seeing a medical professional is necessary in order to diagnose all of your child’s injuries, including those that may not be readily apparent, or those that may become exacerbated if not immediately treated. Further, the appropriate medical professional will be able to create the proper medical documentation, which may come in handy later on when discussing compensation amounts.
2. File an Accident Report
Second, you may want to file an accident report with the daycare center. This report may serve as evidence as to the details of the accident, such as when, where, and how the accident occurred. Further, this report may also put the owners or supervisors of the daycare on alert that there may be issues within the center or with its employees.
3. Document the Accident
Third, document the accident, collect evidence, and take pictures of where the incident occurred. This information may prove crucial in your future personal injury case. Examples of documentation you should keep and maintain include a copy of the official accident report, a copy of any witness statements, and any resulting medical bills or related medical documentation. You should also take pictures of the scene of the accident, your child’s injuries, and ask for surveillance footage from the daycare. Remember, no detail is too small when it comes to your child’s safety and well-being.
4. Contact an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney
Lastly, you should contact a reputable personal injury attorney to fight on behalf of your child. The right attorney will be able to investigate your case, determine who was at fault, and help you navigate the often daunting legal process. Attorneys who have ample experience in daycare injury cases may help calm your nerves by answering all of your questions and keeping the process for pursuing your case manageable.

Potential daycare injuries and causes
There are many different injuries that a child can sustain while at daycare. Certain injuries are minor and will not usually require serious medical attention, such as a small scrape, while other injuries may require hospitalization and ongoing care. Below is a list of examples of potential daycare injuries and their causes:
The playground is a common area for children to get concussions or other serious brain injuries. For example, a child may fall off the monkey bars or swings, hit their head, and develop a concussion. In order to keep children safe, daycare facilities should use soft material under the playground equipment, install guardrails to help prevent falls, and keep a watchful eye on the children as they play.
After a fall or bump to the head, children may begin to show signs and symptoms of a concussion; for example, the child might complain of a headache or nausea. Further, the parent or daycare staff member may notice that the child is showing mood, behavior, or personality changes. If you suspect that your child has suffered a concussion while at daycare, it is important to seek the help of a medical professional right away to prevent any additional brain injury.
Bruises and Scrapes
Children could develop bruises and scrapes in a number of different ways. One common cause of a bruise or scrape would be from a slip and fall accident. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, falls are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries in children in the United States, with approximately 8,000 children ending up in the emergency room every year for fall-related injuries. Although these injuries are often minor, excessive bruising or serious scrapes may be the result of a negligent daycare worker.
A child may choke or suffocate on a number of different items, such as a small toy or piece of food. A properly trained daycare staff member should be trained to recognize when a child is choking and know how to perform lifesaving aid, such as the Heimlich maneuver.
Everyday items in the daycare center, such as cleaning products or medications, may be poisonous to children. Over 300 children in the United States are treated in an emergency department every day due to poisoning, with approximately two of those children unfortunately dying. If a daycare worker fails to properly supervise your child and your child becomes sick due to the ingestion of soap or other cleaning products, contact a personal injury attorney as soon as your child is safe.
If your child was injured at a daycare due to the negligence of a daycare staff member, you may be entitled to compensation for the payment of your child’s resulting medical care. Contact a today to discuss your potential case and specific Louisiana daycare laws.
