It can be heart wrenching to discover that your child was hurt while at a child care facility. As a parent, such an accident highlights the lack of control you sometimes have over your child’s well-being. The injury can be as minor as a scraped knee from a slip and fall, or as serious as a traumatic brain injury from a fall.
Occasionally, kids sustain injuries as a result of the negligence of child care workers, the lack of regard for safety precautions, or even the reckless actions of caregivers. It is vital that if this happens to your child, you make every effort to identify those individuals who are responsible and hold them accountable.
A child injury awsuit against a facility might be appropriate if:
- your child is injured by falling off rusting and unsafe playground equipment at a Summerlin daycare facility.
- an in-home nursery in North Las Vegas fails to monitor your son, who wanders into the street and is struck by a car.
- your infant daughter has to be rushed to a Green Valley hospital and treated for dehydration because the caregivers at the nursery where she spent the last eight hours did not feed her at all.
- on a day camp field trip to Lake Mead, your preteen child is injured in the wreck of a van being operated by an improperly licensed driver.
You should also know that even if you sign a permission slip or waiver of liability before leaving your child in the care of a facility, you still probably have grounds to file suit if your child is injured and it was the fault of those who were charged with taking care of him or her. If you have any questions about this matter, a qualified personal injury attorney will be happy to answer them for you.
