What should I do if my child was injured at day care?

Cape Cod Personal Injury Lawyer Represents Your Family's Best Interests

If you send your child to day care, you expect the caretakers to protect his or her safety. Unfortunately, child care workers and day care centers do not always act responsibly or in conjunction with safety codes, so children get hurt. To hold these persons accountable, you need an attorney who will help you establish a negligence claim.

What to Do After Your Child Is Injured at Day Care

Once you learn of the injury, make sure to take pictures. This will provide greater proof if litigation is necessary. After taking your child to a physician for medical treatment, keep all receipts and documents. These will show how much compensation is required. You may also be able to get compensated for emotional suffering and lost wages, depending on the injury. Next, you should talk to the caretaker and find out what happened. Your attorney can help question witnesses and obtain statements from the day care center. When you have all the information needed, you will be able to file a claim.

How to Establish a Negligence Claim for a Day Care Injury in Massachusetts

To prove that you should recover damages for your child's injury at day care, you must be able to demonstrate the following:

  1. The employees or day care center was negligent.
  2. The injury was caused by the center's negligence.

You must first show that the employees or day care center did not establish proper safety procedure or did not exercise due care. There are many unforeseeable events that take place at the day care which are wholly unpreventable. Here are some examples of negligent behavior:

  • Lack of supervision
  • Easy access to dangerous objects
  • Lack of proper boundaries
  • Inattentiveness
  • Improper food preparation/care
