A lawyer can make sure you do not settle for less money than your child’s injuries demand.
Signs of Daycare Abuse or Neglect
The first step in resolving a daycare abuse or neglect claim is recognizing that something is wrong. Even a well-researched facility could put your child at risk if it hires a criminal, becomes understaffed, neglects property maintenance or stops prioritizing child safety. Pay attention to the state of the daycare center when you drop off and pick up your child. Frequently check your child for suspicious injuries or signs of neglect or abuse. Act quickly if you notice anything amiss.
- Unusual or frequent injuries
- Unexplained injuries
- Abuse-like injuries (e.g. dislocations)
- Broken bones
- Bite or slap marks
- Mood swings
- Aggressive behaviors
- Sudden knowledge of sexual matters
- Injuries to sexual organs
Abuse is not the only threat your child might face at a daycare center in Richardson. Some centers cause child injuries negligently, such as through keeping dangerous premises. Fall hazards, falling objects, lack of childproofing, wet floors, defective playground equipment, unsafe toys, accessible chemicals, lack of supervision, exposed swimming pools, small objects available to toddlers and hot surfaces are examples of property defects that could expose children to risks of injuries.
