Connecticut Daycare Center Injury Legal Team
Eagan & Donohue’s daycare center injury legal team has handled numerous wrongful death matters and injury claims involving accidents arising from the negligent care and supervision of infants and children within daycare facilities.
We put our children in daycare every day assuming that they will be kept safe from any dangers. Most parents do not want to put their children in daycare and would rather be home with them but are left no choice when they both have busy jobs. We assume that daycare centers are the best places to entrust with caring for our children during the day while ensuring their safety. It is therefore extremely upsetting to discover that your child was subject to injuries at their daycare center. If your child has been injured while at a daycare center, the center may be responsible for any injuries your child received while at the center.
Daycare Center Injuries
Daycare facilities must be licensed by the state in order to operate and must follow a strict set of regulations in order to maintain their compliance. Additionally, all employees who work at daycare centers must pass a thorough background check that delves into their criminal history and any other background facts that may relate to their inability to perform a job with children. However, every so often, a daycare center is not as thorough as it should be, and employees who should not be around children, or who do not have the proper experience, end up working at a daycare center.
For many parents, it is a difficult decision to leave your child in daycare, but it is even more difficult to live with the guilt that your child was injured while in daycare and in a scenario out of your control. Keep in mind that it is not your fault that their injury occurred, but is instead most likely due to the negligence of their daycare teacher or of the daycare facility itself. It is important to pursue claims against a daycare center that engaged in negligent hiring or negligent child services in order to ensure another child is not injured at the center.
Children can receive many different types of injuries while at daycare depending on the level of abuse or negligence that was present. Daycare neglect and abuse are often interchangeable, as children often severely injure themselves when they are neglected for extended periods of time. Children additionally do not have the ability to protect themselves from abuse, and they may experience continued abuse before you become aware of any impropriety.
