In Florida, children are the unfortunate victims of personal injuries in day care centers. Due to inadequate supervision or other forms of negligence, children suffer serious personal injuries in Florida day care centers that require medical attention. When a child is injured as a result of the negligence of a day care or child care worker, the parents can pursue an insurance claim or a legal case for damages and compensation related to the child injury. Assuming there are no issues as to liability or fault, the value of the case will depend on a number of factors:
Medical Bills. The insurance adjuster for day care center will consider the medical bills incurred in the past and the medical bills to be incurred in the future.
Medical Treatment. The type and expense of the medical treatment will also be considered when placing a value on a child injury claim for a day care center negligence case. If the child has surgery or any kind of procedure, this will increase the value of case.
Permanency of the Injuries. Another factor it that is considered is whether the injuries are permanent in nature and extent of the permanency. In other words, the defendant or the insurance company will consider if the child will have the effects of the injuries for number of years to come. Furthermore, the adjuster and day care center will consider how the injuries will impact the child’s life.
Scarring and Disfigurement. Another factor that consider is whether the injury sustained at the daycare center result in any visible injuries on the child. Facial injuries to a child can be especially troublesome especially if they result in permanent scarring that will follow the child and remain on the child for a lifetime.
