What Should a Parent Do If a Child Is Injured While at a Day Care Center?

4_ToysIn Florida and other States, day care centers should essentially be safe havens for children. Hard working parents deserve the comfort and peace of mind knowing that a child is safe and protected in a day care center. Unfortunately, far too many children are injured in the very places (day care centers / child care centers) where the children should be otherwise in a safe learning environment. In the aftermath of a child injury at a Florida day care center, a parent is faced with many questions, challenges, and stresses.

When evaluating a potential day care center case, there are four elements to establish:

1 – Duty;
2 – Breach of Duty;
3 – Causation; and
4 – Damages

There must be a link or connection between the negligence or fault and the damages sustained otherwise referred to as the personal injuries. A case is not established per se just because an injury takes place or just because the day care center did not follow a certain policy, procedure, rule, or statute. Each potential day care center case must be evaluated on it own facts, circumstances, and merits.

Certainly, a parent should seek out necessary medical care and get whatever information that the day care center will provide as to the details of the incident including the incident report, photographs, and video of the incident.
