Unfortunately, part of childhood and growing up is children will have accidents and suffer injuries. So, it may be difficult to know when an injury that your child has suffered at daycare, or at school, warrants a personal injury lawsuit.

While we don’t advocate hiring a lawyer and bringing a lawsuit over every bump, bruise, and scrape, we do advocate seeing to it that your child is compensated if they suffered a serious injury, or if they were an abuse victim in the care of someone you paid and trusted to take care of them.

Personal injury attorneys will look for proof that the daycare providers were somehow negligent in their duties resulting in your child being injured. That is, they owed your child a duty and a standard of care, and they failed to live up to their obligations.

Types Of Negligence Leading to Daycare Accidents and Injuries

  • Children who were left unsupervised, or in the care of other children.
  • Inadequate security.
  • Failure to maintain the building or the playground, allowing unsafe conditions.
  • Failure to adhere to health and safety standards.
  • Engaging in mental, physical, or emotional abuse.
  • Failing to check buses or classrooms for children who may have been left behind.
  • Children roughhousing
  • School bus accidents

Sadly, all of these issues are far more common than most people realize. Daycare providers are overwhelmed and are often underpaid and undertrained. Many daycare centers are for-profit institutions willing to cut corners to increase profits.

If your child was injured at daycare or school you need to act fast so that your attorneys may quickly obtain evidence for your case. If your child was injured at a New York City Public School or Daycare you have just 90 days to file a Notice of Claim. If you don’t move quickly, you may lose your right to sue.

We have represented children who were injured in many different ways:

  • Roughhousing during lunch or recess.
  • A slip, trip or fall due to a defective condition.
  • Being cut due to a dangerous fence.
  • Failing to provide proper medical care on a timely basis.
  • Suffering physical or sexual abuse by students or teachers.

If your child was injured you do not have to face an overwhelming situation alone.
