Warning Signs of Negligence
When you are searching for a daycare facility that’s just right for you and your child, it is important to keep in mind a few things that can indicate negligence. Some considerations include:
- What is the care giver to child ratio? Is it at least 1 to 6?
- Is the facility well kept and clean?
- Are there proper child-safety precautions, such as outlet covers, gates, cabinet locks, etc.
- How do the caregivers treat you and the children?
- How are the kids behaving?
- Does the facility’s equipment seem safe and up-to-date?
Even after considering all of these factors, choosing the right daycare facility can be extremely difficult. Make sure to speak frequently with your child about his or her experiences while at day care and investigate any suspicious comments or behavior.
If your child has suffered from an injury that occurred while he or she was at daycare, your case should be investigated for liability. You may be entitled compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other related fees.
