The decision to place your child in the care of relative strangers at a daycare facility can be difficult for some. Despite that fact, millions of working and single parents place their children in daycare facilities on a daily basis. When entrusting the care of your child to a daycare facility you expect and are entitled to the best care and protection for your child. Daycare facilities have a duty to protect your child from harm and provide the safest environment possible when your child is in their care. Unfortunately, the negligence of a daycare facility or its staff has caused children to be injured on too many occasions.
A daycare facility can also be held liable for an injury to a child caused by intentional abuse of the operator/owner or staff. A daycare facility has a duty to provide competent and compassionate staff to provide care for your child. If your child is injured as a result of intentional abuse at a daycare facility, you may be able to recover damages from both the daycare facility and the individual employee at the daycare facility.
