Daycare employees have a duty to keep your child safe.
Injuries such as falling, drowning, and head trauma at daycare centers are unfortunately common and a parent’s worst nightmare. When a child is injured at a daycare center, a parent is left wondering who can be held liable, who to contact for legal help, and how a lawsuit may pan out for them.
If your child has suffered harm at a daycare facility, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit. Contact an attorney at TorHoerman Law for a free consultation to discuss your case and potential legal action.
You can also use our chatbot below to get a free case evaluation to find out if you qualify for a lawsuit right away.
At TorHoerman Law, we work on a contingency basis. You do not pay us anything unless we win. Our belief is that the client always comes first.
Typically, the language in these forms gives the daycare permission to seek emergency medical treatment for the child and release the daycare from any liability.
But, that will not prevent us from filing a daycare injury lawsuit. There have been plenty of cases filed in which the parents signed a release of liability, but the judge in the case ruled that it is against public policy to relieve a daycare from their responsibility of protecting the child.
Most often, both the employee tasked with watching the children and the daycare will be held liable for the injury. Sometimes, other individuals can be held liable depending on the circumstances of the accident. Liability is dependent on each individual case.
