How to Prove Daycare Negligence in a Child Injury Claim

In many cases, daycares may request that you sign a waiver, which includes a release of liability clause. However, it is imperative to understand that you do not have to sign. Additionally, if you have signed a waiver, you may still be eligible to take legal action for negligence for your child’s injuries

To obtain a favorable outcome in a daycare injury claim, an experienced lawyer must prove the following elements of negligence: 

  • The duty of care the liable party owed you
  • The breach of that duty of care
  • The causation of the subsequent child injuries
  • The damages and losses you suffered

The following negligent actions by staff or other relevant parties can cause daycare accidents:  

  • Poor supervision: Texas law mandates explicit ratios of children to staff to ensure proper supervision. Unfortunately, many daycare centers are understaffed, which increases the likelihood of an accident. 
  • Inadequate precautions: Daycares are legally obligated to maintain safe premises and exercise safety precautions to prevent accidents. However, many centers fail to meet this duty. 
  • Failure to act: Occasionally, daycares experience unavoidable accidents, such as a fall where a child bumps their head on a surface. Nevertheless, daycare staff must act quickly after any accident to clean and treat injuries or call for additional medical help if necessary.

If your child sustained injuries due to daycare negligence, our team of child injury lawyers will help you pursue compensation for any losses suffered as a result of the accident. For an assessment of your claim, contact one of our child injury lawyers today.
