Daycare Negligence Lawsuits
To establish a claim for daycare negligence, you must prove that your daycare facility had the duty of care, breached that duty, and then caused an injury to your child because of that breach.
If your kid is injured at a daycare center, the premises liability and personal injury laws of Georgia will determine the circumstances and the extent to which your daycare will be held responsible.
Protecting the Vulnerable
If there aren’t enough adults watching a group of children, then it’s far more likely that one of the kids will get into trouble and unintentionally injure himself or herself. No one is more vulnerable than our children.
Lack of proper supervision and negligence are the leading causes of daycare injuries and even fatalities. Inadequate staffing often causes lack of supervision itself. It’s imperative that daycare facilities act carefully at all times to keep children safe and secure.
Signs of Negligence
State and federal laws prescribe standards that all of the daycare facilities and other child caring institutions must follow in Atlanta, GA. These standards include providing proper oversight, removing known dangers, and maintaining proper hygiene and appropriate caregiving items in case of an emergency.
Failure to abide by any of the existing standards often leads to legal liability in the event of an accident.
Many times daycare negligence goes unnoticed until it is too late. When choosing a daycare for your child, you should ensure that they meet the following criteria at all times.
The daycare center should provide the following:
- Easy access to first aid tools
- Appropriate caregiver to child ratio
- Adequate portioning of food according to the prescribed schedule
- A policy prohibiting all forms of physical, sexual, mental and/or emotional abuse
- Proper safety measures to prevent “Wandering,” where the child leaves the daycare facility without authorization
- Adequate bathroom facilities
- Proper safety and security standards
- Proper access to water
