If your child has suffered harm while at daycare, you could be in a position to sue those responsible. This provides compensation to cover any medical bills or lost income you have incurred. It can also help to improve safety standards, ensuring the same mistakes do not happen again.
Daycare abuse British Columbia
When you place your child in daycare, you expect their health and safety to be protected. Anything short of this will no doubt lead to feelings of panic, anger and horror. Sadly, this is a reality that some parents face.
Of course, children have accidents. Sometimes they are just that – accidents. But there are times when a daycare facility puts a child at risk, either deliberately or through mistakes and errors of judgement. If this leads to an injury, it could amount to negligence.
It can be hard to know if your child’s daycare has been negligent – especially if the person or organisation denies any wrongdoing. Our Vancouver personal injury lawyers can investigate the incident, suggesting who, if anyone, is to blame.
Examples of daycare abuse
There are strict rules that govern the health and safety of children at daycare facilities. For example, an unlicensed childcare operator cannot care for more than two children at a time (not including their own).
If the rules and regulations are not met, it could lead to a child suffering an injury due to –
- Lack of supervision
- Defective products or unsafe equipment
- Animal attacks
- Exposure to chemicals
Whatever kind of injury your child has sustained, we know how upsetting this will be. Thankfully, most injuries suffered in daycare are temporary. However, there are times when serious, or even fatal, injuries occur. This will be truly devastating for all involved, changing your life forever.
