Day Care Accidents Are Often The Result Of Negligence
Day care (or pre-school) facilities often cut corners to reduce costs. Many day care facilities are understaffed or staffed by employees who are not properly trained. Many day care accidents occur because day care providers do not have adequate safety protocols in place or fail to follow their own policies. In addition, many accidents are caused because day care or pre-school providers who simply fail to properly monitor children.
One thing is for certain, day care accidents are rarely the fault of the child, because they are too young to know better. When we drop off our children at day care centers, we have a right to expect that we will pick them up as happy and healthy as they were when we left them in the hands of the facility that morning. We count on day care centers and pre-schools to watch over and carefully protect our children. Indeed, they have a legal duty to do so. Their breach of that duty is usually the cause of injuries to children.
