When you drop your child off at a daycare center, you are trusting the employees will take the utmost care of the person you love the most. When that fails to happen, you are angry and fearful to leave your child in a stranger’s hands again.

Injuries at daycare facilities can range from a simple skinned knee to serious injuries, even death. Many of these injuries come from simple negligence – the daycare worker was preoccupied with something else and failed to act in an appropriate manner. When this occurs, you may want to hold those accountable for their actions.

For more than five decades, the Scranton daycare injury lawyers at Munley Law have been fighting for the victims of negligence throughout Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. Our award-winning team works hard to make sure you and your family are properly compensated for the injuries that occurred to your child. We understand how fragile your children are and we make sure this will never happen again at that daycare facility.

The Realities of Daycare Fatalities

According to a 2014 Child Care Aware of America report, nearly 11 million children under the age of 5 are looked after by daycare providers each week in the U.S. These millions of children spend on average 36 hours each week in child care and nearly 3 million are enrolled in multiple child care arrangements, thanks to their parents’ working hours.

Unfortunately, there are no statistics on child fatalities in child care. Because the United States does not have any federal reporting requirements, many of fatalities go either unreported or are undisclosed, thanks to state reporting requirements. Just recently in Mississippi, a daycare center was accused in the death of a baby in its care. That daycare center is still operating.

What to Look for in a Daycare Facility

Unfortunately, many signs of daycare negligence can go unnoticed until it’s too late. There are laws that provide standards all daycare facilities must follow; however, failure to follow these standards can result in legal liability in the case of an accident.

When choosing a daycare, make sure have the following:

  • Proper ratio of caregiver to child. For instance, if there’s one caregiver taking care of 50 children at one time, expect an accident to occur.
  • Easy access to first aid. Don’t see a first aid kit on the premises? This could be problematic.
  • Proper safety standards are met.
  • Adequate portioning of food according to a prescribed schedule. If your child is eating too much or not enough, this could be a sign of negligence.
  • Adequate access to water.
  • Proper bathroom facilities.
  • Proper safety measures to prevent any wandering behaviors. If your child has a tendency to wander, this is essential.
  • A policy that forbids all forms of physical, mental, emotional, and/or sexual abuse.

Marion not only is an accomplished lawyer who gets great results, but also she brings genuine compassion and zealous advocacy to each person she represents. Our firms have worked together on important cases and I look forward to future opportunities to work together. Rena Leizerman

First, I want to tell you I hired another firm for my case before Marion, I did not choose carefully the first time is all I will say. Secondly , I would like to say that I do not give the highest rating to many people or companies without earning it. I can say Marion earned it!! She and everyone I came into contact with in her firm handled my case with the utmost professionalism, as well as true empathy for my situation, while not missing a detail about the facts of the case. I can not leave out her paralegal Janice, she was totally on the ball at all times. My case was a personal injury case ( I was hit by a tractor trailer) which was settled for a very fair settlement ! I am sure whatever your case involves, she will handle it in the same manner. She is a great person and an awesome attorney!! She will fight for you!! Jeffrey, a Personal Injury Client

Chris Munley represented my dad at a very difficult time with compassion yet in the court room he was the fighter we needed. Chris helped my family during a time of incredible hardship when my dad was hit head on by 2 teenage girls. He took the time to answer all of our questions at any given time when we needed him. He treated my entire family with respect and helped us to get what we deserved. I would recommend Chris Munley to anyone in need of a reliable, determined, and trustworthy attorney.
