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 Personal Injury Attorneys 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.

Matthew, Personal Injury Client

    I had a complex medical malpractice case and I wasn’t sure if there was an liability there. I felt there was some negligent behavior on the part of some nursing home staff. This firm, through Marion Munley, took me through all the steps necessary to prove negligent behavior that might have caused death of my loved one. She was very compassionate and very detailed and patience. I think they are a terrific firm. There wasn’t anything I disliked… I would highly recommend them as a Personal Injury Law Firm. They also handle all types of car and truck accidents, workers compensation and social security disability. I think they are the best in town. Guest of Bing
