Has Your Child Been Injured at Daycare?

How do daycare injuries happen? In many cases, it is simply a case of a daycare facility not having enough qualified staff members on hand to supervise and monitor children. Children who are not supervised are left vulnerable to a wide range of accident injuries, including:

  • Injuries on play equipment
  • Choking on food or other objects
  • Allergic reactions
  • Getting injured by other children
  • Wandering off from the facility
  • Getting injured in traffic

Supervision Risks When Selecting the Right Daycare for Your Child

March 15, 2017 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

There are still a few months left in the school year, but parents should already start making decisions regarding where their children are going to go during summer break.  Most parents can’t afford to take two months off work to provide direct care and supervision for their child, so they are reliant upon other arrangements. Though some parents choose for their children to stay home with minimal supervision during the break, many more are left scrambling for daycare or other options.  Summer camps are the choice for some kids, but not all parents want their kids away from home for that long.  Summer day camps might be offered through local YMCAs, schools or other programs.

March 05, 2016 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

Every day millions of Americans head to work and entrust the safety of their children to daycare workers.

Vulnerable Persons in Daycare Incidents

December 29, 2015 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

The signs can be particularly difficult to see.  Daycare abuse is staggeringly common in the United States, and many types of abuse leave very visible marks.  If your child is punched, kicked, or pushed, there is likely to be a bruise.  Scratches and cuts can be telltale signs that abuse is taking place.  But one of the most devastating forms of abuse often leaves few physical marks behind.  It takes an experienced doctor to find the proof of what has been occurring.

Daycare Injuries: Feeling the Heat

September 19, 2014 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

When we pick our children up from daycare, we usually ask them how their days went, and we smile to hear stories of songs, games, and other activities.  There is something incredibly reassuring about having our children tell us how much fun they are having, and we assume that if they don’t tell us anything bad, then nothing bad is going on.  But sometimes, this is a false reassurance.

Daycare Injury: When It's Difficult to Know

August 13, 2014 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

It’s hard to pick a daycare, but we do our best.   We tour the place ahead of time, and we ask all the important questions.  Unfortunately, this isn't enough.  A tour of the facility can be staged to hide any problems.  All the light sockets can be safety plugged and all the toxic substances can be locked up just as long as you are there.  All the staff can be friendly and smiling, and it can look like the kids are having a great time.  The snacks might be healthy and the schedule educational, but there’s no way to be certain that the most important rule of all is followed.  There’s no way to be sure that the caregivers are watching the children at all times.

Choosing the Right Babysitter: Avoiding An Accident

February 17, 2014 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

We have all heard the horror stories about daycare abuse and injuries. As a result, some of us have resorted to having an in-home babysitter instead of putting our kids in the hands of a center who has to watch several children at one time. While using our neighbor or best friend may seem like a viable and trustworthy solution, you may want to think twice.

Unlicensed Daycares: Don’t be Tempted by the Price

October 16, 2013 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

When searching for the perfect daycare for your child, it is no surprise that there may be some unlicensed daycares in the mix, whether you realize it or not. With so many of the centers offering various features, it maybe temping to go with a daycare center that has a lower price offering than others you have explored.  A word of caution:  don’t be tempted by the price when it comes to the welfare of your child.  A quality center will be up front with fees and offerings.  And, don’t think your next door neighbor is above it all in providing the best care for your kids – that person could be in the category of “unlicensed daycare” if the person takes on three or more children.

Alternate Plans for Daycare: What To Do When You Have No Choice

July 10, 2013 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

The summertime brings varying routines for parents and children. When school is out, and daycares and kid camps are utilized, parents are often forced to make choices that alter a regular schedule.  This might mean quickly finding a daycare to accommodate your child’s summer schedule. You may not have time to fully investigate before you enroll. In a rare case in Canada, a daycare center was investigated when reports of children being taped to cots for not behaving surfaced in the media and among other parents.  While this may seem extreme, it’s not uncommon for daycare workers to lose their cool and strike out at innocent kids.

Daycare Injuries and Accidents: New York Attorney Offers Advice - What To Look For When You Suspect Abuse at Your Child’s Daycare Center

April 16, 2013 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

The routine for many working parents includes taking their children to daycare, whether a personal daycare provider, or a preschool or other organization.  Mom and Dad know it’s a positive move for their children to socialize and interact with others, while serving as a way to keep the kids occupied (and sometimes educated) as the parents make a living.  But, as recently as January 29 of this year, we hear stories about abuse in daycare centers, abuse and injuries that rear their ugly head in many forms: unwarranted or unusual punishment, satanic or cult-influenced ritual abuse, neglect and, sadly, sexual abuse.

Daycare Injuries: Is Your Child’s Daycare Licensed?

April 01, 2013 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

In a recent case in Ocala, Florida a daycare was cited for negligence when a one-year-old child climbed onto a chair, fell, landed on his head and later died from severe head injuries.  The daycare was a private daycare in the home of a woman who had been denied licensure because the person living with her had a criminal record and did not pass the background investigation. She ignored the denial and proceeded with operating the daycare, which ultimately ended in this tragedy.  Other instances of unlicensed daycare include those who have had a license suspended, those who are operating under a license that has not been renewed, and those who are operating despite a license that has been revoked.
