San Antonio Daycare Injury Lawyers
Parents send their children off to daycare with the expectation that they will be properly cared for and not put in harm’s way. While young children are more prone to bumps and bruises because of their underdeveloped motor skills, many accidents and injuries can still be prevented with proper supervision. Unfortunately, some daycares are too bogged down to effectively supervise or are untrained or unlicensed, leaving the children they care for vulnerable.
Potential Dangers at Daycare
Children become curious about the objects around them, even the ones that can cause them harm. This can include cleaning supplies, drugs, and small objects, putting them at risk for choking. Wet floors, unsecured furniture, unsafe playground equipment, defective toys, and open swimming pools can also cause serious injury. Choking, ingestion of toxins, falls, and other injuries can be attributed to lack of supervision. In other cases, caretakers physically or emotionally abuse the child left under their care.
