What are the Most Common Causes of Childcare Negligence in Texas?

Like all kids, Texas children are active and unpredictable. That is why they must always be cared for and supervised closely.

Some of the most common causes of daycare negligence may include, but is not limited to:

  • Accidents on the premises
  • Another child causing them harm
  • Children kept in unsafe environments
  • Criminal acts
  • Inadequate staffing
  • The ratio of caregivers to children
  • Special procedures for infants and special needs children
  • Toxic or hazardous toys or furniture
  • Unqualified workers
  • Unsafe facilities

When businesses focus on childcare whether it is one person or a company with multiple employees they are responsible for taking every measure possible to ensure the safety of the children in their care.

When childcare facilities fail to run adequate background checks on their staff, the kids in their care can be physically, emotionally, or sexually abused by predators who hide behind kindness and sensitivity towards children. The result can be devastating.

If you believe your child has been hurt because of their childcare provider’s negligence, you do not have to pursue the individual, company, or insurance company alone. We can help.

What Legal Options are Available After Neglect or Injury Occurs at a Daycare in Texas?

If a child is injured at a daycare center as a result of negligence or inadequate supervision, parents have the option to file a personal injury lawsuit on behalf of the minor child.

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to get the childcare provider to cooperate when you ask for details regarding the incident or to provide video footage from the facility.

Texas childcare facilities must produce an incident report, but how the story is told is completely up to their discretion.

If you have trouble with getting the information from the childcare facility, we can help.

Often, it takes a lawsuit to force them to provide the employee statements, images or video footage, and crucial evidence that will help strengthen your case.

Filing a lawsuit against the caregiver and/or the facility will legally force them to provide the documentation we need to deliver dedicated, driven results.

Frequently Asked Questions for Our Childcare Negligence and Injury Attorneys in Austin, Texas

What Should I Do After My Child is Injured at a Daycare?

In Texas, parents must sign an incident report provided by the daycare center shortly after the injury occurs.

As soon as you learn about your child’s injury at the childcare facility, attempt to collect vital evidence in the form of pictures or statements from other employees and compare the evidence to the report they have provided, then seek immediate medical care for your child.

Next:

  • Take photos of the negligent or hazardous circumstances, if it has not already been remedied (which is possible), and of your child’s injuries.
  • Ask for all videos of the incident.
  • Keep records of the personnel’s responses to your questions.
  • Record the day-to-day impact the injuries have on your child, so their story can be told in full through our legal claim.
  • Keep business cards, medical records, and bills received from the hospital or other medical providers.

How are Childcare Negligence Settlements Paid in Texas?

When a personal injury settlement is awarded on behalf of a minor, the court will order the compensation to be held in the registry of the court until the child turns eighteen or can be transferred into an annuity from a reputable insurance company to pay the proceeds to the minor once they are of age.

Who is Liable for My Child’s Daycare Injuries and Damages?

There may be many damages that result from the childcare incident that resulted in your child’s injuries, including medical bills, therapy costs, pain and suffering, the parents’ time away from work, and other out-of-pocket expenses and co-pays that you may have while your child is being treated. The childcare provider’s insurance coverage will be liable for reimbursing you for these expenses.
