Child Daycare Injury Lawyers in Boston
Daycare providers should be held accountable for child injuries
In every parent’s life, sending his or her child to daycare for the first time can be an emotional and major event. It might be the first time you have ever left your child with anyone, and you trust him or her to care for him or her like you would.
As a parent, you have been on what seems like hundreds of facility tours, talked with the manager and program staff, ask other parents their opinions, and debated whether you were making the best decision for your child.
You will eventually choose the daycare provider that you feel is best suited for this responsibility, fitting your needs in hopes everything will be okay. Unfortunately, not all daycares live up to their expectations

Here is a look at the types of preventable injuries occurring in daycares today:
- Broken bones
- Eye injuries
- Traumatic brain injury

These injuries are just a glance at the most common examples of reported daycare facility injuries in which child injury attorneys hear about. An important note to keep in mind when we say preventable injuries and negligence, both assault and sexual assault are also a major part of this issue. There are many different scenarios that come into play when we allow daycare workers to commit these horrendous acts including:
- Negligent retention of an employee
- Negligent supervision
- Negligent staff
All of these are factors leading up to daycare injuries.
What to Do if Your Child was Injured in Daycare
There are many steps parents should consider if their child has been injured in daycare in order to increase the likelihood of receiving a full and fair settlement. It is extremely important to make sure the staff filled out an incident report the day of the accident; this needs to be addressed immediately to the staff. Documentation is vital in these cases. You should also seek medical attention immediately after your child was injured and make sure to keep all medical records.
Medical records of an examination that correlates closets to the time and date of the accident or injury is crucial. The daycare provider can claim that your child was not injured at their facility or in their custody if you chose to wait and seek medical attention it will do more harm than good for your case. The more documentation you can provide to your daycare injury attorney in Boston, the stronger your case will be making it easier to prove your case.
You should never make any statements or sign any documentation before speaking with an experienced attorney, even if the daycare provider’s insurance company prior contacts you.
Major insurance companies are aware that families might be in immediate need of money and will often try to get to them during this fragile time. Their goal is to get you to accept pennies on the dollar to what they owe while having you sign a general release of liability to protect itself over your child.
