Day Care Accidents In Houston
Written by greg on January 10, 2012
Millions of mothers and fathers entrust the care of their child (or children) to daycare centers each week as they head out to make the wages necessary to keep their family afloat financially. Certainly most of them would prefer to remain at home and care for the child themselves because we all know that there is no one who will look out for your child with the same authentic concern than the parent.
Unfortunately, working is a necessity for most of us and even when we believe we have located the perfect substitute ‘parenting’ group we still hold our breaths as we hand our children over. And with good reason as it turns out because statistics show that thousands of children receive injuries of one sort or another and some quite serious while at daycare each day.
There are times when the injuries are very serious. Take, for instance, the case of the mother whose child rolled off a changing table and hit the floor when he had been left unattended. Even though the daycare center claimed the child was fine – the mother took her son straightaway to the emergency room where they discovered he had a fractured skull and concussion. Other examples like broken arms, and legs occur much more frequently in day care accidents than you would believe.
Parents frequently pulled their child out of that daycare center immediately and then sue them for negligence and sometimes even punitive damages. Even when the child eventually recovers – the parents (particularly the mother) often have a hard time not feeling guilty for entrusting their little one to the day care after a day care accident. Texas will usually investigate a serious daycare child injury though the Texas Child Care Licensing agency.
