Your Houston Daycare Injuries

Information Center

When a parent entrusts their most precious possession to someone to care for in their absence, they expect the caregiver to be diligent and caring. Unfortunately, many daycare centers lack skilled caregivers sufficiently trained to protect young children. A daycare center is a duty to supervise the children in their care and follow the rules set forth that apply to daycare centers in Texas.

A daycare center’s most common act of negligence is failing to supervise a child adequately. Failing to monitor can be taking their eyes off very young children, being distracted by another child, or temporarily leaving the room.

Violating the safety rules that apply to young children, such as which play equipment they can utilize based upon age, can also be an act of negligence. Another example would be failing to follow the formulas for teacher-child ratios.

If your child is injured at a daycare center, contact an attorney experienced in handling daycare negligence litigation after the accident.

If your child were injured at a daycare center, you would do what is necessary to get the medical treatment they need. Following up with the treating physicians is recommended. In Texas, the daycare facility must give you written notice whenever a child has been injured at the daycare.

Keeping a copy of that disclosure and obtaining a more detailed description of the incident is necessary. Asking for copies of videotapes and statements from employees can be helpful if you pursue a claim.

Sometimes, the Texas Child Protective Services Agency will investigate the incident and determine how the child was injured and if the daycare violated any rules. However, the investigation by Child Protective Services aims to protect the child and prevent a future occurrence and not necessarily to benefit the claim made by parents for the injury to their child.

After you have obtained all the factual information you can get from the daycare center, contact an attorney experienced in daycare center negligence litigation. We have been helping families pursue civil justice for injuries to children at daycare centers for over 35 years. Call us for a free no-obligation consultation at (281) 587-1111.

Choosing an attorney to fight for your child’s financial future after being hurt at a daycare center is a daunting task. Here are a few guidelines to help you select the appropriate attorney for your case.
Choosing an attorney for a daycare accident requires finding a lawyer who has handled numerous cases involving daycare injury. Daycare negligence claims need an attorney who is well-versed in the regulations applicable to daycare centers. And trial experience and the ability to dedicate the time and resources necessary are also essential considerations.
You should always pick an attorney licensed in the state where the incident occurred. Choosing an out-of-state attorney, even when they have vast experience in daycare litigation should not be your first choice. Out-of-state attorneys are at a disadvantage, well known to the insurance carriers for the daycare center.
Selecting the best attorney for your case requires judgment on your part. Consider the compassion of the attorney, whether they have the time and resources to devote to your lawsuit. If you sense the attorney is too busy to talk with you about the matter, you probably are correct. Also, research the attorney’s reputation with similar cases.


How are Negligence Claims Against Daycare Centers Handled?

When a child is injured at a daycare center in an accident, parents may want to make a claim for damages against the daycare center.

In Texas, injury claims involving a minor are handled differently than if the injured person is an adult. With an injury to a minor, even where a settlement is reached, a lawsuit must be filed. A judge will appoint an ad litem, an attorney, to advise the court on the fairness of any settlement agreement to protect the interests of the minor.

If the case is not settled, the general rules of litigation apply, and the burden of proof falls upon the family to prove negligence by the daycare center and the damages incurred.

Daycare centers must operate under safety rules promulgated by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services under the minimum standards for childcare centers in Texas. Choosing an experienced attorney for daycare negligence litigation is essential.
