What Are the Risks of Your Child Being Injured at Daycare?
According to the Office on Child Abuse and Neglect of the U.S. Health and Human Services, less than one percent of child abuse occurs in childcare settings. Although abuse in childcare facilities is uncommon, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t some risk considering the high number of children in daycare. The same report indicated 39 states have reported 5,321 abuse or neglect cases in daycare facilities.
Warning signs of daycare abuse can include:
- Bruises or cuts
- Night terrors and nightmares
- Apprehension when being dropped off at daycare
- Sudden aggressive or rude behavior
- Flinching at sudden movements
- Poor concentration or memory
- Frequent crying
While accidents can strike under the best of circumstances, they are particularly painful when they take place in a daycare setting, where children are under the care of trained professionals charged with keeping them safe. When a child’s injury is caused or even made worse by a daycare provider’s failure to deliver appropriate care, or to take sufficient precautions against foreseeable harm, the daycare could be held liable.
