Daycare Injury Lawyer

Philadelphia Lawyer for Daycare Injury

One of the hardest experiences for a parent is allowing a Daycare to watch over your child while you work. It is equally difficult for some children to separate from their parent(s) when attending. For the parent, the primary concern is always the safety of their child while they are under the wing of a Daycare center. Unfortunately, not every child who attends a Daycare comes out of the experience without an injury of some sort.

The National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) collects data which is used by government agencies such as the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The NEISS, which collects current injury data associated with consumer products from U.S. Hospital Emergency Departments from across the country, estimates the number and types of Consumer Product related injuries. In 2014, there were over 70,000 injuries to children between the age of 0-4 from nursery equipment in the United States alone. Playgrounds account for another approximately 60,000 injuries annually in the USA among children 0-4 years of age.  This does not include the injuries that happen inside the Daycare.

Children, if left alone, are prone to getting injured from tables tipping, chairs, window shades, lead paint, assaults by other children, and a host of other injury producing possibilities. At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., our attorneys and staff have the skill and experience necessary to represent you on behalf of your child. If you or a loved one has a child who was injured while in the custody and care of a child Daycare center, give us a call. The consultation is always free, guaranteed.

When a parent or parents enroll their child or children in Daycare, they are paying for those employees to care and watch over their children to keep them safe. Most injuries that occur while a child is at a Daycare are due to neglect on the part of an employee or employees who staff that Daycare facility. Many times, there are not enough employees to properly supervise the amount of children enrolled. Other times, it is a case of simple neglect which leads to a child getting injured. The statistics listed above prove that if a child is not properly supervised, Serious Injuries can result, and that they can happen with the most innocuous products, like a window shade that has pull lines which can get wrapped around a child’s throat. Playground injuries as well as injuries which occur with blankets or food are commonplace with children in daycare. Here at The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., we find injuries at Daycares to be completely unacceptable. If there are not enough employees to watch over the children at a Daycare, then they should not be operating.

Other Injuries that Have Occurred with Children 4 and Under and in Some Cases Even Older Children Include:

  • Brain damage from lead paint poisoning.
  • Fractures from improperly being supervised around other kids, especially in playgrounds.
  • Suffocation from pillows or blanket where the child is not being monitored.
  • Strangulations from chords to window shades.
  • Poisoning.
  • Injuries from furniture tipping.
  • Cuts and bruises from improper supervision.
  • Mental Injuries from abusive workers at the Daycare.

At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., our legal team is able and ready to handle any case against a Daycare center. Call us any time, or email us for a prompt response. The consultation is always free.
