Daycare Negligence

Columbia Daycare Negligence Attorneys

Selecting a daycare provider, nursery school or camp can be one of the most difficult decisions a parent or guardian may make. As a parent or guardian, it is your number one priority to keep your children safe and when they are at a daycare, nursery school or camp, you want them to be taken care of and kept safe as well. It is the responsibility of the day care provider or teacher in charge to protect the child from harm or injury. You trust those taking care of your children to make decisions necessary to protect them. While most providers aim to take the best care of all the children in their care, sometimes they fail to protect them from injury or harm. Some day care providers will even willingly cause harm to the children in their care, causing trauma for the child. In these cases, a South Carolina daycare negligence attorney can help you greatly.

Proving that your child is the victim of day care negligence lies with you. You must prove that negligence by the provider led to injury or harm to the child, causing damage such as emotional suffering or medical bills. Bernstein and Bernstein can help you do this. When your child isn’t in your presence, you want to be one hundred percent certain that they are in the supervision of someone who will take care of them and keep them just as safe as you would. Sometimes accidents are unavoidable and injury or harm can be the result of those accidents, even when all the rules and precautions are followed. The supervision and safety of the children should be the primary intent of all day care facilities, nursery schools and/or camps.
