Daycare Accident Attorneys in Phoenix, Arizona
Daycare accidents can be caused by a multitude of things such as negligence or child abuse. A parent's main purpose in using a daycare is so the daycare employees will care for the well being of their child. Daycare accidents can potentially cause a child pain, suffering, and/or permanent emotional and physical damage.
Daycare Accident Preventions
It is the duty and obligation of a local Phoenix daycare to ensure the safety of all children. The following are some necessary steps a daycare should take in order to prevent a day care accident.
- In order to make certain no child is harmed by the daycare surroundings, the daycare should heed all safety codes and regulations of the State.
- The employees should be knowledgeable on the handling of children, especially to help prevent shaken baby syndrome. If a baby is shaken and experiences shaken baby syndrome, the baby may potentially experience brain injuries, spinal-cord injuries, bleeding in the eyes, or, in some cases, even death.
- In order to avoid child abuse, the daycare also needs to be conscious and aware of its employees and their actions around children.
Claims Involving Minor Children
When a minor (someone under 18 years of age) has a personal injury claim, in many cases, there is an extra set of procedures that apply to protect the interests of the minor. Specifically, the minor, usually through their attorney, will petition the probate court for approval of the minor settlement. This includes the amount of the settlement, the medical expenses to be paid from the settlement, the attorney's fees and costs, and the net settlement for the minor claimant. A more detailed explanation of this process is explained on our Minor Child Injury Pages.
Claims against Government Agencies or Public Entities
When a government or public employee or agency is negligent and causes an injury, there is a markedly different process involved as compared to a claim against an individual or private business. There is a much shorter time frame to bring a claim and a lawsuit. Therefore, there is an increased urgency to obtain legal counsel to timely submit a claim against a government agency or public entity. A more detailed explanation is available on our Government or Public Entities Claims Pages.
