Has Your Child Been Abused Or Neglected At A Day Care Center?
If you are a working parent, you experience something five days a week that is very common: you drop your child off at day care in the morning and you pick your child up at day care in the evening. If your child goes to a day care center, there is no doubt that you did your research into the facility. You felt confident with your choice, believing that the day care personnel in charge of your children would be competent and caring.
Now that your child has sustained an injury, you might be wondering if you missed some warning signs. You might be wondering how long the day care center has been abusive or neglectful and if other families are affected as well.

Was Your Child Abused or Neglected While in the Care of a Day Care Facility?
Day care centers can range from in-home privately run day cares to more commercialized centers. Each type of center must comply with strict state regulations that are designed to ensure the safety and security of your children.
Abuse and neglect can be due to improper background checks of day care employees, understaffing and other factors. Some abuse may be physical, some may be sexual, and in very tragic situations, it may be deadly. Shaken baby syndrome is one type of deadly child abuse caused by shaking a baby so much that he or she sustains brain injury. Positional asphyxia is another type of fatal condition — placing a child in such a way that he or she cannot breathe.
If your family is experiencing the heartbreaking tragedy of an infant or child death, The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, extends our deepest condolences. We will take on all of your legal battles, fight for your family’s rights and hold negligent parties accountable for their disgraceful actions.
