Cedar Rapids Failure to Supervise Attorneys
The most important duty of daycare center employees is the act of supervising the children present. The entire basis for these facilities is that your children will be closely monitored while you are away, so it seems impossible to think that a lack of supervision would ever lead to harm. Unfortunately, this is one of the most common causes of injury for children when they are in daycare centers.
If your child has been injured because of a daycare employee’s failure to provide adequate supervision, you may be entitled to financial compensation to address the harm suffered by your child. Contact the Cedar Rapids failure to supervise attorneys of Leehey Olson Law, P.C., at (319) 294-4424 to speak to a compassionate and committed legal representative about your case today.
Examples of a Failure to Supervise
There are a number of ways children can get hurt in daycare facilities due to a lack of supervision. These include:
- Falling from heights
- Choking on toys, food, or other objects
- Injuries sustained due to physical altercations with other children
- Ingesting dangerous substances
- Animal bites and stings
All of these dangers can be limited or eliminated with proper supervision and guidance from the daycare employees. If your child has been harmed in this or any other way, the supervisor may be held liable under the law. There is no excuse for a daycare employee putting your child in danger because of their own carelessness.
