Tucson Daycare Negligence

Daycare Negligence Attorney

It is very important that you pay special attention when selecting a daycare for your children.  The State of Arizona has reported neglect and even abuse at these facilities.  The injuries to children from daycare negligence typically include physical damage and long lasting emotional losses after daycare negligence.

What is Daycare Negligence?

When negligence is an issue in the case it is the duty of the court to define it and apply the pertinent facts thereto whether requested to do so or not. Southwest Cotton Co. v. Ryan, 22 Ariz. 520, 199 P. 124; Reah v. Jupin, 68 Ariz. 335, 206 P.2d 558, 559; Riser v. Herr, 187 Okl. 211, 102 P.2d 178; Sartin v. Moran-Buckner Co., 189 Okl. 178, 114 P.2d 938. Stallcup v. Coscarart, 79 Ariz. 42, 282 P.2d 791 (Ariz., 1955). Typical negligent and abusive actions at Tucson daycare centers include:

  • Failing to properly feed the children at the daycare.  Malnutrition, or feeding the children foods that they are allergic to, can cause severe harm to the children under the care or negligent providers.
  • Failing to provide a safe environment, or safe premises.  An unsafe environment can lead to injuries, including the loss of fingers, severe head injuries, choking, or allowing the children to have access to medicines or toxic substances.
  • Failing to screen employees (negligent hiring).  Day care centers must screen potential employees by conducting background checks and proper interviews.  These checks can keep incompetent or dangerous employees from caring for your children.  Unfortunately, these checks do not occur all the time, and the losses to children can be devastating.

Only those qualified to provide care should be hired by a daycare.  Any deviation from the highest standards constitutes daycare negligence can cause injury to children.  Accidents after daycare negligence are common and they may occur even after a little lack of supervision from the employees. 

Common day care accidents and injuries

Injuries after daycare negligence occurs may include:

  • Accidents Involving Toys.  Toys that have been involved in safety recalls, or toys that are too little for children should not be used at day cares.  Children may be injured by these small or unsafe toys.  Choking incidents have been reported.
  • Accidents Involving Other Children.  Children at the daycare may hurt each other if they are not supervised properly.  The persons providing care for the children should be familiar with the children's behavior and should take precautions to prevent the children from causing injury to one another.
  • Injuries Involving Food.  Food poisoning may occur from spoiled or contaminated food.  Other children may have an allergic reaction to certain foods and may even need hospital care.
  • Physical Injuries.  Cuts, bruises, and broken bones may indicate that the child's injury was caused by abuse or negligence.
