Portland Daycare Negligence Attorney
Was your child injured under negligent circumstances? We can help!
In today’s society, more and more families have begun to place their children under the supervision of a daycare facility—most without thinking twice about the level of attention that their child will receive. Parents shouldn’t have to worry about their children’s safety when they make the decision to place them in daycare, but the truth remains that not all facilities are qualified, adequately staffed, or properly trained to look after the well-being of a child.
In the event that a young boy or girl is caused serious harm, it is the family’s right to hold the responsible party liable. A Portland daycare negligence attorney from the Law Offices of Timothy Grabe can help you successfully prove that the daycare’s staff or administrators negligently contributed to your child’s injuries.
Examining the Various Types of Daycare Negligence
Nothing is more frightening to a parent than finding out that their child has been injured—especially when it has happened under someone else’s supervision. Many are quick to place blame, but it is important to understand that accidents happen. If it has been established that the incident could have been prevented through an adequate level of care, however, this is a different story entirely. Under these circumstances, the victim’s family may be entitled to compensation.
This would be the case if a daycare facility had:
- Failed to adequately supervise the children
- Failed to hire a sufficient number of staff members
- Failed to follow state or federal child care policies
- Failed to maintain a safe and secure environment
- Failed to recognize and stop the abuse of a child
- Taken a child off the premises without permission
Obtaining Damages for Child Injuries in Portland, Oregon
In cases that involve daycare negligence, it is not uncommon for a child to suffer serious, if not fatal, injuries. There is really no telling how dangerous a facility can be if the management fails to conduct routine maintenance, follow proper building codes, and/or implement necessary safety procedures. Although monetary compensation may not be enough to account for the harm that a child has suffered, it is one way to hold the negligent party accountable.
Additionally, it will help to cover the costs of any medical treatment that was acquired—which, in some case, can be quite expensive. If the accident was serious enough in nature to cause the death of your child, you also have the option to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In either case, it is recommended that you consult with a Portland injury attorney.
