Inadequate Number of Staff Did Not Appropriately Separate Children by Age

The parents of a boy who was bullied while attending daycare are seeking to hold the facility liable for their child’s physical and emotional suffering. The parents, who have filed a lawsuit against the daycare, allege that their child was the victim of bullying for more than two months and that the daycare failed to address this issue even after the parents brought it up. According to ABC News, the boy ultimately suffered facial wounds when an older child deliberately knocked him down, prompting the parents to file the lawsuit.

The parents claim that the daycare and three of its employees were negligent in allowing the child’s injury and the other instances of bullying to occur. Their lawsuit alleges that the daycare was inadequately staffed and that the defendants didn’t separate the children in an age-appropriate manner. Furthermore, the parents contend that the employees failed to warn them of the bullying or take adequate measures to prevent it.

How a Daycare Injury Lawyer Can Help

Children who are injured at daycare facilities and their families may be entitled to compensation for damages resulting from their injuries, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages

The families of those who have died may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.

If the actions causing injury are malicious or so reckless that intent to harm can be inferred, the responsible party can be liable for punitive damages to punish wrongful conduct and deter similar conduct in the future.
