Report: Daycare Had Its License Already Suspended In 2015
A Colorado daycare is again under fire now that a 14-month-old child faces lifelong challenges due to burns he suffered while under the care of its employees. According to CBS Denver, the same Lakewood, Colorado, facility was cited in June 2015 for waiting eight hours before notifying parents of a child’s head injury suffered at the facility. The parents of the child involved in the current case are making similar accusations.
The daycare center has since had its license suspended by the Department of Human Services following the incident, which occurred when the young child tugged on a crockpot cord, spilling boiling water and suffering severe burns to his abdomen and extremities. The child’s parents allege that workers at the daycare left the child suffering and failed to secure proper medical care, choosing instead to call the child’s mother repeatedly. The parents allege the facility failed to contact the father, who was within close proximity to the facility and could have sought prompt help. Further investigation revealed that the same center had been the subject of multiple past complaints, including allegations of insufficient care and neglect, the website reported.
How a Colorado Daycare Injury Lawyer Can Help
Children who are injured at daycare facilities 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.
