With the school year coming to a close and more options for reopening venues as Covid-19 restrictions are eased, many families are looking into summer daycare, camps, and other activities for their children. While many will embrace this year’s summer programs for children, safety concerns still weigh on parents’ minds, and not just because of the risk of Covid-19. Each year accidents causing injury occur at daycares and camps.
Working on legal claims involving children’s injuries presents its own challenges and considerations. Gilormo Injury Law treats all of our clients with the utmost care and concern but understands that working with children who have suffered from an injury takes a special level of compassion and empathy. Rest assured that your Atlanta child injury lawyer will diligently represent your child’s best interest during each step of your family’s claim.
Summer Camps Respond to Covid-19
This year, in addition to all the safety concerns parents consider before enrolling their child in a summer program, there is the additional concern of Covid-19. The CDC has issued guidelines for summer camps and programs. Being aware of these guidelines as well as local regulations can help you make an informed decision about the best environment for your child to be in this summer. Do not hesitate to make in-depth inquiries into specific summer camp policies. And if you find your daycare or camp has neglected their duty or violated a law that results in injury to your child, whether Covid related or otherwise, do not hesitate to contact an Atlanta daycare negligence attorney.
Popular Summer Activities for Children and Families
One of the great benefits of a summer camp is the special visits to other venues. Even summer daycare programs often look for ways to make the summer season more festive for the children in their care. In addition to special trips to parks for picnics and field games, excursions to popular area attractions fill summer wishlists.
Popular area attractions include:
- Lake Lanier, offering many activities and attractions for children and families.
- The Atlanta Aquarium, which also offers a summer camp, Camp H2O.
- Local college and university camps for children.
- Chattahoochee River
Negligence and Injuries in Summer Daycare Camp Activities
Our hope is that wonderful memories are made through whatever activities and programs a child participates in this summer. However, accidents happen. Tragically, it was only a few years ago when a daycare excursion resulted in the death of a young child.
If your child is injured while attending a summer daycare program or camp, working with an Atlanta daycare negligence attorney is important to preserve your child’s case. Negligence for daycare or summer camp programs could involve issues of inadequate or improper staffing, lack of maintenance of facilities, not following regulations or safety requirements, or even abuse of children.
