I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I SUBMIT MY FORM?

Atlanta Daycare Negligence Attorney
Helping You Get Answers and Compensation

Choosing your daycare provider is a huge step in your life. After all, you are trusting them with your child’s safety.

Unfortunately, not all daycare providers live up to the standards that they claim to uphold. Alternatively, well-meaning daycare providers can find themselves overwhelmed. Accidents can occur when daycare providers fail to provide adequate supervision or care, resulting in serious injury or even death to your child. Unfortunately, some even go so far as to commit abuse. If your child was injured at daycare, you need to focus on your child’s health. Atlanta daycare negligence attorney Amber Gilormo can help you hold the daycare responsible and get the compensation you are entitled to so that your child can get the care they deserve.

Our Atlanta Daycare Negligence Attorney Explains Types of Accidents

It only takes an instant for an accident to occur with children. Daycare negligence can take on many forms, whether the result of a single negligent employee or due to systemic failures by the facility to ensure your child’s safety. Common forms of negligence in daycare can occur as follows:

  • Inadequate staffing or poor management
  • Ignoring dietary or medical needs
  • Failure to screen employees or ensure they are properly trained
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Failure to provide a safe environment or address known hazards
  • Lack of safety protocols
  • Failure to follow state, county, or municipal regulations
  • Inadequate supervision

Choking incidents are common at daycare facilities and can result in serious injury or death. This can happen when the staff are not supervising children while they are eating, or they have easy access to known choking hazards, or the caregiver has given them food that is not appropriate for their age.

Many childcare facilities throughout Atlanta and Georgia provide transportation services. In these situations, the employees have a duty to drive safely. Accidents can occur due to the driver’s failure to pay full attention or follow the rules of the road.

Sometimes you might not realize negligence has contributed to your child’s injury. We advise the mothers, fathers, step-parents and grandparents we work with to seek guidance from an Atlanta daycare negligence attorney right after an injury. During your initial call to our office, we can determine if there is an at-fault party that should be held liable.

Proving Your Day Care Negligence Claim

While it may seem obvious that your daycare provider is to blame for the accident, it’s the job of your Atlanta daycare negligence attorney to prove that they were negligent. This can be more difficult than it appears. Proving these personal injury claims includes the following elements:

  • The daycare facility owed you a duty of care;
  • The daycare facility breached that duty;
  • Your child was injured as a result of that breach; and
  • Your child would not have been injured were it not for that breach.

The first element is usually easy to prove. The other elements can be more difficult. For example, in a choking case, the daycare may argue that the child was adequately supervised and the Heimlich maneuver was administered promptly. In other situations, they may argue that your child would have been injured even though they breached their duty of care. For example, the facility may have been in violation of County ordinances, but that breach did not lead to the accident. A knowledgeable Atlanta daycare negligence lawyer can evaluate your case and determine whether your daycare provider should be held accountable. 

Common Child Injuries Caused by Negligence

As a parent you understand that even common, everyday items and situations can present certain hazards for young children. Without proper supervision or careful consideration, accidents can happen very easily. Here are some of the most common ways that young children are injured at daycare:

  • Head injuries due to falls
  • Burns from hot liquids or hot metals
  • Heat exhaustion and dehydration
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Suffocation
  • Injuries suffered while lost
  • Injuries and death as a result of being forgotten in a vehicle on a hot day
  • Choking
  • Illness or death due to receiving the wrong medication or failing to provide medication
  • Allergic reactions

If you suspect that your child’s injury was the result of negligence, trust your instincts and discuss your case with an experienced Atlanta daycare negligence attorney.

Accidents Can Lead to Negligent Supervision Claims in Georgia

People often think that no one is to blame in an accident. While this may hold true in some situations, it isn’t always the case. Everyone has a legal obligation to take reasonable care to prevent injuries to others. In the context of daycare, the people in charge of your child’s safety and welfare have an even higher duty to ensure that your child isn’t injured. If your child was injured due to the daycare’s negligent supervision of your child, we believe that they should be held liable for your medical expenses and other losses.

What Your Claim May Be Worth

When deciding whether to pursue a claim, it is necessary to understand what your claim may be worth. Your claim should include the following components:

  • Medical expenses resulting from the accident, including co-pays, deductibles, and future or expected medical expenses
  • Lost income due to caring for your child or seeking medical treatment
  • The pain and suffering your child experienced as a result of the accident

Many negligence cases settle for far less than they are worth. Understanding the value of your claim can help you make an informed decision as to how to proceed. During your initial, free consultation with our Atlanta daycare negligence attorney we can answer questions about the potential value of your claim.

Our Atlanta Daycare Negligence Attorney Can Also Pursue a Wrongful Death of a Child Lawsuit

Tragically, some daycare accidents result in death. In these cases, parents have the right to pursue a claim against the daycare provider for their losses. This is the case even if the parents have separated or divorced. Your claim for damages can include the following components:

  • Your medical expenses arising from the accident
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Any pain and suffering your child suffered prior to death

In addition to these easily-identifiable damages, you may also be able to include the child’s future earnings as well as other non-economic damages such as the emotional value of the loss of your child. Georgia does not typically award punitive damages in wrongful death cases – as a result, it is incredibly important that you seek the full value of your claim.
