Daycare Negligence

HAS YOUR DAYCARE OR SCHOOL BEEN NEGLIGENT?

SCHOOL OR DAYCARE NEGLIGENCE

What is ‘School or Daycare’ Negligence?

A distressing call from your child’s school or daycare will send any parent into instant panic.

When you send your little one to school or daycare, you place an enormous amount of trust in teachers, caregivers and daycare employees to look after them.

The negligence of school or daycare occurs when an employee takes any action that deviates from the required standard of care, putting a child at risk. If that negligence causes harm or injury, the school, daycare or employee responsible can – and should – be held accountable.

While schools and daycare centres have procedures in place to protect children and minimize the risk of accidents, mistakes and errors in judgment happen.

In many cases, and thankfully, the effects of any negligence by school or daycare employees are temporary and the child recovers quickly. But more serious child injuries – especially head and brain injuries where the impact is not immediately obvious – could mean a lifetime of recovery or disability.

If the injury is a result of professional negligence, our BC school and day care accident lawyers can guide you through the litigation and rehabilitation process.

Common Negligence in School or Daycare Cases

Harm or injury to a child can be caused by:

  • Inadequate supervision at school, daycare or on school trips
  • Unsafe playground equipment
  • Defective children’s products (e.g. high chairs, beds, car seats, toys)
  • School bus, car or pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Exposure to animals (which may bite or attack)
  • Exposure to poisons or chemicals that have not been properly secured
  • Any negligence that can result in suffocation, choking, drowning or burns.

Accidents at recreational facilities outside of school and daycare include, for example: swimming pools, day camps, play centres, gymnasiums, martial arts or dance studios. While different, standards of care still apply.
