In the United States people have very busy schedules. They rush to work in the morning and come home late in the evening. They usually eat out, and they come home exhausted. One challenge people face connected to their busy work schedules is taking care of their young children. Unfortunately, not every family has the luxury of being able to allow one parent to leave work to take of young children in the family.
As a result, many families have to leave their young children at day care centers during the day. Parents leave their children at day centers with the expectation that their children will be well taken care of.
Unfortunately, however, this is not always the case. Sometimes, day care centers do not take proper care of the children under their supervision. They may be rough with the children. They may not take care of their food needs thoroughly. And, they may not make sure the children are safe.
While these problems are very serious, the last one has very specific, dangerous ramifications. If young children are not properly taken care of, they can get seriously injured. They may swallow small objects that get stuck in their throats. They may put plastic bags over their heads. They may fall into a pool. They may burn themselves by touching a scalding surface or liquid.
All of these things can occur as a result of neglect at day care centers. Moreover, these things can even result in children’s deaths.
If your child has suffered because of neglect at a day care center, you may be entitled to damages. Contact a Waukesha personal injury lawyer of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.® by calling (800) 242-2874.
