In Need of a Daycare/Childcare Negligence Attorney in Greenville?
At the David W. Martin Law Group, our Greenville childcare accident, injury, and fatality attorneys know that leaving your kids with anyone other than a trusted family member can be a difficult and scary transition for parents throughout South Carolina.
Whether you are returning to work as a new parent, or are filling the gaps between the school year, childcare is more than expensive, it is a necessary component for most parents at one point or another until their kids are old enough to safely watch after themselves.
According to Childcare Aware America, over 12 million children are in childcare programs across the nation, including childcare centers, family childcare homes, and in-home childcare, where the child is cared for in his/her own home by someone other than the parents.
No matter who watches your children, they deserve to be taken care of in your absence in a safe and flourishing environment. When there is even a single lapse in safety, kids can be severely injured, or tragically lose their lives to negligence or abuse. If you have endured the unthinkable, and your child has been injured or lost their life while they were in daycare, contact our skilled personal injury attorneys in Greenville County for help today.
Your family has gone through enough. Let us take it from here.
What are the Most Common Injuries Associated with Daycare and Childcare Facilities?
There are an estimated 856,000 daycare operators in the United States. According to South Carolina Childcare, their agency regulates approximately 2,500 childcare providers that are required to be licensed, registered, approved, or legally exempt based on where the program operates, the hours they are in operation, and how many children are in their care.
No matter their childcare designation, children are suffering significant injuries and the tragic loss of lives throughout daycare facilities in South Carolina, and across the nation.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, the leading causes of child unintentional injury include:
- Motor vehicle crashes.
Other injuries caused by neglect, abuse, improper supervision or staff ratios, overcrowding, inexperienced, unqualified, and/or unlicensed staff, and unsafe premises may also lead to:
- Allergic reactions.
- Broken bones.
- Dislocated joints.
- Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries.
- Internal injuries.
- Sexual abuse.
Unfortunately, these statistics do not reveal the true number of daycare and childcare facilities because the different designations — and the number of unlicensed providers — are not reported in the same categories. Regardless of what the numbers say, if your child has suffered an injury or lost their life because of negligence or abuse in a childcare facility in South Carolina, we want to help you hold the liable party accountable.
