You Deserve Compensation for Your Injury Pursue Justice with Jenkins Utley, P.C. On Your Side

Lack of Supervision

Turn to Our Atlanta Daycare Negligence Attorneys

Parents entrust daycares to supervise and attend to their children while they are away. This involves constant care and trained personnel. When children are not properly supervised, they are in danger of injuring themselves, going missing, and more. When daycares fail to adequately supervise the children in their care, they are acting negligently. Any injury or harm to a child that transpires due to this negligence is grounds for legal action. The party (or parties) responsible must be held accountable for their inability to watch over that child.

Jenkins Utley, P.C. is the law firm you can turn to if your child has been injured due to the lack of supervision at a daycare facility. Our Atlanta daycare negligence attorneys are prepared to fight for your child’s rights, allowing you to tend to your family during this stressful time.

How Supervision Can Fall Short

Daycares are places where children are left to be watched over—and that’s exactly what any licensed daycare should do while providing a fun and informative environment. As with schools, there are many laws and guidelines daycares must follow to ensure the safety of the children under their care. For instance, children must not be left exposed to unsafe materials and should never wander off-site alone. Children do not have the same sense of judgment as adults, especially young children; they rely on an adult’s supervision to stay out of harm’s way and dangerous situations.

Daycare providers should always be present, but sometimes fall short on supervision when they:

  • Are out of earshot
  • Do not warn children of dangerous situations
  • Are not within sight of the child
  • Do not escort children who exit or enter rooms
  • Do not mediate aggressive behavior
  • Do not keep a continual headcount of all children

Injuries often occur when there is lack of attention. Injuries can range from mild to severe, or even fatal in nature.

Common daycare injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Bruises
  • Drowning
  • Unintentional poisoning
  • Electrical burns
  • Choking
  • Asphyxiation

While supervision lapses may not be intentional, they often occur due to poorly staffed daycares and lack of training. To prove an injury case regarding lack of supervision, the parents or guardians of a child must show that the daycare employee(s) acted unreasonably.
