What Kinds of Injuries Happen in a Daycare?

Playground injuries are one of the most common types of daycare injuries. Poor maintenance, failing to design the playground with a cushioned surface, and hazardous objects on the playground all contribute to many injuries at daycare centers each year.

Accidents involving falling objects are another common source of daycare injuries. Children attempt to climb shelves or bookcases or try to pull down objects over their heads. This can result in severe head injuries, even brain trauma.

Burns from bottles heated too much are another common cause of injuries at daycare centers. When staff members fail to monitor the temperature of bottles, burns often result.

Who Is Liable for Daycare Injuries in Montana?

Ultimately, the daycare owner is responsible for the injuries that occur in their daycare. Employees who are negligent in the care of the children in their charge may also be liable for injuries the children sustain. In some cases, poorly maintained premises may cause injuries. If the daycare owner leases the property, the property owner may share some responsibility for the injury.

How Do I File a Claim for Daycare Negligence?

To file a claim for your child's injuries, it will be necessary to show that the daycare facility had a duty of care to your child at the time of the injury. You must show that the daycare center was negligent in providing the appropriate care for your child and that your child's injuries were the result of the negligent care. Your Montana daycare negligence lawyer will help you collect the evidence you need to file a claim as well as acquire any expert testimony or depositions that you will need to establish your case.

What Damages Can You Recover in the State of Montana?

The state of Montana provides for legally pursuing compensation against a negligent daycare center. You may seek both economic and non-economic damages for your child's daycare injury.

Economic damages include costs incurred because of your child's injuries. Medical expenses including hospital bills, doctor bills, and prescription medication are economic damages for which you may seek compensation. If you miss time at work, you may seek compensation for lost wages while you take care of your injured child.

Non-economic damages do not come with a receipt and you cannot measure them objectively. Money cannot remedy your child's pain and suffering; nevertheless, you can seek compensation for their suffering because of their injury. Mental and emotional suffering the child endures may be compensated as well. Usually, lawyers will negotiate the value of non-economic damages during a settlement, or the courts may determine the value if your case goes to trial.
