When we take our children to daycare, it’s often because we have busy lives but want to ensure our kids are in a safe environment and accompanied by responsible adults. We entrust these caretakers with our children’s lives, meaning learning about an emergency or serious injuries can easily lead to frustration, anger, and confusion, among other feelings. Injuries and emergencies can lead to significant medical expenses, but determining who is responsible for paying these costs is not always clear.
If you trust your child’s welfare in the hands of a daycare provider or facility, and that trust is broken in some way, the daycare is more often responsible than you might initially think. And while you may default to assuming responsibility for these expenses, you may not need to face this financial burden alone. We can help you determine who is liable for your child’s injuries and medical expenses, explain whether or not you should take your kid to the doctor, and offer you vital support during recovery.
Who Is Responsible for a Daycare Accident in Texas?
Determining who is responsible for your or your child’s injuries is essential to take legal action. Taking legal action against the liable parties is often the only way to receive fair compensation for medical expenses and other losses. Depending on the circumstances, any of the following individuals may be responsible:
- Daycare assistants
- Facility employer
- Equipment or parts manufacturer (i.e., for toys and playground structures)
- Any others present at the time of injury
Further responsibility may lie with others not included here, such as when procedures for safety are followed or daycare personnel applies appropriate medical aid or action in a timely fashion. This may mean fault lies with a medical facility or provider. For help determining who is responsible for your child’s injuries, we suggest you speak with a lawyer. A daycare accident attorney can help you determine who and how many individuals are responsible, determine the value of your claims, and build arguments in favor of your child’s recovery.
How Can a Lawyer Help With Your Texas Daycare Accident Case?
If you are open to taking legal action and want to prioritize receiving adequate compensation for your child’s injuries, we strongly recommend you work with a Texas daycare accident lawyer. Legal action can be very effective when fighting for compensation and justice, but we recommend you refrain from representing your child or yourself. Working with a lawyer instead is far more likely to bring you the success and results you need to focus on recovery.
Your Texas daycare accident attorney can help in several ways, including the following:
- Collect and analyze evidence
- Lead or join investigations
- Complete and file paperwork
- Speak on your behalf
- Manage your calendar and appointments
- Refer you to doctors and helpful specialists
- Consider potentially liable parties
- Find witnesses
- Provide you with valuable resources and information
- Legal knowledge
- Negotiation tactics
- Level the playing field
- Handle other insurance companies and legal representatives
- Significantly reduce stress
We strongly recommend you speak with and retain a lawyer as soon as possible to improve your possibility of success. This will help your daycare accident attorney have sufficient time to familiarize themselves with your case, collect and analyze evidence, build arguments in your favor, and accurately estimate the value of your claims.
