Care Takers are Responsible in New York

When you leave your child in the care of employees at a daycare center, after school program, or any other child care facility, it is the responsibility of the care takers to ensure that your child is properly supervised. If the individual who is in charge of supervising your child acts in a negligent manner and does not provide reasonable care, which results in an injury, he or she should be held accountable for their actions. If your child has suffered serious physical injuries as the result of negligent supervision, you have the right to take legal action against the negligent person or party.

Child care facilities should provide all children with a safe and comforting environment, free from any potential hazards or dangers. All facilities must conform to local and/or state safety regulations to guarantee that every effort has been made to prevent serious accidents. Some preventative measures include having written guidelines for taking children offsite, having emergency drills (for fire and earthquake preparedness), and keeping all unsafe materials or products away from children.

In addition to providing children with a safe environment, child care employees should be trained in the necessary emergency procedures in the case of a medical emergency or natural disaster.

Serious Results of Negligent Supervision

Some accidents that may be the result of negligent supervision include:

In order to recover damages, the plaintiff's side must prove that the child care worker, or child care facility, was in fact negligent. With the representation of an experienced lawyer, you may be able to prevent the careless defendant from allowing other children to suffer serious injuries. You may also be able to recover monetary compensation for your child's injuries, and injury related expenses such as reimbursement for medical and hospital bills, pain and suffering, and other accident related costs.
