School & Daycare Accidents
Have you been injured?
Take Action Today!
Most parents would like to assume that their child’s safety is of high importance at their chosen school or daycare facility. The promises made by these learning centers often include provisions for proper health and wellness and a “one-of-a-kind learning environment” centered around the child’s safety and stability. This tactic allows parents to rest easier knowing that their child is in the hands of a trusted school employee. But when the facility lacks the staffing or even the resources to follow through with these basic necessities, the children are often the ones left to suffer the dangerous (and sometimes even fatal) consequences.
