When you leave your child at preschool, you expect the officials there to protect them from harm. But what if this does not happen? What if your child is injured while in preschool? The video is short, but it gives some insight into what is required to build a legal case against the daycare center in which your child was injured.
Young children are very active. However, they do not have complete control of their tiny bodies and are constantly falling and bumping their knees and heads against things.
This is just a fact of being a young child. If an accident happens and there was no way to prevent it, you will have a difficult time building a legal case against a preschool. For a lawsuit to result in your favor, you must provide evidence that there was something that could have been done to prevent the injury. Moreover, you must prove that the provider fell below the minimum acceptable standard of care.
In some instances, this is not hard to do. If the person charged with looking after your child was instead looking at their phone or chatting with a colleague, it can be the proof you need of negligence. So the answer to the question is yes, you can sue the preschool in which your child was injured.
