Recalled Products in Use
5% of the child care settings had products that had been recalled by CPSC.
Using recalled nursery products and toys can be a hazard to young children.
- Other common causes of injuries at day care facilities include:
- Electric outlets not covered
- Sharp corners of furniture are not covered
- The toys are not kept clean
- Children are not protected from strangers outside
- The playground does not have impact-absorbing surfaces.
- Lack of proper supervision.
- Caring for too many children for the license
- Failure to provide proper safety measures
- Inappropriate sexual contact with a minor
- Child abuse
- Dangerous conditions at the center
- Playing in hazardous areas including the street
- Playing unsafe games
- Dangerous horseplay with other children
Parents entrust the health and safety of their children in daycare providers
and child care centers while they are working. While the young children
are at these facilities, the parents are promised that their children
will be given the best possible care and supervision and that they will
be watched throughout the day. Sadly, because of the negligence of either
a day care employee or daycare worker, some of these children get seriously
injured. In nearly all daycare accidents, a caretaker failed to properly
guarantee the safety of the child by failing to watch the child and leaving
the child unattended. Additionally, in many daycare injury cases, the
kid would not have suffered serious injuries or trauma if the child had
been properly supervised.
Daycare accidents are categorized under an area of law referred to as premises
liability. Premises liability laws govern the responsibility of owners
to maintain safe property conditions and to forewarn persons of existing
hazardous conditions. If owners fail to implement preventative measures,
and a person is injured while in a daycare, the owner would be considered
liable for all injuries the person sustained.
When a person has sustained daycare accident injuries, he/she is legally
entitled to seek compensation from the landowner. A daycare accident victim
may seek monetary damages for his/her: medical expenses, injuries, lost
wages, lost future income, physical and mental impairment, and pain and
suffering. The Lassen Law Firm, Pennsylvania personal injury attorneys,

Nothing is more important than the safety of children. However, the harsh
reality is that more young children die from injuries than from any disease.
And because so many children are in day care centers at least at some
point in their life, it is essential that these settings be as safe as
they can be and their employees as careful as possible. Failing to keep
daycare facilities safe for children may render daycare centers liable
for losses associated with injuries sustained on their premises.
If your kid has been injured in a daycare center, kindergarten, nursery
school, preschool, or Head Start, you and your family may be struggling
not only with the physical repercussions the child may have, but also
