Millions of parents rely on caregivers at daycares and other childcare facilities to watch over their precious children every day. Discovering that your child has been injured or has died while in the care of those who should have ensured your child’s health and safety can be devastating. If your child was injured as a result of negligence on the part of the daycare, you may want to consider bringing a suit against it.
Daycares and other childcare providers are expected to meet a standard of care. South Carolina code regulates approximately 2,500 facilities in the state, determining staff-to-child ratios based on age, setting training requirements for staff, and enforcing standards for licensing and approving facilities, among other things. Caregivers must also take steps to prevent accidents and injuries that could reasonably be expected to occur in a childcare setting.
Injuries can result when the facility itself is unsafe, when it violates the law, or when caregivers act negligently. This can result in a wide variety of accidents, such as ingesting a battery that was left on the floor, falling from a changing table while unsupervised, or suffocating during naptime due to unsafe sleep conditions.
