School/Daycare Injury We Demand Justice™

School & Daycare Injury Attorney in Pensacola

Fighting for the Rights of Your Child

When you drop your child off at school or daycare, you rightfully expect that your child will be looked after by the professionals who are paid to do so. School employees and daycare workers have a responsibility to provide a reasonably safe environment for the children in their care and when they fail to do so, you may be entitled to take legal action. If your child suffered injuries while at school or daycare, you may feel overwhelmed or unsure of your options. The Pensacola school and daycare injury attorney at The Watson Firm, PLLC can help you understand your rights. We work to obtain justice for our clients and their family members, offering compassionate, personalized counsel and uncompromising representation every step of the way.

Types of School/Daycare Injuries

No child should suffer injuries while under the supervision of educational or daycare employees. However, accidents and other incidents can occur when adult supervisors are careless, inattentive, or otherwise negligent. In certain cases, injuries can be caused by defective toys, playground equipment, and other circumstances.

Some of the most common injuries that occur in schools and daycares include:

  • Playground injuries, including falls, cuts, scrapes, broken bones, and head injuries
  • Injuries resulting from falling objects, including books and toys falling from shelves/bookcases
  • Accidents resulting from broken or defective toys, supplies, and other equipment
  • Burns and scalding, resulting from improper use of bottle warmers
  • Strangulation, resulting from lack of supervision or defective playground equipment

In nearly every instance, school and daycare injuries can be attributed to negligence, as employees, supervisors, and other caregivers are required by law to provide a safe, danger-free environment for the children in their care. If your child was injured while at school or daycare, our firm is here to help.

Preventing School & Daycare Injuries

There are a few simple steps parents and guardians can take to help prevent school and daycare injuries. When selecting a daycare, always tour the facility in person. Take a look at the playground equipment, toys, and general condition of the daycare. Does the place seem clean and free of potential hazards? Is there adequate staff on hand? Do the employees seem friendly and capable? Check for things like tall bookcases, toys laying around, playground equipment conditions, and general cleanliness. Taking note of these and other things can help you select a safe daycare or school for your child and may reduce the risk of an accident.

What to Do If an Accident Occurs

If your child is involved in an accident at his or her daycare or school, always seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even if your child seems fine, it’s important to have a medical professional perform an examination, as certain injuries may not show up right away. After attending to the medical needs of your child, you may want to file a police report, depending on the details of the accident. It’s also important to contact a Pensacola school and daycare accident attorney who has experience handling these specific types of personal injury cases. The Watson Firm, PLLC can help you determine the best course of action for your situation and goals and will work to secure an optimal outcome for your case.
