Nonetheless, parents and legal guardians are sometimes compelled to place their trust in daycare center staff in order to work and earn a living.

Sadly, infants are fragile when it comes to human error and negligence on behalf of daycare center staff and any infrastructure defects which may lead to injury.
DAYCARE CENTER ACCIDENTS
The Perazzo Law Firm knows that children are very vulnerable to accidents given that they, depending on the age, are unable to communicate effectively; unaware of the dangers of given situations or objects, are just learning how to walk; and simply don’t know right from wrong. That is why they and their parents depend so highly on the daycare center staff to take proper care of their most beloved possession; their child. The slightest act of negligence can cause a small infant to suffer serious bodily harm or even wrongful death. The Perazzo Law Firm all too well the dangers that lurk both within and outside of daycare centers. According to statistics, parents and guardians are responsible for almost 80% of wrongful death cases involving children under the age of four. Sadly, that includes daycare center workers and staff. That is why, we provide the best insight when it comes to handling daycare injury and negligence claims. Our experience in personal injury accident cases and our dedication to the victim’s families, enable us to provide legal services that strive for the highest levels of satisfaction, and we fight to make sure those at fault pay for the negligent acts which cause injury to children at daycare and nursery schools.
SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS IN DAYCARE CENTERS
Small children are bound to fall when they run or begin to walk. However, daycare centers are obliged to make it safe for children that are learning to walk, or for those that have already learnt to walk. Thus, furnishings must be safe and contain no sharp edges or be padded. Also, walking surfaces must be kept dry and free of slippery substances which may cause a child to fall and suffer injuries like breaks, fractures, abrasions, or head injuries that may result in serious or permanent impairment.
DEFECTIVE TOYS AND OBJECTS IN DAYCARE CENTERS
Though toys are object made to entertain, not all toys are for every child. Toys that contain small parts, for example toys that can be taken apart and put back together, may lead to a choking incident. Small pieces may look like a morsel of food to a small child that is hungry or may look tempting to a child that is teething. Choking on small objects can be very serious if a child has been left unattended for even a split second. A small child may not necessarily place an object in his/her mouth, but in their ear, eye, or nose. A small child may see a button, a small battery, a safety pin, a screw, or any object small enough to fit in their nostrils, ears, or eyes. A child may place something up his/her nose and nobody would find out until infection sets in and the child shows signs of pain. A child may easily suffer injury by placing an object such as a pen or pencil in their eye. Old toys may sometimes break easily, and any small particles can present danger to a small infant if swallowed or placed within any part of the body. That is why, responsible supervision is fundamental in a daycare center or nursery. A negligence lawsuit may be filed if lack of supervision led to the injury of an infant or toddler. This holds true for any facility responsible for the well-being of children that are placed in their care.
HAZARDOUS INFRASTRUCTURE OR FACILITIES IN DAYCARE CENTERS
A daycare center, just like any public or private establishment that provides a service, must be safe and hazard-free for its visitors, customers, or guests. Failure to provide safe conditions that result in personal injury to an individual, can be considered a breech of duty that falls under premises liability
laws. In the case of daycare centers, all objects and furnishings such as tables, chairs, rugs, carpets, swings, cribs, lighting fixtures, power outlets, etc., must be in accordance with the safety regulations governing daycare centers; in order to prevent accidents by eliminating foreseeable dangers. Infants and toddlers must be supervised at all times by the childcare staff, and any objects or infrastructure that causes bodily harm may hold the daycare center legally liable for compensation. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm strives to provide the best possible representation to its personal injury clients in the event a daycare negligence lawsuit is sought by the injured child's family or legal guardian.
DAYCARE CENTER TRANSPORTATION NEGLIGENCE
Sadly, infants and toddlers fall victim to negligence within the vehicles used by daycare centers to transport them from their facilities to their homes. It is a sad but common occurrence for children to be left alone and forgotten within vehicles during high temperatures. As infants lack communication skills other than crying, being left behind inside a vehicle can result in wrongful death. Being left behind as a result of negligence by the driver or daycare center supervisor is not the only risk that a child and his/her parents take upon deciding to leave their son or daughter in the hands of a childcare facility. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm knows that traffic accidents involving daycare facility vehicles can occur at any time, especially with the ever growing amount of cars, buses, delivery trucks, and ride-share services vehicles on Miami city streets and highways. Vehicles that transport small children, must be equipped with seats suitable for the children's age-range and size. There exist strict guidelines aimed at guaranteeing children are safe when seated aboard a daycare center transportation vehicle.
WHAT TO DO IN THE EVENT OF A CHILDCARE FACILITY ACCIDENT
Just like any and all personal injury lawsuits for compensation, the Perazzo Law Firm knows that proof of burden is vital for the success of a personal injury claim. Being able to prove negligence on behalf of daycare center depends on the ability of an experienced personal injury lawyer and the child's parents or legal guardians. To determine negligence in a daycare center, medical records are fundamental. Thus, if a child is injured in a daycare center, the Perazzo Law Firm urges the child's parents or guardian to gather all medical records and any possible eyewitness testimony. Many times, daycare centers have cameras installed within their facilities to safeguard themselves of negligence on behalf of their staff. Our dedicated staff of attorneys implement all possible resources to gather the facts concerning how the accident occurred and who is legally liable for the child's injuries. Thus, if your child was injured while under the supervision of a daycare center, the Perazzo Law Firm urges you to seek immediate medical attention and save all medical records and/or police reports.
