Was Your Child Harmed By The Negligence Of A Teacher Or Daycare Provider?

As parents, we know that minor bumps, bruises and scrapes are a normal part of childhood. However, serious injuries that occur because of the carelessness of others are simply unacceptable.

At the Indiana law firm of Matthew D. Barrett, P.C., we understand that you expect and deserve your children to be treated with a reasonable amount of care. If the negligence or wrongdoing of school officials or daycare staff resulted in significant harm to your son or daughter, we can help. Our Indianapolis school injury attorney will thoroughly investigate the situation and pursue the full amount of compensation that you may deserve.

Examples Of School Or Daycare Negligence

Both Indiana schools and daycare centers have responsibility to maintain their premises and supervise their staff and the children in a way that promotes a safe and healthy environment. When such facilities fail in this duty, it is often the innocent who get hurt. Here are a few examples of such negligence:

  • Broken or inadequately maintained playground equipment
  • Failure to adequately screen employees
  • Physical battery or sexual abuse of children
  • Shaken baby syndrome resulting from frustrated caretakers
  • Lack of supervision caused by improper staffing ratios
  • Failure to monitor bullying on the premises
  • Allowing children to wander off and become injured
  • Failure to respond to health or safety emergencies

Indiana’s Rules And Requirements

The state of Indiana has special rules and requirements that apply to lawsuits brought against government agencies, which includes many schools and parks. Our lawyer understands the legal complexities of bringing a personal injury claim against such educational and public centers and can advise you of your rights and options.

Mr. Barrett also maintains an in-depth understanding of the legal requirements that both licensed and unlicensed daycare centers must meet. The state mandates specific ratios of staff members to children in these facilities to ensure adequate supervision. In addition, Indiana has certain age and education standards for daycare teachers and staff.
