​Where child injuries occur in Dallas and Fort Worth

​Growing up requires learning through trial-and-error experiences, resulting in some scrapes and bruises as a kid. As caregivers, we cannot prevent every accident. However, understanding the potential for accidents is always beneficial and often helps reduce their risk. 

Some of the most common places where these injuries occur include:

  • Daycare
  • School
  • Cars
  • Playgrounds
  • Amusement parks
  • Gyms
  • Swimming pools
  • Bounce houses
  • Water parks
  • Homes

Pursuing compensation for daycare negligence

When parents or guardians take their children to daycare, they are often asked to sign a waiver, including a liability clause. You do not have to sign this document, and even if you do, you can still file a claim for the injuries your child sustained.

If your child was injured because of daycare negligence, some elements must be proven:

  • Your child was enrolled in daycare, where the owners had a duty of care to your child
  • The employer at the daycare or a member of their staff breached (violated) the duty of care
  • Your child’s injuries were directly caused by the breach of care 
  • Your child suffered substantial damages as a result of the incident

Below are some examples of daycare negligence for which you may file a claim:

  • Your child was injured on defective or rusty playground equipment
  • Your child had food allergies that were ignored
  • Your child was given unclean water or stale food
  • Children were not properly supervised 
  • There were sharp or hazardous materials within your child’s reach
  • Employees at your child’s daycare were not adequately screened

Financial compensation for injuries to children

A significant injury can potentially require daily nursing care for the rest of a child’s life. Even with health insurance, families can quickly reach their lifetime coverage limit. At Frenkel & Frenkel, our experienced lawyers and medical experts can help define the actual lifelong cost of an injury for an insurance company to help you and your child receive compensation. 

The compensation you could be awarded in such a claim would depend on several factors, including:

  • The amount of money you have paid thus far for your child’s medical care
  • The expected cost of future medical needs
  • The cost of your child’s rehabilitation
  • The impact your child’s injury will have on their learning abilities or ability to earn a living once reaching adulthood
  • How much time you had to miss work because of your child’s injury
