Should I sign a daycare liability clause?

A daycare liability clause is used by many daycares to waive your right to sue, should your child be harmed under their care. It is common for unsuspecting parents to sign a document like this without this knowledge. However, it is important to note that it is possible to still hold the daycare liable for any harm done to your child with the assistance of an understanding personal injury lawyer, even if you have signed a daycare liability clause.

What are the signs of daycare neglect or abuse?

Be alert for the following signs of daycare neglect or abuse if you believe your child is being harmed under a daycare’s watch:

  • Failing to put away cleaning products, office supplies, such as paper clips or staplers, and more that are choking hazards or toxic risks to children. Daycares are responsible for ensuring they put away all things that may present hazards to children.
  • Rusty playground equipment, broken glass, or any other safety hazards outdoors present serious risks.
  • Your child complains that they are hungry or thirsty when they return home. Your child unexpectedly loses weight. This may indicate that the daycare has malnourished your child.

How can I take legal action against a negligent daycare on behalf of my child?

The first step you should take to take proper legal action against a negligent daycare is to collect as much evidence as possible. This evidence should include photos or videos of the unsafe conditions at the daycare that caused your child harm.
