More than 14 million children in the country are in some form of day care each day. Children deserve the safest and healthiest environments where they can learn and grow. Parents need to take extra precautions by interviewing caregivers and examining facilities carefully before leaving their child at a day care provider.

Negligence in a day care setting is the breach of the day care provider’s duty to the children, which is to treat them with reasonable care. This duty includes keeping children safe and providing for their physical, emotional, and psychological needs, including proper food, rest, and appropriate activities within a secure environment.

Facts about Childhood Injuries

  • More than 12,000 people between the ages of 0 and 19 die from unintentional injuries each year.
  • More than 9 million people in the same age group are seen in emergency rooms for injuries each year.

No parent expects a phone call during the workday telling them that their child has suffered an injury after being involved in an accident. Unfortunately, these phone calls are made every day throughout Texas.

This figure was the highest number of pedestrian deaths recorded in more than 30 years. The report also projected that pedestrian deaths would account for 17% of all traffic related deaths in 2019.
