- Being hungry or thirsty at pickup time
- Lack of diaper changes
- Acting out or sudden changes in behavior or demeanor

Grounds for Daycare Abuse Compensation
Some of the ways a daycare may be legally liable for abuse are:
- Hiring an unqualified worker, including a worker with an abuse history
- Inadequate staffing, failing to train workers
- Allowing hazardous objects to be in an area where children can access them
- Not addressing specific dietary requirements or allergies of a child
- Failing to have appropriate resources to adequately care for children
- Lack of sanitation, toxic materials
- Poor monitoring systems for workers and their interactions with children
- A culture of abuse, failing to respond to reports of concern
- Failing to protect a child from another child who may pose a danger
- Inadequate response to previous issues and inadequacies
A daycare may be liable for failing to take reasonable steps to prevent abuse and other forms of negligence. Determining liability requires a review of the underlying causes of the harm and the actions of the facility leading up to the child’s injury.
Proving daycare injuries
To prove your case for compensation, we show how the daycare is responsible for harm because of negligence, recklessness, or intentional conduct.
We rely on medical documentation of injuries and expert medical professionals to explain how abuse caused injury to a child. We speak with witnesses, including soliciting testimony from those who may not be truthful or forthcoming. Photographs, tangible evidence, and forensic testing can provide additional evidence to prove how the child was harmed.
A claim for compensation may seek financial compensation and non-economic damages.
