No parent ever wants to get that call from the daycare explaining that their child was injured. As parents, we do our best to protect our children, but what happens if others aren't as careful?

Board-Certified Child Injury Attorney Mark Anderson has over 20 years experience handling Texas child injury and daycare negligence cases, including child injury cases involving dog bites, playground accidents, swimming pool injuries, trampoline mishaps and more. No matter the type, if a child was hurt due to the negligence of a school, aftercare program, daycare center, bus driver or another party, that child and their family should not have to suffer the consequences.

By law, a hurt child can't fight their own injury claim; their parents must do it for them. However, child injury law isn't exactly like it is for adults. Most parents choose to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to help ensure they win their child maximum compensation to cover their injuries, pain and suffering.

We Can Help You If:

  • Your child was hurt at a daycare and you believe the daycare caused their injury
  • Your child was injured while at school or during after school sports due to teacher negligence
  • You don't have health insurance and can't afford to get your child treatment
  • You have attempted to handle your child's case on your own but feel unsure about what to do next
  • You have encountered resistance from the school or daycare center where your child was hurt
  • You have already filed a claim but are having trouble with the insurance adjuster
  • You r​eceived an unfair settlement offer from the insurance company
  • You want a professional to ensure you win everything you deserve to cover the cost of your accident

If your child was hurt at daycare, you will benefit from having a personal injury attorney handling your case. The reason is simple. After an injury, you're going to have to convince the daycare's insurance company to pay you the money your child deserves for their medical bills, emotional trauma and your family's pain and suffering. However, insurance adjusters are trained to pay you as little money as possible. It's how insurance companies make money.

Having a lawyer on your side evens the playing field. Here at the Anderson Injury Lawyers, we have over 25 years of experience winning money for child daycare injury victims in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. We know exactly how to set up your case, and we handle everything for you.

There is zero risk because there are no up-front costs, and if you don’t recover compensation, you won’t owe us anything.

What Our Child Injury Attorneys Can Do For You

  • We'll Explain Your Child's Rights and Your Rights as Their Parents

    We know that Texas child injury law can be tedious. We wish the justice system was more straightforward, but there are reasons it is the way that it is. If your child was hurt in an accident and other party is at-fault, you have a right to pursue a claim for compensation to cover things like medical bills and emotional trauma. In order to do this, however, you'll need to establish negligence. This means you have to prove that the other party, be it a bus driver, daycare provider or the likes, directly caused injury to your child.

  • We'll Help Establish Negligence

    Child injury law can be very tricky business. It's for this reason that lots of parents choose to hire an attorney to handle their child's case. Here at the Anderson Injury Lawyers, we have over 40 years of combined experience winning Texas child injury cases. We know exactly what to look for, who to call and how to construct your case in the right way in order to convince an insurance company or jury to pay you and your child the money you deserve.

    An example of negligence would be if the school hired a bus driver with a poor driving record, and then that bus driver went on to wreck the bus. The school knew the driver was unfit for the position but hired them anyway. Another example would be if a daycare provider failed to pay close attention to their group and a child went missing, perhaps wandering away and getting hurt in the process. These are things people knowingly do, and those actions put your children at risk.

  • We'll Get Your Child the Compensation They Deserve

    If your child was hurt in an accident, they shouldn't have to pay the price. Under Texas law, children are entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering. The Anderson Injury Lawyers can help them get it.

Common Causes of Daycare Injury

Unequal Child to Staff Ratio

Having an uneven distributed teacher-to-student ratio can cause series of events that lead to an injury. The National Association for the Education of Young Children recommends that for a group of 20 children in the kindergarten age-range, there should be a teacher for every ten children. Anything over this ratio can result in negative consequences for the teacher and the children at the daycare center.

Unsupervised Areas and Carelessness

Children should be visible at all times. If a child is hurt because they ventured into an area out of the adult's sight, this could be a case of negligence.

Inexperienced Teachers

Inexperienced teachers sometimes allow children to play in areas or do things that would otherwise be off-limits. Centers short on staff who need to meet their daycare ratios might be quick to hire an inexperienced worker or fail to train new hires properly.

Featured Daycare Negligence Case

Children get hurt - all parents know that. They play too rough or go too far and a knee gets scratched or an elbow bruised. Most of the time, though, accidents are just accidents. But what happens when your child's injury was caused by someone's negligence?

Daycare Negligence

When the Fuller family put their toddler Tony into daycare, they trusted the adults to take care of him. Unfortunately, the daycare failed that duty not once but twice.

In the first incident, the daycare attendant slammed a door on Tony's finger, partially severing it. Tony was rushed to the hospital to have surgery performed. In the second incident, Tony fell at the daycare and suffered a fractured clavicle.

The Fuller family came to us wondering what could be done. Sure, accidents happen, but this was extreme. We couldn't agree more. When you put your child in the hands of a daycare, you're trusting those employees to do everything in their power to keep your child safe. No accident, no matter how small, is acceptable. Daycare centers have a duty to be diligent and employ well-trained personnel to avoid such catastrophes as the ones Tony suffered.

Case Summary

We quickly went to work building Tony's case. We worked around the idea that the daycare and their employees failed to property supervise Tony, using evidence from the multiple incidents to file a lawsuit. The case ultimately settled for more than double the amount the daycare had originally offered to pay the Fuller family, $120,000.
