Daycare Injuries in New Mexico
In New Mexico, injuries are the leading cause of death among people ages 1 to 44. Though all injuries can be impeding and frustrating, this is especially true when your child receives injuries from a daycare provider. Whether these injuries are considered intentional or unintentional childcare injuries continues to increase in New Mexico and has consistently remained one of the states with the highest rates of fatal child abuse and neglect. Though this number includes parents and guardians as well as daycare providers, daycare providers owe certain duties to the children that they provide care for.
These duties include but are not limited to: proper safety standards and playground equipment; paying attention to children; proper ratio between child and caregiver; and easy access to first aid tools. Also, daycare injuries can result from a lack of attention being paid to the children, as well as a lack of patience and training to be a daycare provider. When these duties are breached it results in injury to your child which results in damages because of medical expenses, and possible pain and suffering that your child endured. For these types of injuries your child can be compensated. Like any other injury, daycare injuries can be avoided; however, if un-avoided, daycare injuries can result in not only physical injury to your child, but also emotional and mental damage as well. Therefore, if your child has been injured while at daycare it is beyond beneficial to seek legal advice.
