Severed Finger at Daycare Center Sparks Negligence Suit


What duty of care does a daycare center owe to the children it supervises?

Kansas City daycare negligence attorneys often help upset and grieving parents whose children have been injured or killed while in the custody of daycare centers.

Sometimes, guilt-ridden parents wish they had investigated the facility for any records of violations prior to having placed their child in the care of those who may have a history of shoddy caregiving. Of course, a clean record doesn’t guarantee a superior standard of care in the future, especially since staff changes without proper background screening may also result in negligent or reckless injuries. Parents often go public after their own tragedy in an effort to spare others the same pain.

Suit Threatened After Tot Scalded at Restaurant

Q: Is a hot water burn accident grounds to sue a restaurant?

Every single day, countless cups of hot scalding water or coffee are served by waitstaff to patrons in restaurants across the country.

Personal injury lawsuits arise when accidents occur and people get burned. But to prevail in your lawsuit, you must establish liability--which essentially means you have to prove that your injury was someone else’s fault. State laws differ, and sometimes more than one party may be held responsible for a percentage of the damages.

One family says things were not so good in their neighborhood the night they visited a local Applebee’s restaurant with their toddler. After reportedly asking for and receiving a cup of “scalding hot water to sterilize utensils”, the couple’s toddler allegedly grabbed the cup, spilled the water on himself, and received “severe burns”.
