Child Care and Nursing Home Neglect


No one is more vulnerable than our children and the elderly. State and Federal laws exist that prescribe the standards that must be followed by both daycares and nursing home facilities. This includes providing proper oversight, maintain appropriate care and staffing, and removing known dangers. Failure to abide by these standards results in legal liability in the event of an accident or death.

Many times negligence goes unnoticed until it is too late. Lack of supervision is the single greatest cause of injury. When daycare and nursing home professionals violate the trust you have placed in them, you must take action.
