Below we outline some general information that may help guide you if your child was injured at a private day care in Florida. Please consult with a qualified attorney for advice tailored to your specific situation.

  1. Seek Medical Attention: Your child's well-being should be the top priority. Ensure that they receive appropriate medical care for their injuries.

  2. Document the Incident: Make detailed notes about what happened, including the date, time, location, and the circumstances surrounding the injury. Take photographs or video of any injuries and the location where the incident occurred.

  3. Notify the Day Care: Inform the day care management about the injury, and request an incident report. Keep a record of all your interactions with the day care staff.

  4. Preserve Evidence: Preserve any evidence related to the incident, such as medical records, photographs, text messages, or emails with the day care, and any other relevant documents.

  5. Consult an Attorney: Contact a personal injury attorney who specializes in child injury cases. They can help you understand your legal options and provide guidance on how to proceed.

  6. Consider a Lawsuit: Depending on the circumstances and the extent of your child's injuries, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against the day care provider. You'll need to prove that the day care was negligent or otherwise responsible for the injury.

  7. Investigate Negligence: Your attorney will investigate the incident to determine if the day care was negligent in any way. This could involve reviewing their policies and procedures, talking to witnesses, and gathering evidence.

  8. Pursue Compensation: If your attorney believes you have a case, they can help you seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages related to the injury.

  9. Negotiate or Litigate: Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to negotiate a settlement with the day care's insurance company or pursue a lawsuit in court.

  10. Comply with Statutes of Limitations: In Florida, there are statutes of limitations that set a deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit. It's essential to consult with an attorney promptly to ensure you meet all legal deadlines.

Remember that each case is unique, and the outcome will depend on the specific facts and circumstances. Consulting with an attorney who specializes in personal injury cases, particularly those involving children, is crucial to understanding and pursuing your legal options.
