Daycare negligence can happen in any type of environment, from large centers, to private homes, and even with nannies in your own home. Injuries can occur at the primary place where the daycare is located, or in the provider's vehicle, or out in public during times a child is left in another's care.
For a parent, there's no feeling quite like seeing your child suffer, and this experience is even more difficult to swallow when a child is hurt because someone you trusted to care for them failed to do his or her job.
