Kids go to preschool to learn and have fun with their peers. This is a great opportunity for your kids to make friends and learn how to play in a unique environment. Unfortunately, accidents happen sometimes.
Perhaps your child sustains an injury while they’re at preschool. You may have questions about how to proceed. Here is a closer look.
It is important to notify the staff as soon as possible that your child sustained an injury at school. There should be written documentation describing the injury and all the other important details to help clarify things. Perhaps the school has already prepared a report of what happened. Ask for a copy of the preschool’s report.
Your child’s safety is obviously your top priority. Take your child to the hospital immediately if they have a serious injury to avoid making things worse. A thorough check-up is recommended even if they sustained a minor injury, so you can have a peace of mind.
Ask for an attorney if you are convinced that negligence may have caused your child to get injured. An attorney will help guide you through the process to ensure that your child’s rights are protected.
Learning about your child getting injured in preschool can be traumatic, but these steps should help you move forward.
