Are Daycares Liable in Sexual Abuse Lawsuits?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of AbuseGuardian.com is an experienced sex abuse victim lawyer who represents victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Brian has offered to share some information on filing a lawsuit for sexual abuse by a daycare employee:
In the childcare field, it’s extremely important to make sure all employees are trustworthy. Daycares must prioritize the safety of the children under their watch. But sadly, childcare is often targeted by sexual predators who exploit their positions of trust in order to commit horrible crimes against children.
When a child reports being sexually abused by a daycare employee, that child’s parents are understandably angry and disgusted. This is a nightmare that no family should have to experience. Many of these families may wonder if the abuse could have been prevented.
Some cases of daycare sexual abuse only happen due to negligence by the daycare – such as failing to investigate suspicious behavior by an employee. In cases of negligence, the victims and their families may have grounds for a daycare sex abuse lawsuit.
