Nanny and Babysitter Negligence

Economic demands often require parents to be away from their children during the workday which may lead to the need for a babysitter or nanny. These childcare professionals are frequently well-paid for their efforts, and parents place an enormous amount of trust in them to watch out for the needs and interests of their child.

Accidents can always happen, but many mishaps are entirely preventable events made possible by the negligence of the nanny or babysitter. If your child has suffered an injury due to the negligence of their caregiver, you may be entitled to compensation for the medical expenses and other damages associated with the injury. Call the experienced Des Moines personal injury attorney at LaMarca Law Group, P.C. today at (515) 705-0233 to learn more about your legal options.

Neglect and Recklessness

In most cases, an accident is simply a regrettable misfortune that would have happened even if the parents were present. However, some childcare professionals do not fulfill the obligations of their employment and instead choose to willfully neglect their duties. Accidents can happen when a nanny or babysitter engages in behavior like the following:

  • Failing to administer medications or special diets properly
  • Inviting over guests without the express permission of the parents
  • Failing to provide ongoing supervision for the children
  • Physically or sexually abusing the child

In situations such as these, you are well within your rights to pursue compensation for the losses your child has suffered.
