Daycare Stairway Fall Injury

Child Daycare Stair Accident Lawyers in BrocktonChild Care Stairway Laws

Most parents would do anything for their children. Their child’s safety is the most important thing to them and they will take every possible measure to keep their children out of harms way. However, parents can not spend every moment of everyday with their children. Often times parents have to entrust the safety of their children to a caregiver.

Child Care facilities are required by law to take the following steps to prevent child stairway fall injuries. If a daycare fails to follow these rules and your child gets hurt then you can bring a claim for damages against the negligent daycare.

Stairways in child care facilities must be equipped with handrails. The following are some other rules and that daycares must follow:

  1. For programs serving children younger than three years old, barriers must be placed at the top and bottom of stairwells opening into areas used by children, unless prohibited by building or fire department regulations. Barriers must be permanently installed at the top of stairways. Pressure gates may not be used at the top of stairs.
  1. Open stairways used by children younger than school age must have railings or banisters installed along the open or unprotected side(s).

Day caregivers who fail to comply with regulations can put your child, and other children at risk of harm.  If your child suffered an injury due to caregiver negligence or failure to comply with safety regulations you may have a claim.
