Detroit Daycare Sexual Assault Lawyers
When we leave our children in the hands of a day care center, we expect them to receive adequate supervision from the staff. Parents expect daycare employees to treat their children with dignity and keep them safe from any kind of harm. Unfortunately, sometimes sexual predators find their way into what should be a safe haven for these children. It is a daycare center’s responsibility to protect your child from abuse, so when your child is sexually abused while in the care of such a facility, legal action may be appropriate.
If your child has been sexually abused at their daycare center, the Detroit sexual assault lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C., can help you seek financial compensation for the intense physical and emotional trauma that your son or daughter has endured. Contact us at (866) 644-6587 to learn more about how our experienced attorneys can help your family through this difficult time.
Preventing and Detecting Sexual Abuse
Childcare centers should have certain transparencies and privacies in place. Parents should be allowed to come by without calling in beforehand, and the centers should have no areas that are off limits to parents. This makes it harder for any potential predators to have alone time with children. Most sexual abuse in day care centers takes place in the restroom, so try to know who takes your children to the restroom and if there are areas in the restroom where they might be isolated from everyone else.
Unfortunately, even careful review of a school may not ensure that abuse does not occur. Accordingly, it is important to pay close attention to your child’s behavior as the following may be an indication that he or she has been sexually abused:
- Sudden interest in sex
- Regressive behavior such as bedwetting
- Unexplained bruising
- Torn clothing
If your child is showing these or similar signs, he or she may have been abused. It may therefore be appropriate to take action on your child’s behalf.
