What if I Signed a Daycare Liability Waiver?
An accident occurred at the daycare and your child suffered an injury, but the next question in your mind is if the liability waiver you signed could prevent you and your family from receiving compensation for the accident.
But, daycare liability waivers almost never hold any weight in a Chicago daycare negligence lawsuit. Although many daycare facilities require parents to sign liability waivers, they do not legally exonerate daycare providers in the case of an accident or injury. The reason? There have been multiple cases of a judge ruling that a liability waiver should not exempt a daycare or its employees from being held responsible for the accident. In the eyes of the law, the daycare center or employee negligence caused the child to be injured or killed, and a piece of paper does not hold any weight in skirting that responsibility.
Do not let a liability waiver prevent you from filing a daycare accident lawsuit. If you have any questions, your Chicago daycare negligence lawyer can help.
