Mississippi Daycare Abuse Lawyer

Day Care Abuse Law Firm in Mississippi

Hardly a day passes without us hearing about child abuse cases happening at daycare centers all across Mississippi, including Jackson, Gulfport, Southaven and Hattiesburg.

These acts of child abuse are usually perpetrated by individuals who are responsible for the welfare of these children; people that parents have entrusted their loved ones with. If your child was a victim of daycare abuse, please contact a Mississippi daycare abuse lawyer today.

Daycare abuse is usually not overt. Because of this, it’s imperative that you as a parent keep your eyes open and ears to the ground. Looking out for things that may be behaviorally or physically ‘off’ can go a long way in discovering these type of issues. By staying vigilant, you can help ensure that your child stays safe and that all potential abuse cases are dealt with swiftly in order to keep other children safe from similar types of abuse.

Here are a few pointers that may signal ongoing daycare abuse:

  1. A once outgoing child becomes shy and withdrawn for no valid reason.
  2. Scratches, bruises and welts on a child’s body that never seem to heal.
  3. The onset of night terrors, bedwetting, nightmares and other sleep problems.
  4. Sudden onset of overly clingy or codependent behavior by a child.
  5. Reluctance to go to the daycare center when it’s time to do so.
  6. Aggressiveness (this manifests as a means of self-preservation).

It’s important to note that daycare abuse and neglect can take on many forms, and that injuries may not be initially apparent. Emotional and psychological abuse can take the form of taunts, neglect, bullying and more, and may only manifest itself much later in the child’s life. Because of this, you should make it your responsibility to have an open line of communication between you and your child, enabling you to ask them vital questions about how comfortable he or she is and if there’s anything that’s unsettling at the daycare center.

Filing a Lawsuit Against the Daycare

According to the law, it’s a criminal offense for daycare workers to not report cases of child abuse. Unfortunately, incidents of child abuse go unreported every day. If you suspect that your child is being abused at his or her day care, you may be able to sue for compensation related to the abuse. A good Mississippi day care abuse attorney can help you identify the various infractions that took place and what you can do to seek justice against those who harmed your child.

We can’t help undo what was done in the past, but we can help you and your family rebuild your child’s life and restore the rest of his or her childhood.

    My child is a 4th grade student at Three Rivers Elementary. He currently attends the after-school program alpha best. When I picked him up 2/12/2021, he told me that he wanted to tell me something that had happened to him and that he knows I will be upset. I asked what was wrong and he proceeded to tell me how (Mr. Moody) had put his hand in his pocket close to his private part and he kept feeling around and he was very uncomfortable and scared. He proceeded to tell me that he was playing with another student with a toy ring and had it in his pocket. The man was supposedly digging in his pocket to retrieve the ring, which seems an excuse to violate my child. My son is very upset over this situation. I returned to the school and requested to speak to this man. I told him who my child was and what my son said was done to him. this man whom I’m not even sure what his position is there, proceeded to tell me that he was in his hoody pocket looking for the ring. I told this man that he has no business putting his hands in any of my sons’ pockets much less what he had done. The director was of no help, she stated and seemed to only be worried about the fact that I went directly to this man instead of her, which was her only concern. My son has said that this man makes himself and the other boys uncomfortable. I would like a meeting to determine who this man is and why this incident happened. I have a meeting with the individual and the director of the program in the school cafeteria at 5:30 Thursday evening but I believe this should involve the school district as well. The man involved and the Alpha Best program should be held accountable.
