Daycare license suspended following child injury

Many parents in New York must make difficult choices regarding the care of their children. Because they must work, many are forced to leave their children in the care of others. Parents in another state are likely questioning the care their children receive after a daycare was closed with an emergency suspension due to a child injury.

The closure was caused by injuries suffered by an infant. The daycare, Smart Sparks, was operates out of the owner's home and is licensed for up to 12 children. On a day in March, the owner contacted emergency responders, claiming that an infant at the facility was injured. The infant was transported to a nearby hospital before being airlifted to a children's hospital.

The 5-month-old has since been diagnosed with a brain injury. Since the incident, the Department of Health and Environment has issued an emergency suspension of the daycare operations, as allowed by Kansas law. Multiple agencies are working together to complete an investigation into the incident, which is being treated as abuse.

As many victims of brain injuries are aware, they can be difficult to treat and result in a variety of different symptoms that affect a person's day-to-day activities. Often, victims are never able to fully recover from a child injury such as this and require expensive, long-term interventions. As a result, many people in New York choose to seek financial relief in a civil court if an injury was caused by another person's negligence. A successfully presented case can help ensure that victims receive the care they need for the rest of their life.
