Kansas City Child Care Injury Lawyers
Serving Families in Missouri & Kansas
Working parents need to find someone to care for their children while they are at work. They may hire an in-home babysitter or nanny, take the children to the home of a neighbor or friend, or use a commercial or church-related childcare service. Whatever type of care a parent selects, he or she assumes that a child will be safe and well cared for.
When a child is injured or dies while in the care of others, parents want justice. They want to prevent similar injuries to other children. They need compensation to help them care for their injured or sick child. At Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., our Kansas City child care injury lawyers help parents achieve goals such as these. We file lawsuits when child care providers were negligent or abusive and children were hurt or killed.

Causes of Day Care Injuries
Injuries to children in daycare can occur for many reasons. No matter the circumstances of the accident that affected your child, Dempsey & Kingsland can help.
We help children who were injured due to:
- Unsafe conditions in a home or facility, such as unguarded sockets, inadequate or broken stair rails, and attractive nuisances such as unsecured bookshelves or unlocked cabinets
- Lack of adequate supervision and monitoring
- Overcrowding in a facility or home (incorrect adult-to-child ratio)
- Improperly installed or incorrectly maintained playground equipment
- Emotional abuse
- Physical abuse
Building a Strong Case
A Kansas City daycare injury attorney at our firm can determine the best strategy for proceeding with these cases. Developing a strong approach involves evaluating the insurance coverage available and identifying licensing and reporting violations. We know that parents undertake these cases for reasons other than financial compensation; they want justice for their children and an acknowledgment from the defendants that their negligence hurt the child. Our team takes the time to listen to our clients’ concerns and incorporate their goals into the case.
