Family Gets Justice After Child Seriously Hurt at a San Antonio Gym’s Kids’ Club
After their son was neglected and seriously hurt at a San Antonio gym’s childcare facility, a Central Texas family can now move forward thanks to a settlement secured against the gym by our lawyers at The Button Law Firm.
Our experienced child injury lawyers were able to hold the gym accountable for this little boy’s injuries. The settlement secured by our team will help cover the child’s medical expenses immediately following the incident, the parents’ lost wages while taking care of him, and any resources that the little boy may need to assist with his future medical care.
Neglect and Failures at a Texas Gym’s Kids Club
Like many parents, a San Antonio couple dropped off their son at a gym’s kids’ club while they worked out. The gym’s childcare facility promised to provide a “safe, fun environment,” but their son was not properly supervised at the facility. He climbed on top of a table, then fell off, landing on the floor on his right side. The little boy was seriously hurt and suffered permanent injuries from the fall.
The gym and its childcare facility failed to prioritize the safety of the little boy and other children in its care. In fact, the little boy’s injuries could have been prevented if he had been properly supervised. Sadly, the gym’s kids’ club had many shortcomings, including:
- Failing to maintain a safe premises
- Failing to properly train and supervise the gym’s kids’ club staff to ensure child safety
- Failing to fix dangerous conditions in the kids’ club area
- Failing to hire qualified workers
What to Look for in a Gym’s Childcare Facility
Many parents will be shocked to learn that gym kids’ clubs or childcare facilities in Texas are not licensed or regulated the way typical daycare centers are. Our firm has compiled a list of questions that you should ask if you plan to use the childcare center at a gym. Here are a few:
- What is the ratio of caregivers to children?
- What are the minimum and maximum ages of the children?
- How are the staff trained and screened?
- Are there age-appropriate toys and activities available?
It is also important to spend some time observing the caregivers at the gym in action. If you hear lots of crying children or workers scolding the children, that is not a good sign.
