Child at daycare suffering allergic reactionYour top priority as a parent is your child's safety and well-being, especially when they are at a daycare center or childcare facility. Unfortunately, children can get hurt, including suffering an allergic reaction, at even the most reputable daycare centers where you entrust your little one's care. In fact, 27.2% of children in the United States suffer from at least one allergic condition—from food and pet to seasonal allergies—according to a national health survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

If your child suffers an allergic reaction while at a daycare center in Texas, it's essential to be well-informed about your rights as a parent and to take the necessary steps to ensure your child's interests are protected.

Our Texas daycare injury lawyers at The Button Law Firm are dedicated to helping you and parents like you understand your rights and find the best path to move forward following your child’s allergic reaction. We recognize that moments like these can be distressing, and that's why we're here to share resources and provide guidance.

Can I Sue the Daycare Center for My Child’s Allergic Reaction at the Facility?

The short answer is yes. In the event that your child experiences an allergic reaction at a daycare center in Texas, your family has a right to file a civil lawsuit in an attempt to hold the daycare center accountable for your child’s injuries. A lawsuit would also help you seek compensation, known as damages, to cover:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Therapy and other resources to help your child cope with mental anguish
  • Your child’s current medical and long-term care expenses

When a child’s allergies are severe, exposure to an allergen at a daycare center in Texas can have a fatal outcome if an EpiPen or medical attention is not administered quickly. In the tragic event that your child experiences a fatal reaction at daycare, your family can file a wrongful death of a child lawsuit. This legal action can help your family get justice and closure and potentially secure compensation to cover funeral expenses, medical expenses incurred prior to the child’s passing away, emotional damages, and more.

The child injury lawyers at The Button Law Firm are ready to listen and advise your family on the best approach to hold the daycare center in Texas accountable and get justice for your child’s allergic reaction and any subsequent injuries that they sustained. Call us at 214-699-4409 or fill out a contact form for a free consultation.

Is There a Time Limit to File a Lawsuit After My Child Suffered an Allergic Reaction at a Daycare Center?

In Texas, you have two years from the date of your child’s allergic reaction at the daycare center to file a lawsuit. This time limit is known as the statute of limitations. However, it is important to file a claim as soon as possible. Filing quickly can strengthen your case. Gathering evidence from surveillance cameras and electronic communications like text messages and emails, as well as speaking to caregivers while memories of the incident are still “fresh” can greatly benefit your case.
