Dallas Morning News Features BLF Clients’ Story
The article reports on the events that led to this lawsuit being brought. The toddler’s mother, Ms. Radwan, noticed her son frequently came home with from daycare with unexplained injuries. Taking matters into her own hands, our client began regularly monitoring the daycare’s live-feed cameras. She was shocked to discover a caregiver pushing her son’s head into a pillow, yanking him by the arm to move him to a table, isolating him from the rest of the class, and withholding food and water from him as a form of punishment.
Upon discovering the mistreatment at the daycare, Ms. Radwan notified the daycare’s management, and they admitted to the inappropriate discipline methods. The daycare, however, did not previously notify Ms. Radwan of any of the abuse her son was experiencing.
Daycares are required to report violations of the minimum standards to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, Child Care Licensing Division (THHS). Incidents that place a child at risk, incidents of abuse, neglect, and injuries are required to be reported to DFPS and THHS. In this case, Little Dumplings Daycare failed to report the incident to proper state authorities.
In the article, Attorney Russell Button of The Button Law Firm, a Dallas-based daycare injury law firm experienced in handling cases against abusive and neglectful daycares, is quoted saying “We encourage parents like Ms. Radwan to report any incidents to the state so that they can be properly investigated, held accountable, and, hopefully, protect other children from being harmed.”
