DENTON - The Denton Record Chronicle has reported on the story of a Texas family that is being represented by The Button Law Firm after their young daughter suffered injuries from chemical burns at daycare.
In the story, the Denton news publication details the incidents that led to this child suffering from the chemical burn. The article states, “Shortly after 1-year-old Lillian Epting was put down for a nap at the preschool and day care center last February, she began screaming in discomfort, according to a suit filed in Denton County District Court. That’s because the mat Lillian was allegedly forced to lay on for two hours as she cried out in pain had been improperly cleaned with a commercial-grade disinfectant, which burned her face and singed her hair, the suit claims.”
The article continues on to say, “Though Lillian showed immediate discomfort upon being placed on the nap mat, video footage shows that an hour and twenty minutes passed before a caregiver picked Lillian up and comforted her briefly before placing her back on the mat despite her face appearing swollen and red, according to the suit.”
