Russell Button and Ashley Washington of The Button Law FirmST. LOUIS, MO – The Texas-based legal team at The Button Law Firm has joined the lawsuit against Kidz Biz Preparatory School. The lawsuit was filed by Finney Injury Law on August 8th, after the family’s 18-month-old son was severely burned by an unsecured bottle warmer.

What Happened at This St. Louis Daycare?

The lawsuit claims that the workers at the daycare left the toddler unsupervised around a bottle warmer. The bottle warmer’s cord was hanging within reach of the young children; that’s when the toddler pulled it, causing scalding hot water to spill all over him, which resulted in serious burns to his arm.

How The Button Law Firm is Working to Help This Missouri Family

The Button Law Firm is helping this Missouri family by joining Finney Injury Law of St. Louis in the lawsuit against Kidz Biz Daycare. This is the third case attorneys Russell Button and Ashley Washington, who lead The Button Law Firm’s legal team, have been admitted to in Missouri over the past month. 

“Bottle warmers require state-mandated laws at daycare centers because they are known to be dangerous,” says child injury attorney Russell Button of The Button Law Firm. “This entire incident was preventable and we hope our efforts in this case set a precedent for other daycare facilities to comply with the state’s minimum standards.”

The Button Law Firm’s lawyers are experienced in helping families whose children have been injured from negligence at daycare. These injuries, like burns from bottle warmers, are completely preventable and should never happen.

By joining this lawsuit, these two experienced attorneys are working on making sure the toddler gets the treatment necessary to move forward, and the family is able to recover from this horrifically painful incident.

Damages that may be able to be recovered in serious burn incidents at daycare can include:

  • Medical expenses (for the past and future)
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and Suffering
  • And more.
