KXAN Austin Features Button Law Firm Daycare Negligence CaseAUSTIN, Texas – In a recent article by KXAN, a troubling case of negligence is exposed at a Carrollton daycare center. The feature brings to light the harrowing ordeal of a 2-year-old child and the legal battle that ensued, with The Button Law Firm leading the charge for justice.

The KXAN feature uncovers a disturbing incident that occurred at LMNOP Children's Academy. A video captured by concerned parents reveals discrepancies between the daycare's account of events and the actual circumstances surrounding the child's injury.

What Happened at This North Texas Daycare Center

According to the article, the daycare center falsely claimed that the child sustained injuries from a fall during playtime. However, the video evidence tells a different story, exposing the shocking truth that the injury occurred due to caregiver abuse.

A frustrated worker dropped a young boy on a nap cot and then yanked the cot, causing him to fall, hit his head, and bite through his bottom lip.

"Nothing prepares you for watching your young child get seriously hurt by the caregivers who are supposed to keep him safe. I selected LMNOP Children's Academy because of its safety promises," Marin says. "When I saw the surveillance footage, I was in shock. Nothing about the situation that the workers told me was true."

Previous Citations Uncovered at LMNOP Children’s Academy

As KXAN mentioned, LMNOP Children's Academy's disregard for safety standards started prior to this toddler's injury. Records from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission unveiled a disturbing pattern of neglect spanning four years. The daycare center accumulated 14 citations for various infractions mirroring those highlighted in this case.

These infractions ranged from failure to promptly notify parents after a child's injury, to neglecting to report situations endangering a child's well-being, and even included instances of caregivers employing unauthorized disciplinary methods. Furthermore, the center neglected to conduct thorough background checks on its staff, raising serious concerns about the safety and well-being of the children entrusted to its care.

The Button Law Firm, renowned for its commitment to advocating for victims of negligence and daycare abuse, swiftly took action upon discovering the disturbing footage. Spearheading the legal proceedings on behalf of the child's family, BLF aims to hold the daycare center accountable for its negligence and improper practices.

"Video footage does not lie and, in this case, revealed the truth about our client's son's injury at LMNOP Children's Academy," says daycare injury attorney Russell Button of The Button Law Firm, who represents Marin and her son. "Attempting to cover up a child's injury can put a child's health at risk if parents are not notified and the child does not receive necessary medical care."
