WATE features The Button Law Firm lawsuit against North Texas daycare negligenceKNOXVILLE, Tennessee—A recent feature by Knoxville news station WATE draws attention to a troubling case of daycare negligence. The Button Law Firm is at the forefront of legal action on behalf of the affected family. The article sheds light on the distressing incident and subsequent efforts to hold the daycare accountable.

What Happened at LMNOP Children’s Academy?

Highlighted by WATE, the case revolves around an alarming incident at a daycare center, where a child was picked up from daycare with an unexplained black eye and punctured lip. LMNOP Children's Academy initially told the child’s mother, April Marin, that her son was injured while eating a snack, but the center's surveillance footage revealed a different story.

While the video footage clearly revealed a caregiver dropping the child onto a nap cot and then yanking the cot, causing the toddler to fall back, and hit his head, the article states that LMNOP Children's Academy did not contact Marin when the incident occurred.   

The daycare also waited several hours to file a state-mandated incident report, which should have been completed shortly after the incident.

Continued Cover-Ups and False Corroboration at the Dallas-Area Daycare

The cover-up continued when LMNOP Children’s Academy had another caregiver, who was nowhere in the vicinity of the boy, falsely corroborate the caregiver's story about how Marin's son was injured.

"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."

The Button Law Firm Is Taking Action to Hold the North Texas Daycare Accountable

Attorney Russell Button, representing the family, underscores the urgent need for daycare facilities to ensure the safety of the children in their care. He emphasizes the firm's dedication to seeking justice and accountability for families affected by daycare negligence, as reported by WATE.

"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."

The lawsuit, filed by The Button Law Firm, seeks to hold the daycare center accountable for its negligence and to secure recovery for the harm inflicted upon the child and their family. The legal proceedings aim to shine a spotlight on systemic failures within the childcare industry and to enact meaningful change.
