Parents told child was injured during snack time, turned out to be a coverupShocking Incident Leads to Legal Action

DAYTON, Ohio – In a case that has drawn significant attention, The Button Law Firm has filed a lawsuit against LMNOP Children's Academy in Carrollton, Texas, following a disturbing incident involving a 2-year-old child.

The incident, featured prominently on 2 NEWS WDTN, highlights the severe neglect and misconduct at the daycare. April Marin arrived to pick up her son, only to find him with the beginnings of a black eye and a swollen, punctured lip. Initially, the daycare staff claimed the injuries occurred while the child ate a snack. However, surveillance footage revealed a far more troubling story.

Surveillance Footage Reveals Truth of Daycare Negligence

According to the article, the surveillance footage showed a frustrated caregiver dropping the young boy onto a nap cot and then yanking it, causing him to fall, hit his head, and bite through his bottom lip. This revelation contradicted the daycare's initial explanation and highlighted a blatant attempt to cover up the incident. The caregivers failed to notify Marin promptly and delayed filing the required state-mandated incident report, further exacerbating the situation.

History of Violations at LMNOP Children's Academy

2 NEWS WDTN's feature also brings to light the troubling history of violations at LMNOP Children's Academy. Over the past four years, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission has cited the daycare center 14 times for various infractions.

These citations include failing to notify parents immediately following a child's injury, not reporting situations that put a child's health or life at risk, using unapproved disciplinary tactics, and neglecting to complete background checks on caregivers. This pattern of negligence underscores a systemic failure to ensure the safety and well-being of the children in their care.

Button emphasized the potential risks posed by attempts to conceal a child's injury, highlighting the importance of timely notification to parents and ensuring the child receives necessary medical care.
