WRBL News 3 Featured The Button Law Firm's StoryCOLUMBUS, Georgia - A recent feature by WRBL News 3 Columbus, Georgia, shed light on a harrowing incident at LMNOP Children's Academy in Carrollton, Texas. April Marin arrived at the daycare center to pick up her 2-year-old son, only to discover him with a black eye and a swollen, punctured lip. What followed was a disturbing revelation – surveillance footage contradicted the explanation provided by the daycare staff, leading to a lawsuit against the facility for negligence and violations of Texas childcare laws.

What Happened at This Texas Daycare?

The feature, spotlighting the lawsuit, highlighted the shocking events of November 2023. Initially informed by LMNOP Children's Academy that her son sustained his injuries during snack time, Marin was stunned to discover the truth through surveillance footage. The footage showed a frustrated caregiver mishandling the toddler, causing him to fall and sustain severe injuries to his face and lip.

April Marin expressed her disbelief, stating, "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. When I saw the surveillance footage, I was in shock. Nothing about the situation that the workers told me was true."

Further Details About the Incident and How The Button Law Firm is Holding This Negligent Daycare Accountable

The WRBL News 3 feature also delved into the concerning practices at LMNOP Children's Academy, including the failure to promptly report the incident to Marin and provide necessary medical attention to her son. Attorney Russell Button from The Button Law Firm, representing Marin and her son, emphasized the critical role of video evidence in uncovering the truth and holding negligent parties accountable.

"Video footage does not lie and, in this case, revealed the truth about our client's son's injury at LMNOP Children's Academy," Button remarked. "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."
