Accidents * in Creche

Cosgrove Gaynard Solicitors

Parents are obviously extremely worried about their childrens crèche facilities in light of last nights primetime programme.

Parents are obviously extremely worried about their childrens crèche facilities in light of last nights primetime programme.

HSE inspection reports show a large number of childcare facilities were actually in breach of the Child care regulations in 2012. It was these reports that Primetime obtained.

Worried parents should note that these HSE inspection reports can be obtained under the Freedom of Information Act and we would recommend all parents to do so if they are concerned about their childs welfare.

However it may be the case that some Creches have not been inspected and todays reports show that some have not been inspected in up to four years despite complaints from parents and despite the fact that regulations provide that all crèches should be inspected at least once a year.  Clearly this shortcoming leaves the HSE open to compensation claims in circumstances where a child suffers personal injuries in a Creche.

Cosgrove Gaynard Solicitors have acted in a number of parents in personal injuries* claims for their children for accidents in creche. Often compensation can be sought when a Creche breaches its duty of care to its children. They must ensure the child is safe, allergies if any are noted, and that the facility and contents are safe for use by the children.  If an accident or injury occurs when the accident or injury could have been avoided with proper supervision, training or other adequate safety measure, the Creche may be found liable for a personal injuries claim.

The footage last night was obviously disturbing and parents with children in these crèches or parents with children who have suffered an injury should contact us at 01 6139191 or info@cgsolicitors.ie to discuss their options.
