Anari Ormond was told by the owner of J & A Nursery that Zuri Ormond was left unattended and had been bitten by a two year old.
But by the time that she got to the daycare she received another story. She was then told that someone fell with her daughter leaving her badly bruised.

An investigation into the accident that injured Zuri Ormond remains ongoing at this time.
Liability In Newark Daycare Accidents
According to Statisia, there are over 836,053 licensed daycare operators in the United States. These businesses care for tens of millions of children. Every parent hopes that there child is well-cared for at these centers, but this doesn’t always happen. According to the Sundial, “There are many signs parents should be aware of if they suspect their children are victims of child abuse or neglect. Pay close attention if you notice your children don’t have an appetite to eat, or that they have a tendency to overeat, those can be signs that some form [of] abuse is happening. If your child starts to have nightmares or begins bed-wetting after they have been potty trained; those also could be ways to determine if child abuse or neglect is present.”
One of the major problems with unlicensed daycares is that they tend to operate totally free from rules, regulations and government oversight. This can lead to the daycare failing to make the right staffing decisions and safety precautions necessary to keep children safe. Moreover, unlicensed facilities may lack liability insurance to cover the damages if a child is injured in their care. It’s important that evidence is properly preserved and collected after an accident at a daycare. If a daycare provider was negligent leading to a child being injured the family of the child may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
Damages in a civil claim can help cover medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. Many of the injuries associated with accidents at daycares may not show up right away. It’s important that parents continue to seek follow up care after an accident to help ensure that there is no long term damage. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the facts of your case free of cost and let you know what your legal options are. There are, however, statute of limitations associated with being able to pursue civil claims. It is therefore important to act quickly.
