Legal Commentary

Automobile accidents are quite common and very unfortunate for those involved, however they seem to be even more tragic when they involve innocent children--especially an entire bus full.  In this scenario a potential civil case could benefit those families with children injured in the accident by either the fault of the bus driver, or the charter bus driver. Although officials are still investigating the specifics of the accident to determine who is at fault, the victims’ families could file a civil claim against the charter bus company or the school district. From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous families involved in motor vehicle accidents. The families of these children should consider consulting with an experienced attorney to file a personal injury claim against either the school district, or the company for which the charter bus driver is employed by—depending on which party is found responsible. A successful civil claim will ensure that the injured children will receive support for the unexpected medical expenses they incurred and for the pain and suffering from their injuries. It will enable the families of the victims to pay off these costly medical bills without being burdened by out-of-pocket expenses.

Two-Year-Old Jordan Smith Suffers Third Degree Burns at Lil Rascals Learning Center in Mesquite; Located at 2424 Baker Drive

On March 27, 2013, two-year-old Jordan Smith received third degree burns to his right hand when Johnnie Brown, a former employee of Lil Rascals Learning Center, washed his hands. The abusive incident began when Jordan had an accident in the bathroom, and ran into the classroom to Brown, seeking help to clean himself up. Surveillance footage shows Brown sending Jordan back into the bathroom alone; after scolding and hitting the little boy. Jordan Smith was left unattended in the restroom for another fifteen minutes, before he came back out; completely naked this time, when Brown proceeded to wash his hands. Also evident in the surveillance footage is the emphasis Brown places on Jordan’s right hand after washing them. After studying the burned hand, Brown is seen wrapping the boy in a towel and leaving the classroom; where the remaining two-year-olds were left unattended for over ten minutes before another care giver arrived. Reports also note that 911 was never called for the burn incident, and the child did not receive emergency medical care immediately following the accident. Below is a map that depicts the location of the daycare, followed by a video with further details of the injury the child sustained; courtesy of WFAA:

Legal Commentary

The abuse this young boy received at a state licensed and certified daycare is absolutely appalling. Because of the careless negligence Johnnie Brown portrayed in this classroom towards Jordan Smith, this young boy will now have to live with severe scarring, as well as negative psychological effects from this incident for the rest of his life. Considering the severe third degree burns Smith suffered to his hand, the child could potentially undergo skin grafts, and will likely be required to wear a protective pressure glove to reduce scarring and deformities of his hand as the burn heals. While felony charges have been filed against Johnnie Brown and the Lil Rascals Learning Center, it is important that Smith’s mother also file a civil claim against the former employee and the daycare center. Filing a civil claim for her son’s personal injury, pain, and suffering will help Smith’s mother receive the financial resources necessary for the expensive medical bills and therapy that accompany severe burns like Jordan’s, and will ensure that this family does not have to pay out-of-pocket for any medical treatment. If you or a loved one have experienced a severe injury as a result of someone else’s negligent conduct, the successful personal injury attorneys at the Fears | Nachawati Law Firm can provide you with the exceptional guidance and legal representation necessary to affectively pursue a claim against the responsible party.
