MEEHAN LAWFIRM WINS SETTLEMENT FOR PARENTS OF INFANT KILLED BY BABYSITTER

The Meehan Law Firm successfully obtained by a substantial settlement for a Southeast Missouri couple who lost their infant child due to the negligence of a home day care provider. Terms of the settlement were confidential.

 

The claim underscored the ricks parents encounter when they use unlicensed home day care providers. In this case, the couple’s eight-month-old infant was left unattended for over three hours in a portable playpen while the day care provider attended to care for twelve other children in the home. The child suffocated and was found dead in the playpen. The day care provider was untrained and had no state license.

 

Local authorities declined to charge the provider criminally, but The Meehan Law Firm successfully sued and obtained a six-figured settlement for the parents’ loss.
