I had to take my 3 yrs old daughter to ER from Daycare because she could not move her right arm and crying a lot when touched. Next day I questioned them about it, and they said she was fine till 5:25 p.m. and using both arms(picked up 5:47 p.m.) and they didn't notice anything after that. So I demanded them to review the footage, which they denied at first but later they reviewed it after mentioning police and FBI. And found out that my daughter could not move her arm all day (since about 10 a.m.). It took me couple seconds to notice but they couldn't notice all day. Its heartbreaking to think that she was in pain all day and only using her left arm all day, and she is right handed child.
DFPS is investigating and found out that the daycare lied to me and him about some of the stuff, and he knows about the footage and all the incident.
My daughter often mentions that her teacher hurt her by pulling her right arm and pushing her to the ground. She is 3 yrs old so can't express much.
The childcare is still open and most likely the teacher, who hurt my child or under whose watch my child was hurt, still working there with other children, and they may be danger too.
Oh most definitely meet with several personal injury attorneys! Make a police report. Contact CPS.

You definitely need to follow through with this to make sure that whatever is happening there does not continue. You most likely have a case against the daycare for your child's personal injuries, but the value of the case depends on the extent of her injuries, which you do not mention. You should seek a consultation with a personal injury attorney in your area.
There is possibly a recovery for medical bills for you and pain and suffering for your daughter, you need to consult with a personal injury attorney so they can evaluate your case for you.
I suggest you follow up with the day care licensing authorities for the state here and find out what is happening with the investigation. If your child continues to have problems, you may want to contact a personal injury attorney to further evaluate the situation. If you suspect child neglect at your day care, I suggest you find a new provider.
