It was quite a tragic scene and situation when the 13 month old toddler was found in the van parked in Dorchester, Massachusetts. After this most unfortunate and tragic incident, investigators and State regulators shut the day care center down. The van was marked with a sign – Gloria’s Luna Family Day Care Center.

Children in day care centers are at risk for serious injury and death. In transporting children, it is important for day care centers and transportation companies to make sure that all children properly board the bus and all children properly depart the bus. A simple checklist and due diligence on the part of the day care center drivers and staff members can help avoid tragedies like the one that took place in Dorchester, Massachusetts. The book titled – The ABCs of Child Injury – Legal Rights of the Injured Child – What Every Parent Should Know – has chapters on Day Care Center Injuries, Damages / Compensation, and other matters.
