Family Seeks Answers After Toddler Is Suffocated Under Bean Bag Chair At Day Care

A Utah mother should be planning her son’s 2nd birthday party. Instead, she is planning his funeral after the toddler suffocated at a daycare center.

West Jordan Police said the little boy was underneath a bean bag chair when a daycare employee accidentally sat on it while reading a book to the rest of the children. When the child was discovered, he wasn’t breathing. CPR was performed and he was rushed to a local children’s hospital, where he died a few hours later. An investigation is underway; no charges have yet been filed.

The mother is seeking answers. How could the child go unnoticed? How could the employee not feel the toddler under the chair?

While the police investigation is underway, the child’s family may wish to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Though no amount of money can ever replace a lost loved one, especially a young child who will never attend school, play sports, get married, raise a family, and grow old, a lawsuit is a means for the family to receive compensate for their loss. It will also help ensure that an incident like this does not happen to another child. At this facility, it may mean stricter guidelines, more training of employees and better oversight into the daily operations.

According to news reports, the child center has been in violation twice in the last five years – one for lack of supervising children on their patio and another for having a hole in the fence where a child could easily escape.

An attorney for this family can seek compensation for the pain and suffering of the little boy prior to death; medical expenses prior to death; funeral and burial expenses; and loss of love, care, companionship, guidance, and nurturing that the victim would have provided. Once the lawsuit is filed, if they do not have the financial means to withstand a lengthy litigation, they may want to consider lawsuit funding.

Lawsuit funding is a non-recourse cash advance that may help this grief-stricken family focus on healing, rather than calculating expenses or worrying about how they will pay their bills. The money can be used for just about anything, but is commonly used to pay medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses and other pressing bills while their attorney seeks appropriate justice.

Applying for lawsuit funding is easy online or by phone, and takes less than five minutes. The only qualification is a strong case. We charge no upfront fees and no monthly payments; there are no credit checks or employment verifications. After case-evaluation, if approved for a lawsuit cash advance, funds can be available within 24 – 48 hours. Best of all, if the case is lost, we relinquish the cash advance; the plaintiff owes nothing.
