Child Suffers Internal Injuries, Broken Clavicle at Popular Dallas Facility
DALLAS, Feb. 27 LAWFUEL – Litigation News — Attorneys from Dallas’ Rasansky Law Firm are announcing a lawsuit filed today against a popular downtown Dallas day care center where an 18-month-old child recently suffered a broken clavicle and internal injuries in an abuse case that remains unsolved.
Attorneys Jeff Rasansky and Clint Gilbert of the Rasansky Law Firm
represent Jeremy Roden and his wife Tenille Docampo in the claim filed
against Children’s World Stars and Tykes day care center; the center’s
director, Barbara Giddings; and the center’s parent corporation, Portland, Ore.-based Knowledge Learning Corp.
According to the complaint filed today in state district court,
18-month- old Delaney Roden-Docampo spent the day at Stars and Tykes on
Nov. 27, 2006, before her parents picked her up. After noticing a
hand-shaped bruise on Delaney’s arm, Mr. Roden and Ms. Docampo immediately
went back into the day care center for answers. However, staff members
claimed they had no idea how Delaney was hurt.
The parents took their daughter to a local hospital that day and
alerted authorities. Hospital doctors diagnosed Delaney with a broken
clavicle and internal injuries based on elevated enzyme levels.
In January, an investigation by the Texas Department of Family
Protective Services concluded that Delaney was “abused while in care at
Children’s World Stars and Tykes.” Mr. Roden and Ms. Docampo were cleared
of any wrongdoing, and the Dallas Police Department has yet to make any
“This is a parent’s worst nightmare,” says Mr. Rasansky, lead counsel
for the family. “Jeremy and Tenille trusted this company and its employees with the care of their child. There’s no way these hard working people or
their beautiful daughter deserved this.”
Stars and Tykes is located in the Dallas Federal Building at 207 South Houston Street in downtown Dallas. Many city employees and other area workers rely on Stars and Tykes to care for their children. Mr. Rasansky says his clients hope today’s lawsuit will help other parents make informed decisions about their children’s day care.
“Delaney’s mom and dad are rightfully concerned that other parents may not know what is happening at this day care center,” Mr. Rasansky says.
“Right now, their biggest concern is trying to make sure that no other
children are hurt.”
