Wrongful Death: An empty car seat

Daycare Hit With Wrongful Death Lawsuit Following Death of Infant

Beasley Allen’s personal injury attorney Kendal Dunson filed a wrongful death lawsuit in the Circuit Court of Montgomery County, Alabama, on behalf of the parents of a 7-month-old child who needlessly died while in the care of a family-owned daycare.

Kim Baio Dang and Jonathan Buxton left their child, V.M.B., in the care of Sharon Haslerig, owner of Mrs. H’s Day Care on Norris Farms Road in Montgomery County, on June 1, 2020. While unattended and not properly restrained in a Babytrend-brand car seat, the infant was strangled to death when his neck became entangled in the car seat’s strap. The lawsuit claims the infant’s death could have been avoided had Haslerig and others not been negligent in their care of V.M.B.

“The death of a child is always devastating, especially when that death could have been avoided,” Dunson said. “The daycare had a duty to maintain a safe environment and abide by the rules and regulations of the State of Alabama and the Department of Human Resources. But Mrs. H’s Day Care, its owner Mrs. Haslerig, and others failed to properly care, monitor, or supervise this vulnerable, young child. As a result, he was severely injured and died.”

The case number is 03-CV-2021-901180.00.
