PHILADELPHIA – The parent of a boy who allegedly suffered a broken arm during an outside activity at a daycare’s after-school program has sued the program and its supervisor in a Philadelphia court.

Grace White of Philadelphia (individually and on behalf of her son, minor Kevin Awoir) filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Dec. 8 versus United Parents For Successful Children and Jane Doe (individually and as a supervisor), both also of Philadelphia.

During the times relevant in the litigation, UPSC operated and controlled the school playground at the Samuel Gompers School in Philadelphia. On or about Dec. 10, 2015, minor-plaintiff Kevin Awoir was a five year-old student in UPSC’s after-school program. That same day, the suit states Doe “negligently and recklessly” allowed Awoir to fall off the top of the sliding board, breaking his arm and suffering a severe fracture.

The lawsuit says the defendants’ actions in the instant case constituted carelessness and recklessness, which was the proximate cause of Kevin’s fractured right arm.

For multiple counts of negligence, the plaintiff is seeking damages, jointly and severally, in an amount in excess of $50,000, plus interest and costs.

The plaintiff is represented by Warren R. Hamilton in Philadelphia.
