Parents Launch Lawsuit Following Daughter’s Death at Vaughan Daycare

For Immediate Release

Toronto (August 8, 2013) – The parents of a two-year-old Toronto girl, who died last month while in the care of a Vaughan home daycare, have launched a lawsuit against the Ontario Ministry of Education and five owner/operators of the daycare facility in order to ensure the safety of other children.

We’ve been advised by the coroner’s office that the death of two-year old Eva Ravikovich was preventable,” said Patrick Brown, partner at McLeish Orlando LLP, the lawyer representing Eva’s parents, Ekaterina Evtropova and Vycheslav Ravikovich. “We hope this case serves as a stark reminder to daycare operators across Ontario to practice their due diligence so that no other parents will have to endure this kind of tragic loss.”

On July 8, 2013, Eva Ravikovich died at the home daycare at 343 Yellowood Circle in Vaughan.

Brown alleges in his statement of claim, that the daycare owner/operators were negligent by failing to provide adequate care and supervision for Eva Ravikovich, exceeded the number of children allowed in the unlicensed home daycare and that members of staff were not properly trained. In addition, Brown also alleges that the Ontario Ministry of Education was negligent by failing to properly inspect, investigate and regulate the daycare, which had been the subject of previous complaints.
