One of the worst things to experience as a parent is when a serious illness or injury occurs to your young child. Unlike adults, children do not have the knowledge and experience necessary to avoid accidents. In many instances, rules and regulations are enacted to help secure the safety of children, but in many instances, these guidelines are ignored by others or not enforced. When someone’s carelessness or negligence has resulted in personal injury or death of a child, you deserve to take action.

In these instances, you need a lawyer that understands the specific needs associated with a childhood injury. For one, the law takes into account that a child should not be held responsible for their actions that may have contributed to the accident. Further, compensation for these injuries must encompass the psychological and emotional effects that can arise.
If your child has been harmed in any of the following ways, contact our injury lawyers immediately:
The result of these accidents can be brain injuries, broken bones, burns, internal damage, psychological ramifications, and more. We can work with you to determine the next best course of action and what steps need to be taken in order for you to get the justice you are entitled to! Don’t wait- time is of the essence and the sooner we can act on your behalf, the better.
The most important part of any childhood injury is determining who is at fault for the accident. Since the child is legally unable to be held accountable, negligence generally falls on the child’s parents, other individuals, or the school or daycare the child was at during their injury. This party can be accountable for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
