Types of Child Injuries

There is no shortage of opportunities for a young child to become injured.  Minor injuries, such as small cuts, scrapes, and bruises are bound to happen.  Particiaption in sports or playground activites such as a slide may pose a risk for greater injuries such as sprains and broken bones.  Bouncy houses, bike accidents, or swallong a hazardous object such as a magnet or battery have been known to cause havvoc on a small body.  Poisons can quickly kill a child when ingested.  Shopping carts and  falling TV's or furniture can cause serious head injuries to a small child.  Car accidents can be especially dangerous, especially if the child is not restrained in a protective car seat.  Just about anything could happen for a minor child to be injured in an accident.  The questions is, "did the accident happen as a result of the negligence of someone else?" If you answer "yes" to the question, or if you speculate that the answer may be "yes," seek an attorney who has experience representing children.  After your free consultation with an Action Law Offices accident lawyer, you'll find that the legal advice provided is a good place to start.

Child Injury Scenarios

  • Was your child injured in an auto accident? Despite the safety intention of car seats, they can be recalled for defects or  installed incorrectly.  Even if the child was buckled in correclty with a properly functioning child-seat or seatbelt, an auto accident can be especially devestating to a fragile child.  Children will likely suffer more seriously injuries than an adult.  Our law firm can determine what caused the car accident.
  • Did your child get hit by a car?  If your child was injured in a dart-out accident (running into the street), was the driver taking appropriate care?  Was your child crossing the street? If your child was injured while biking, did the driver of the vehicle take all necessary precautions? Our law firm can determine who is really at fault and hold that party responsible.
  • Did negligence cause serious injury to your child? When an apartment complex sets the water temperature too high and a child suffers a burn injury, when a playground swing is poorly repaired and causes a fall and brain injury, someone has to be held accountable.  When an improperly maintained swimming pool causes a drowning accident, or when a dog bites a child, someone is responsible.  It is our job to uncover the details to find out who should be held liable.
  • Did your child ingest a dangerous product? A lopsided stepstool at a daycare, a poorly designed toy, an inappropriate medication or toxic liquid can put a child in great danger.  Was an adult supposed to be responsible for the safety of your child?  We have experience with defective products (products liability) and many more child-related cases.  Discuss your case with an injury lawyer who knows how to make an effective claim.
  • Was your child assaulted? Our personal injury attorneys have handled difficult cases involving physical assaults and sexual assaults of children. We have the compassion to help you through a difficult time and the legal knowledge to hold the responsible people accountable.  (Including their employers if necessary.)  For medical and psychological injuries your child may have suffered, our law firm can help get the compensation you deserve.

Before Contacting a Personal Injury Lawyer, You Should Know:

The insurance adjustor is on the insurance company’s side, not yours.

Some are aggressive and try to scare people into not making a claim or into accepting very little compensation. Other adjustors seem kind and helpful — and then use your own words to deny your claim. The bottom line: the less the insurance company has to pay out, the more incentive the adjustor has.

We will investigate to establish liability and damages.

Our law firm has extensive resources to investigate an accident and assess who was at fault, regardless of the accident type. We work with a range of investigators and experts whose expertise provides crucial information for our determination of a fair settlement value.

Our attorneys can explain your coverage and your rights.

If you were hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver, your insurance company may fail to tell you about your rights under your own policy. We can also help you understand your medical coverage under your health insurance policy.
