What can happen to our children?
It is no secret that kids can get themselves into harrowing situations. They have a natural curiosity, which is why we are always watching over them. However, we cannot be there all the time and we often entrust other adults with their care. Which people have a responsibility to keep your child safe?
- School administrators
- Recreation directors
- Daycare staff
- School bus drivers
- Other parents
- Sports coaches
Each of these people has a duty to ensure that our kids are safe. When they fail to properly supervise our children or when they are negligent or careless, our children can get injured.
We also know that children can be harmed due to the failure of schools, government agencies, and companies to properly inspect and maintain their premises, including playground equipment.
Defective products can also cause serious harm to our children. It is not uncommon for toys and children’s devices (car seats, sleepers, etc.) to be recalled, but not before injuries or deaths have already occurred.
What kind of injuries can occur?
We commonly see the following injuries as a result of the things discussed above:
- Broken or dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations or amputations
- Internal organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
Many people do not think that concussions are serious, but they happen to millions of kids each year (most often in those who play contact sports). Coaches and school staff must follow proper concussion protocol in order to properly recognize and treat head injuries. If a child with a concussion suffers a secondary blow to the head, they could sustain serious, life-threatening injuries.
