You never want to see your child in pain, and when that pain is caused by someone else’s negligent or careless actions, you rightfully want to hold them accountable. You want justice. Children injuries and accidents are the most devastating to parents, leaving some parents feeling as if they’ve been remiss in their duties to protect their little ones from harm. Your child needs you now more than ever to be an advocate on their behalf and to hold the person responsible for their harm to the task. Our legal team can help. If your child has been injured, our Doylestown children injuries attorney can handle the legal fallout while you focus on your child’s recovery.
From bicycle injuries to playground accidents and dog bites, there is a whole host of ways that children can be injured, typically with no warning. Accidents occur in the blink of an eye, forever changing your child’s life, and by extension, your life in ways that you may have never imagined. To add insult to injury, while you are at home tending to your injured child and taking him or her back and forth to medical appointments, you are likely missing out on income that you need to care for your family. For this reason, it is important to file your children injuries claim as soon as feasible following your child’s injury.
Children Injuries Claims
Our legal team has experience assisting parents during some of the most difficult moments of their lives. Children are particularly susceptible to injuries related to:
- Car accidents
- Bus accidents
- Trampoline/playground accidents
- Dog attacks
- Slip and falls/trip and falls
- Pedestrian accidents
- Daycare abuse and neglect
- Negligent supervision
- Attractive nuisance incidents
- Dangerous product incidents
In addition, children may experience injuries during birth. Birth injuries, whether evident at birth or whether they develop during early childhood, affect thousands of children each year.
Our firm also handles wrongful death claims for parents. While no amount of money can make up for the loss of a child, many parents see a wrongful death award as a form of closure in the death and a deterrent for the defendant to use better judgment in the future so that other families do not have to endure the heartache they’ve experienced.
Liability in Children Injuries Claims
To validate your children injuries claim, you will need help establishing a few key components of your case. First of all, the person accused of injuring your child must have a duty to exercise reasonable care for your child. It must be shown that the person breached that duty of care, and the breach of care must be the direct cause of the injury. Further, the injury must be serious enough to qualify for compensation. These validations are all par for the course for a seasoned attorney who is well-versed in personal injury law.
