What Can Happen In These Cases?
We know the children are more susceptible to injuries. They just get themselves into situations that adults do not. The result is that they frequently sustain some kind of traumatic injury. While we hope that these injuries are minor, they can be severe. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries in children:
- Broken or dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations or amputations
- Internal organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Traumatic brain injuries*
- Spinal cord injuries
*Concussions, a common injury in children, are traumatic brain injuries and need to be taken seriously.
That is why it is so important that the people we trust with the care of our children take the steps necessary to keep them safe. If any of the following people are negligent, they could be held liable in the event an injury occurs:
- School administrators
- Daycare staff
- School bus drivers
- Other parents
- Sports coaches
How do these incidents happen?
In many cases, children get injured because an adult did not properly supervise them. Other times, they happen due to vehicle crashes. We also know that kids can get hurt due to the products they use and consume on a daily basis (toys, medications, foods, bikes, skateboards, and more). If a faulty product is to blame for the injury, the company may be on the line for expenses.
In the worst cases, children are injured as a result of abuse by an adult.
Some of the questions that need to be answered in the aftermath of a child’s injury are:
- Why did this happen in the first place?
- Who was responsible for the child at the time of the incident?
- Who is going to cover the expenses related to the injury?
