Take These Cases Seriously
We know that children get themselves into situations. We are not saying that every injury they receive is due to the negligence of another person. However, parents cannot be with their children all the time. We turn over care to various groups and people all the time. This can include the following:
- School administrators
- Daycare staff
- School bus drivers
- Other parents
- Sports coaches
Most of the time, those people do what they should – supervise our kids. However, there are times when they are focused on other things or are not properly trained. That is when incidents happen.
It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries happen with children:
- Broken or dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations or amputations
- Internal organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Traumatic brain injuries (including concussions)
- Spinal cord injuries
Unsupervised children can also ingest substances that cause major internal problems and poisoning. Each of these injuries requires emergency medical care. In many cases, a child will need extensive medical procedures and rehabilitation in order to make a full recovery.
With these cases, you need to know why this happened, who was responsible for the child when the injury happened, and who is going to cover the expenses. You should not be on the line because of another person’s mistakes.
What About Abuse
We know that most injuries a child sustains are not due to the willful acts of an adult, but there are times when the people we trust with our children are abusive.
If you discover that your child has been abused by an adult, contact law enforcement immediately. This includes any kind of abuse – physical abuse or sexual abuse.
In these cases, you will likely be contending with physical injuries as well as emotional and psychological injuries.
