Every year, one in four children is seriously injured and will require medical attention. Children’s injuries are sometimes accidental but other times the injuries result from the negligence of an individual or company. Children’s injuries range from broken bones to more serious injuries like brain and spinal cord injury, burns, and dog bites.
Our personal injury lawyers in Antelope Valley can investigate the cause of your child’s injury to find out if the accident was the responsibility of another. If it can be proved that someone else acted with negligence, you and your child may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and any other expenses incurred because of the injury.
Children’s injuries can be caused by slip and fall injuries or striking the head, choking on dangerous products, and by car accidents and bus accidents. All of these injuries can lead to life-long effects from the trauma associated with the accident, permanent disability, extensive medical treatment and in some cases even death.
Most children’s injuries can be prevented if the property owner or corporation responsible for the injury had taken the proper precautions. In these cases, the child’s parents can bring a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible parties to seek compensation to pay for the costs of treatment, losses, pain, and emotional trauma to the child and the parents as a direct result of the preventable injury.
