Injuries to children can occur under a variety of circumstances including incidents on school trips, automobile accidents, dog bites, mishaps in swimming pools, and accidents resulting from faulty products such as defective car seats or cribs, to name a few. Sometimes the actions of pediatricians or other health professionals can also result in harm, including birth injuries. More serious injuries including broken bones, torn ligaments, soft tissue tears, whiplash, concussions, and spinal cord trauma can have a lasting impact on the life and development of a child, now and in their future.
Parents of children who have been injured due to mistakes made by guardians and trusted adults often find themselves at a loss and are unsure of how best to move forward. They struggle to simultaneously help their child get well and overcome their injuries while wondering what they can do to obtain the restitution that will provide their child with the care they need. This becomes even more complicated because legal cases involving children as plaintiffs are subject to restrictions and requirements such as the use of litigation guardians and the single-minded focus on ensuring that any settlement is in the best interests of the child. The solution is to find and retain a skilled, knowledgeable, and experienced personal injury team who can help to guide you and your family to the resolution you deserve.
