Injuries to children can be devastating and lead to long-term physical and emotional problems. If your child has been injured due to someone else’s negligence, The Team at Stanley Law can help recover compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages. We work hard to get you the maximum award that you deserve.
How Are Injuries To Children Different?
Children are more susceptible to injuries because they have less experience and impulse control than adults. For example, a child may see a dog and run up to pet it without any precaution, which can lead to being bitten or attacked. The effects of an injury can be particularly catastrophic or traumatic for a child and may require long-term medical and psychological treatment to help them cope with the trauma of the event. Often, an injury can also cause more physical damage than it would to an adult because of a child’s size or age. Don’t go it alone. Joe knows exactly what to do to build a solid claim and recover the compensation your child deserves.
Common Types Of Injuries To Children
Our team of experienced personal injury attorneys has represented many children who have suffered scarring, disfigurement, and head, brain, spinal cord, and other catastrophic injuries. Defective products such as toys, furniture, and small parts without proper warnings can seriously injure or kill a child. Children are also drawn to things they consider fun, like swimming pools and trampolines. When property owners do not take proper measures to secure such items, they may be liable if the injury or death of a child happens.
Some common causes of injuries to children include:
- School and bus accidents
- Animal bites and attacks
- Swimming pools
- BB guns
- Playground equipment
- Motor vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents
- Defective products
- Ingestion of household products
- Birth injuries
- Playground equipment
- Sports accidents
- Child sex abuse
- Daycare neglect or abuse
