We Handle Many Common Child Accident Scenarios
No parent can protect their child from every potential danger. There are frankly too many possibilities to consider. But some of the more common types of child injury cases we handle include:
- Bicycle Accidents
- Big Box Store Slip and Falls
- Bus Accidents
- Collapsing Stairs and Decks
- Car Accidents
- Dog Bites
- Elevator and Escalator Accidents
- Grocery Store Slip and Falls
- Hotel & Resort Slip and Falls
- Playground Accidents
- Retail Store Slip and Falls
- School Accidents
- Sidewalk Trip and Falls
- Swimming Pool Accidents & Drowning
How and where your child was injured can often make a significant difference when it comes to seeking compensation. For example, if your child was injured in a car accident while you were driving, your own Florida no-fault insurance policy will likely cover most of your child’s medical bills. Alternatively, if your child was injured while playing at school, you may be able to sue the school for damages, although you may need to follow certain special procedures if it is a public school. And if your child was bitten by a dog there are specific rules governing the legal liability of the animal’s owner.
Another key factor in child injury cases is the potential long-term consequences. Obviously, a child’s mind and body is in a state of constant growth and development. While this can help them recover quicker from certain injuries, it can also place them at extreme risk in other cases. Some of the more catastrophic child injury cases include the following:
- Birth Injuries
- Burn Injuries
- Damage to Internal Organs
- Eye Injuries
- Loss of Limbs (Amputation Injuries)
- Severe Bone Fractures
- Spinal Cord damage & Paralysis
- Traumatic Brain Injuries & Concussions
In a personal injury case, you can recover a wide range of financial damages as compensation for your child’s present and future recovery. This includes money to pay for your child’s medical treatment, your financial losses if you need to stay home to care for your child, and compensation for your child’s emotional trauma and any permanent disability.
