For parents, guardians, and responsible citizens, any injury sustained by a child is a cause for concern. Unfortunately, children’s impressionability and defenselessness make them particularly vulnerable to injury and abuse. Because children are in an ongoing state of physical and emotional growth, child injuries can have a long-term impact that persists longer than adult injuries. Whether the injury was caused by abuse, negligent supervision, medical malpractice, or product defect, any degree of harm sustained by a minor could result in immediate or future symptoms that have the potential to hinder development. In order to keep a child’s best interest in mind, child injury cases often require immediate action.

Instances of child injury can be very frightening for all parties involved. It is a parent’s deepest wish that their child has the opportunity to grow up happy and healthy. Sadly, preventable injuries are inflicted onto minors all too often. At Helping Hand, our dedicated injury lawyers believe in the protection of those most vulnerable to harm. We fight for families who have been hurt by the negligent actions of a careless party and work to minimize childhood trauma, while not subjecting injured children to undue burden.

Types of Child Injuries

A large portion of child injury occurs because those responsible for the child fail to provide proper supervision. Those who fail to keep a watchful eye may include a teacher, daycare employee, babysitter, coach, caregiver, parent, guardian, or bus driver. Common cases involving child injury include:

  • Toy or product defect
  • Bicycle accident injury
  • Birth defect injury
  • Drowning or other swimming pool related injury
  • Burn injury
  • Playground injury
  • School bus injury
  • Motor vehicle injury
  • Crib injury
  • Daycare injury
  • Dog bite injury
  • Amusement park injury

Children can also suffer injury at the hands of medical professionals who fail to correctly diagnose conditions, delay treatment, or perform unnecessary medical procedures on a child. The ability to form reasoned judgment is significantly underdeveloped for children, making it easy for children to be taken advantage of by adults who do not have their best interests in mind. This also gives them a tendency to make decisions that may result in avoidable injuries if they’re not closely monitored.

Common Child Injuries

Injuries to children generally require litigation guardians and court approval of all settlements to insure the best interests of the child. We have the necessary expertise and experience in serious children’s injuries including:

  • Brain Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Orthopaedic Injuries
  • Neurological Injuries
  • Other Serious Injuries

Beyond doing everything to ensure maximum financial compensation, we focus on helping your child receive the best rehabilitation possible so that he or she can focus on school and life. We ensure pediatric neurologists, specialists in education, speech language pathologists and other physicians are in place so that your child can focus on treatment.

Knowing your child has suffered a preventable injury can be difficult. Our injury lawyers are committed to fighting on behalf of you and your child for the compensation that your family will need after an accident for the best care and rehabilitation possible. We are sensitive to how the legal process may affect the child and work to address parents’ every concern.
