Accidents Involving Minors
As parents, it’s our instinct to ensure our children’s protection. We wipe away every tear, hold hands when crossing the road, and fasten their seatbelts every single time. We know that we are responsible for keeping them safe. Unfortunately, it’s other’s actions that often lead to accidents involving minors.
Despite our care, minors may get hurt.
The leading cause of death in children over one year of age is trauma. Each year, more than 6,000 children die as a result of accidental injuries. More than 14,000,000 children experience injuries each year due to someone else’s negligence.
Our experienced injury attorneys have successfully dealt with hundreds of accidents involving minors. From swimming pools injuries and recreational games to car accidents we have handled many types of cases. Our team understands that the emotional, physical, and financial losses resulting from your child’s injuries can be as devastating as they are unexpected.
The cause of an accident determines whether you’re eligible for a case. Defective products, including faulty car seats, strollers and cribs, flammable infant clothing, and dangerous toys are common causes of injury to children. Car accidents are also a frequent cause of injuries to children. Misdiagnosis of an illness or negligent treatment of an illness are examples of medical malpractice that can cause injury to children.

When the medical treatment of an injured child has been completed and it has been established that serious health problems will remain for life, the fear of parents takes on a new dimension: Will our child ever be able to graduate from school?
