Child Injury Case Considerations
According to the CDC’s Child Incident Report, the majority of injuries sustained involve motor vehicle accidents, falls, drowning, burns, and animal bites. These situations all require proof that someone was negligent and that this negligence was the cause of the injuries to the child. If a legal representative can establish that negligence, then the child can recover any related expenses, as well as pain and suffering accompanied with the injury. If the child was old enough to be employed at the time of the injury, the child may be able to recover for lost wages as a result of being injured.
Sometimes an act of negligence and/or carelessness results in more than just serious injury. Unfortunately, a parent’s greatest asset may pass away all too soon. If your child has died due to the wrongful acts or recklessness of another, you are entitled to recover for the loss of the child, his/her love, compassion, companionship, and affection. This type of action is known as a wrongful death case.
