Child Injury Lawyers

Fighting for Justice & a Fair Recovery for Your Child

When an adult is injured in an accident, the impact can be tremendous. When a child suffers a catastrophic injury in such an accident, it is even more devastating. Many children who are seriously injured will require lasting treatment. In some cases, injury to a child can affect them for a lifetime. If your child has been seriously injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, it is critical that you seek help from an experienced child injury lawyer.

What to Do If Your Child Is Injured

When your child is injured, the first thing you need to do is seek medical treatment. Not only is immediate medical care important for your child’s wellbeing and physical recovery, it can prove crucial for the outcome of your case. Having medical records can help establish that your child was, in fact, injured as a result of the accident. Additionally, it is important to understand that if serious injuries require lifetime treatment, trust funds and medical funds should be established to pay these expenses. The emotional trauma of the injury also needs to be taken into account. Both you and your child may require therapy or emotional counseling to aid in the healing process.

In addition to seeking medical treatment for your child, you should:

  • Get the contact info of anyone else involved in the accident (if applicable)
  • Take down any witness statements and information, if possible
  • Document your child’s injuries and the scene of the accident by taking photos
  • Refrain from making any statements about the accident until speaking with an attorney
  • Contact a child injury lawyer who has experience handling child injury cases

Child injury cases are unlike other types of personal injury cases in that there are often many unique factors that must be taken into account. Based on our decades of legal experience, we know how to navigate child injury cases. We know the amount of compensation certain types of injuries require, general life expectancies for various injuries, how to devise a “life care plan” for your child, and how to coordinate with school district officials so that a special education plan may be developed.
