How Yuma Slip and Fall Accidents Can Impact Your Small Children

By Breyer Law Offices on January 15, 2015

Arizona Child InjuryWhen you have small children, you want them to live every day with wonder and to never have to worry about being involved in a Yuma slip and fall accident. Unfortunately, small children already face a significant risk for being involved in these types of accidents. They love to run a lot, to slide on ice and slippery surfaces, and play in many areas where they probably shouldn’t. Serious slip and fall accidents involving young children are also common because young kids don’t understand the risks involved with hazards like puddles of water on the floor or broken tiles at the grocery store.

As a parent, it is important for you to understand the impact that a significant injury sustained in a slip and fall accident could have on your child and their future. Read on to learn about some of the most common outcomes of these types of accidents and how they can impact child victims for the rest of their lives.

  • Slip and fall injuries can impact bone and growth development. If your child sustained a broken bone or other serious injury during a slip and fall accident, chances are that they may experience issues as they grow older. This is because the breaking of a bone in a young child can cause serious problems over time as their bones continue to grow. The same is true of injuries involving the muscles and tissues.
  • Disfigurement. Some children who are involved in slip and fall accidents sustain injuries that cause permanent disfigurement of their facial features or other body parts. This can have a significant impact on your child’s emotional development and also on their ability to fit in with others.
  • Permanent disability. Unfortunately with slip and fall accidents, there’s a risk of permanent disability, depending on the severity and the location of the injury.

It is important to understand the risks that your children have each and every time they are involved in a slip and fall accident. As a parent, it is even more critical for you to watch out for the hazards that could cause a child’s slip and fall accident and teach your children how to avoid these hazards so that they can protect themselves at all times.
