Mesa Child Injury Lawyers
Compensation for Your Child's Injuries
Families are dedicated to protecting the health and wellbeing of their children at all costs, but even the most dedicated parents cannot keep their child safe from all forms of harm. While children are naturally involved in some accidents in the course of their childhood, when such incidents result in serious injuries, the results could affect a child throughout his or her life. When these injuries are due to the negligence or recklessness of another party, parents and guardians have the right to seek compensation from those responsible in order to aid their loved one in recovery and to cope with the financial hardships that come with such injuries.
The Mesa child injury attorneys at Breyer Law, P.C., understand how important finding compensation for a child's injuries is and are dedicated to helping children and their families cope with such devastating accidents. Whether or not your child has been in a serious accident, it is incredibly important to understand the potential consequences of a child injury accident as well as your rights as a parent.
Frequent Types of Child Injury Accidents
Child injuries are as varied as adult personal injuries, and children can be involved in almost all of the same types of accidents as adults, however, the injuries that result are often more serious. Because a child is smaller and less developed than an adult, accidents like car crashes or falls have a greater impact and toxic exposure takes less time to become deadly. Common causes of child injuries include:
- Auto accidents;
- Defective child products;
- Swimming pool accidents;
- Slip and falls;
- Child care accidents;
- Brain trauma; and
- Medical malpractice
Finding Responsible Parties at Fault for Child Injuries
Depending on the type of accident that a child is injured in, there may be many different parties responsible for the injuries that have been sustained. An injured party must prove that the accident, such as a car crash, was the result of the at-fault party's actions and that the injuries and losses being claimed are the direct result of the accident. In cases of product liability, such as a defective high chair that causes a child to fall, the injured party must prove that they did not improperly use the product but that defects in the product were the direct cause of the accident and the resulting injuries. Additionally, the amount of compensation being sought must be proven as necessary as the jury may find that a different, possibly lesser, amount is needed for the injured party. However, finding proper compensation and holding responsible parties at fault can be almost impossible without qualified legal assistance.
