Scottsdale Child Injury Attorneys
Representing the Families of Injured Children in Scottsdale
Children are more resilient than we often think, but they are also more accident-prone. Children often injure themselves as they do not have the judgment or experience that an adult does. When a child’s injuries are severe, and are due to the negligence or recklessness of another party, parents can take action.
The Husband & Wife Law Team understands what you are facing at this time, as we have eight children of our own. The Husband & Wife Law Team takes a compassionate and strong interest in cases where children have been injured and have been fighting for Scottsdale families for over 20 years. Call us at (602) 457-6222 today.
Common Causes of Child Accidents
Some of the most common accidents in Scottsdale include dog bites and bicycle accidents. Accidents also happen at places like amusement parks, if owners have been negligent in ensuring the safety of visitors.
Accidents such as choking or suffocation in a crib or car seat could occur if manufacturers are negligent and do not meet safety standards. Children could experience a slip-and-fall accident or poisoning if chemicals are not correctly locked away at daycares or schools. Staff at these premises must ensure children are correctly supervised, and that the facility is safe.
In all of these cases, a third party is responsible for your child’s injuries through their negligence. The Husband & Wife Law Team will examine your case to identify who is responsible for your child’s injuries and pursue compensation from them.
Common Injuries a Child May Sustain
Children in Scottsdale could experience myriad injuries from any accident, but the most common include broken bones, scrapes, and cuts. These injuries usually heal with no long-lasting effect, but if they are serious, they may require more intensive medical treatment.
Very serious injuries, such as burns and brain injuries are particularly devastating when experienced by children. Burn injuries may cause continued pain, scars, or disfigurement, as well as leave a child with emotional trauma. Brain injuries could occur as a result of a birth injury, or an accident such as drowning, a slip-and-fall, or a car accident. These injuries are often difficult to treat and require lifelong medical treatment and expense.
Who Can Be Held Responsible for a Child’s Injuries?
Depending on how your child’s injuries were sustained, several entities could be responsible. If the accident occurred at daycare or school, the adult charged with supervising your child could be liable if they were negligent in their supervision. If the accident occurred somewhere there is a reasonable expectation of safety, such as an amusement park, and the owners were negligent or reckless, they could be liable.
Manufacturers are also expected to ensure their products conform to safety standards to prevent accidents such as choking or suffocation. If a manufacturer has been negligent in meeting safety standards, they may be liable if your child has been injured.
Compensation for Your Child’s Injuries
If your child has been injured in Scottsdale, and it is the result of negligence or recklessness, you may be able to claim compensation. Your child may require expensive, long-term, specialist medical care or specialist equipment as a result of their injury.
You can speak to a Scottsdale personal injury lawyer about seeking compensation for this, as well as pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional trauma. Punitive damages may also be awarded. The Husband & Wife Law Team will thoroughly assess your case, and work tirelessly to pursue the maximum compensation available to you for your child’s injuries.
