Accidents are a part of life. They can happen at any time and unfortunately, some of them happen to children. It's important for parents to be aware of the types of accidents their children may be at risk for so that they can keep them as safe as possible.
Some common types of accidents that children may experience include:
Roadside accidents: These can occur when a child is riding a bike or walking near a road. This is because they don’t have the same ability to judge speed as adults and therefore may not be able to avoid an accident when another vehicle comes speeding toward them.
School bus accidents: These can also be very dangerous. They generally occur when kids are boarding or exiting a school bus and fail to look both ways before crossing the street. This can lead to serious injuries such as broken bones or even death if a car is passing by at high speed at the time of impact.
Slip and fall accidents: These often result in minor injuries such as cuts or bruises but can also cause more serious problems such as broken bones if your child falls from a height such as stairs or even just tripping over something like furniture in their own home.
Dog bites: These can cause serious injuries, so parents should teach their children how to act around dogs and keep them away from strange dogs.
Burns, broken bones, lacerations, and eye injuries are the most common types of injuries that happen in the kitchen. Burns occur when a child touches a hot surface or when a hot substance like grease is spilled.
A broken bone can be caused by an impact or the body suddenly twisting during play.
Lacerations can happen if a knife, scissors, or other sharp object is handled carelessly.
Eye injuries can happen from splashing hot or corrosive liquids into the eyes, or from steam that comes off a boiling pot of water.
In most cases, the person responsible for the injuries caused by neglect is the caregiver. Neglect includes failing to provide care, failing to ensure proper hygiene, and failing to protect a child from harm.
An exception to this may be if a child is hurt due to malfunctioning equipment or other external factors that could not have been reasonably foreseen to cause an injury. In that case, another person, company, or entity is responsible through negligence or carelessness.
Unfortunately, many parents are unaware of the compensation they could be entitled to after their child has been injured. The following is a list of some common types of compensation that may be available to you if your child has been injured:
- Medical bills: If your child was injured and required medical treatment, you can often apply for compensation for your child's medical bills.
- Lost wages: If your child missed time from work because of the injury, you can apply for payment of those lost wages.
- Pain and suffering: If your child's injuries were particularly severe or resulted in long-term pain or disfigurement, you may be able to receive compensation for this as well.
- Loss of earning capacity: This type of compensation is generally only available if your child has suffered permanent disability or disfigurement as a result of an accident.
