With over 14 million accidents being reported every year, childhood injury is perhaps one of the most dangerous and traumatic experiences that a family can face.
From negligent supervision at daycare to a detrimental accident during football practice, dog bites while playing outdoors to injury on school grounds, there are a great number of dangers that can result in an even more devastating injury for your child. Moreover, due to both a warm climate and being a top vacation destination, a great amount of these children’s injuries unfortunately occur in the state of Florida.
With smaller bodies and a lower pain tolerance than the average adult, children are prime targets for serious injury and even wrongful death in everyday life and activities.
A minor grows both mentally and physically into their early twenties and therefore faces the possibility of injury and even wrongful death throughout all stages of youth. From infant to toddler to teen, all injuries on minors found to be the result of negligent or hazardous actions of another can be viable for a children’s claim. Due to this basis, children’s personal injury claims can be quite diverse and vary greatly.
The most common children’s injury claims are:
- Automobile and Truck Accidents (i.e. Collision, Car Seat Defect, and Parking Lot Negligence)
- School-Related Accidents (i.e. Field Trip, School Bus, and Injury on School Property)
- Day Care Accidents and Negligence
- Water-Related Accidents and Drownings (i.e. Bathtub, Pool, Lake, and Retention Pond)
In the wake of great injury and pain, everyday life can become a nightmare for both you and your child.
Medical bills mount with each passing day, the fight for appropriate compensation from the insurance company continues to be a struggle, and tending to your child is resulting in a lack of school and work attendance. Furthermore, watching your child suffer may be causing you pain as well.
Although you may have done all that you could to teach safety and awareness to your child, in most cases involving children’s injury, the accident is regrettably due to the negligent actions of another.
Whether they were a nanny, nearby motor vehicle driver, or field trip chaperone, the majority of children’s injury claims arise when the people that we trust to keep our children safe perform in a hazardous and careless manner and thus cause our children to be injured.
