Every year, hundreds of thousands of children are permanently injured due to traumatic events that can lead to serious deficiencies regarding cognitive thinking, language, learning, emotional development and sensation, loss of eyesight and mobility, brain or spinal injuries and other devastating yet preventable injuries.
The most common pediatric injuries include:
- Car accidents
When your child is permanently injured, the pain and concern you feel are immense and you may not know where to turn for help.
Our Approach To Childhood Injury Litigation
Through our work and our personal experiences, we are sensitive to the nature of the injuries and emotions involved in childhood injury cases, and our catastrophic personal injuries attorneys are committed to doing everything we can to fight on behalf of a permanently injured child and his/her family.
Children have a unique understanding of the world that is remarkably different from that of an adult. Young children, for example, are unable to fully understand the types of danger that may be around them. Over the years we’ve built relationships with a number of childhood professionals, including pediatric neurologists and early childhood development specialists, who often assist us in more fully understanding the unique nature and circumstances of your child’s injuries.
Throughout the entire legal process, we work closely with those affected, helping to hold accountable those responsible for wrongdoing and seeking the compensation that they deserve.
Our Experience with Childhood Injury Lawsuits
Our catastrophic personal injury team has worked on a number of childhood injury cases ranging from individual suits against property or business owners for severe permanent trauma sustained due to negligence (such as home elevator-related injuries), to multi-district litigation involving hundreds of consolidated claimants against major corporations, including manufacturers of lead paint pigment related to childhood lead poisoning. Our team works closely with families to ensure that they are comfortable with each step of the legal process and does what it can to lessen anxiety and offer support and information during an often overwhelming and emotional time.
