Childhood injuries are incredibly sad and happen all too often. However, they are particularly tragic when they are caused by the negligence of a babysitter, daycare provider teacher, bus driver, or another third party. Since children, especially young ones, are often unable to articulate what caused their injuries, consulting a highly skilled Chicago personal injury attorney from Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. is essential.
If you believe your child’s injury was the result of someone else’s negligent acts, you can count on one of our attorneys to investigate the injury and help you recover the compensation to which you may be entitled. Call today at (312) 236-2900.
Common Childhood Injuries
Although there are a variety of different reasons children injure themselves, in most cases, negligence or a lack of supervision is the cause. At Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C., we have filed lawsuits against daycare centers, schools, camp counselors, or the parents of other children that were responsible for a child’s injury. Several of the most common childhood injuries include head injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and burns and involve the following:
- Medical malpractice
- Slips and falls
- Choking accidents
- Defective or unsafe child products
- Dog bites
- School bus accidents
- Swimming pool and drowning accidents
- Sports accidents
- Playground injuries
How to Prevent Childhood Injuries
It’s important to understand that it’s impossible to watch your child 100 percent of the time and ensure every single environment they are in is completely safe. However, you can reduce their risk of injury by choosing a top-rated daycare provider or school, staying up-to-date on defective child product announcements, only leaving your child with friends or family members you trust, and is properly supervised at all times.
Why a Chicago Personal Injury Lawyer is an Invaluable Resource
After your child sustains an injury, you will likely have many questions about whether the injury was caused by another’s negligence. You’ll probably want to know exactly how the injury occurred and who can be held liable. In addition, you’ll wonder how you’ll pay your child’s medical bills and what kind of effect the injury will have on their future.
An experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer can answer all of these questions and thoroughly explain all of your legal options. They will collect the proper evidence, interview witnesses, and work with insurance companies to ensure that you receive the full and fair compensation you deserve.
Financial recovery can help your child recover and improve their overall quality of life. Compensation in childhood personal injury claims is typically used to pay for medical treatments, therapy and rehabilitation, medical equipment, special education, and pain and suffering.
