Unfortunately, in some cases, childhood injuries can be catastrophic and even result in death. If negligence was a factor in your child’s injury or death, you may want to consider legal action against the negligent parties and our South Florida child injury lawyers can help. This is something you should seriously consider for several reasons:
1. To make sure no other child suffers the same trauma.
2. To hold accountable any negligent party or company for the injuries caused to your child.
3. Your child’s injuries may leave you struggling financially.
4. Your child deserves to be compensated for his/her pain and suffering as a result of the negligence that caused the unnecessary injury.
Our compassionate child injury attorneys have the resources and the knowledge to aggressively pursue the negligent parties in your child’s injury case.
The leading cause of death in children over the age of one is trauma. Every year, over 6,600 children die from injuries. Shockingly, 14,000 children suffer injuries every year from negligence. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for children in the United States. Swimming pool and boating accidents, along with poisoning, fires and playground injuries cause a significant number of the 435,000 visits to the emergency room for traumatic brain injuries (TBI) each year.
An additional 200,000 emergency room visits are for playground injuries each year. Children are more vulnerable to injury than adults; they do not have the maturity to have developed “common sense” to avoid hazardous situations. Children are still growing and a traumatic injury to a child can be catastrophic during certain stages of development. Children have a small body mass, so they cannot ingest a large amount of toxins without serious damage being done to their bodies.
