Florida Child Injuries

We will research and build your claim against the person or company responsible for your child’s injury while also providing much-needed support. With us by your side, you will not have to navigate this emotional and challenging time yourself.

Common Causes of Child Injuries in South Florida

Josh Jones Law handles an assortment of cases involving child injuries. The most common cases involve injuries caused by:

What Happens If A Parent Signs A Release?

Activity providers can ask parents to sign a pre-injury release before the child engages in activities. The waiver states that the activity poses an inherent risk and protects the provider from lawsuits. However, the language varies on these agreements, and you might still be able to sue, even if you signed a waiver. If your child was injured due to negligence, and the waiver doesn’t explicitly state that you waive your right to sue in case of negligence, you can file a claim. Also, you can file a claim if the waiver only includes language about the inherent risk, but your child’s injury was caused by something else.  
If you have signed such a waiver, take it to a South Florida child injury attorney for further examination. Your attorney will review the document and determine if you have a claim.

Statute Of Limitations For Child Injuries

Parents have four years from the date of the injury to file a claim. If they attempt to file after the statute of limitations passes, the claim will be dismissed. Child injury lawyers in South Florida encourage parents to file claims shortly after the accident occurred. This allows attorneys to gather and preserve evidence and to take witness statements while they are still fresh. Waiting could lead to evidence disappearing or diminishing. Also, waiting could put other children at risk. Filing a claim lets other parents know that the activity, property, or product is dangerous and poses a serious threat to children.
