Child Injuries in California
As a parent, seeing your child in pain is one of the worst experiences you can imagine. You do everything you can to keep your child safe, and you try to make smart decisions that protect your child from situations beyond your control. Yet, no matter what you do, you cannot protect your child completely. Accidents happen; and, when they do, it is important to hire an experienced Los Angeles personal injury attorney to help you pick up the pieces.
At Banafshe Law Firm, PC, we are passionate about representing families in cases involving children’s injuries. We handle all types of cases – from auto accidents to vicious dog attacks – and we help families recover just compensation for all types of traumatic childhood injuries. As a parent, asserting your family’s legal rights after an accident is essential. The costs of your child’s medical treatment could be substantial, and your child’s injuries could potentially impact the rest of his or her life. Our lawyers understand all of this, and we are prepared to do what it takes to secure the compensation your family deserves.
Many different types of accidents can result in severe traumatic injuries for children. Since children’s bodies are still growing, their bones, ligaments and tendons are highly susceptible to being broken or torn in the event of a collision or fall. Children’s brains are more vulnerable to trauma, as well. Sadly, this means that children can easily suffer permanent physical or cognitive disabilities due to events beyond their (and their parents’) control.
Our lawyers represent Los Angeles families in cases involving all types of child injuries resulting from all causes. Some examples of the types of cases we handle include:
Depending on the circumstances involved, various parties can potentially be liable for children’s injuries sustained in traumatic accidents. When you choose our firm to represent your family, our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys will thoroughly investigate the cause of your child’s injuries and identify all legally responsible parties. We will also work closely with you to understand the financial and non-financial costs of your child’s injuries. We will then use our experience in insurance settlement negotiations and litigation to seek just compensation on your family’s behalf.
In personal injury cases involving a child injury, negligent supervision is often discussed. A school, daycare center or other caretaker can be found liable if they did not carefully monitor or control a child’s action. In short, if a judge or jury believes a child’s accident was preventable by reasonable actions, the child’s family could be awarded damages. Thus, as an example, if a teacher could have (and should have) prevented a playground accident, the teacher would be considered negligent.
