Injuries and Accidents to Children

Lawyers representing the children in Florida to give them the much-deserved voice they require

When a child is injured or perhaps even killed, it can be a traumatic experience for the parents or guardians. Although society has steps in place that help to protect all children, accidents still happen whether it is in school, on the playground, the journey to/from school, or even in locations where they play. Sometimes, the injury can be caused by negligence from someone in particular such as a facility manager, driver, caretaker, etc. If this is the case, families need help via a child injury Lawyer and this is exactly what you will find at The Injury Firm in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

If negligence caused your child’s injury or death, let Paul Galsterer and Ross Abramowitz be your first call. After years of experience, we have gained the necessary skills to deal with these cases. When it comes to personal injury cases, The Injury Firm has a passionate team of experts who look to obtain the best reward possible from the case.

Types of Accident - Of all the ways children experience injury, car accidents are actually the most common. According to recent research, well over 600 children (under 12) passed away in car accidents in 2011 alone. In terms of injuries, this is a whopping 150,000 per year and this only seems to be rising over time. Sadly enough, these deaths can be prevented as one-third of all the deaths saw no seat belt engaged for the child. In addition to this, seven in every ten cases sees a misuse of booster seats. If we improved these two factors alone, the shocking numbers could decrease.

Premises Liability - After car accidents, premises liability is also a big offender because children naturally explore the world in a unique way and like to push the limits for how far they can go. Normally, the owner will not be responsible for injures caused after trespassing. However, they are responsible for keeping the area safe if children play nearby. For example, hazards and potential dangers should be fixed such as a car on blocks or even a swimming pool.

Not only does this apply to private property, but it also counts for public spots such as playgrounds, amusement parks, daycare facilities, school grounds, etc. At all times, duty managers should be keeping the area tidy and safe for children. If this isn't done correctly, they may hold the responsibility for any injuries that occur.

Defective Products - Nowadays, there seem to be product recalls every single week but there is one huge problem - they aren't advertised or spread around nearly as much as they should be. If you need to check, there is an up-to-date database at the Consumer Product Safety Commission but it shouldn't be the responsibility of the parents to load this page every single day.

Ultimately, it comes down to the manufacturer because they need to stop letting unsafe products enter the marketplace. If there is a product designed for children, surely they should never reach the hands of the children only to find that it isn't as safe as first thought? If a poor product design or build has caused injury or death to your child, contact The Injury Firm today and we will do everything in our power to help!

School Bus Incidents - Of course, the school buses themselves have been designed with safety in mind and they are the safest way for children to travel to and from school. However, sometimes you can’t control other people on the road and accidents can occur. According to the report mentioned previously, around 25 children die from school bus incidents every year. With the right Lawyer, you will find out who was at fault but, perhaps more importantly, the steps that can be taken to prevent it ever happening again.

Drowning - As locals in Florida, there is no doubting our love for swimming pools, lakes, rivers, and the great big ocean. With all the benefits, there are also some drawbacks to this such as the highest drowning rate across the US (children under 5). When near water deep enough to drown, children need supervision constantly. If there should have been a lifeguard or another caretaker responsible for your child’s safety, this person needs to be accountable for their lack of action and a professional Lawyer will help with every step of the way.

Dog Bites - Finally, children are often vulnerable to dogs because they simply don’t know which dogs should be approached and which are better left alone. Since children are at face level, the injuries to children seem to be a lot worse than injuries to adults and this is a problem that needs to be addressed. Not only do the children experience physical injuries at the time which could cause scarring, they will also develop a dislike and fear of all dogs in the future which will be mental torture for them. Once again, we will do all we can to help and protect you - this is especially true if the dog in question was off a lead and left to roam the area.

Our Mission - Make Florida Safer

If your child has been injured in an accident, we believe that the right parties need to be held accountable especially when it is caused by negligence or recklessness. Whether it is a company,  an individual, an insurance company, or any other body, child representation when it comes to injuries is a difficult task to master. However, we are passionate about our work and continue to provide one of the best services in the area.

Seeing as though children don’t have their own voice just yet, we speak for them and help the parents through the terrifying ordeal. As well as compensation for the parents, we also seek further action so that no other parents have to go through the same thing. For many years, we have been representing members of the community and we are ready to help more whenever required. As long as we continue on our journey and parents continue to contact The Injury Firm, together we can achieve our mission of making Florida safer!
