Sources of Child Injury Claims
While it might logically seem that most child injuries occur while the
child is with one of their parents, as they are the ones who spend the
most time with the child, the opposite is often true. It is when someone
who has the duty to protect the child but not the parental instincts to
do so that the child is more often placed in unreasonable danger and an
increased risk of injury.
Many child injuries originate from:
Every professional that looks after children to some extent or another
has the specific responsibility to keep them from harm. The duration of
their duty does not affect the liability of it. A babysitter watching
your child for one hour has the same responsibility as the daycare facility
that watches your child all day.
Specialized Compensation in Child Injury Cases
personal injury cases, it can be expected for the plaintiff to pursue a typical set of damages,
such as hospital costs, medical fees, and medication expenses. Any cost
that can be tied directly to the results of the accident should not have
to come from the injured party’s own bank account or pocketbook.
In a child injury case, there are two somewhat-unique damage types you
Nominal: Children are still developing their minds and personalities. Suffering
a serious injury due to another’s negligence can be traumatizing
and leave lasting emotional damage. Using nominal damage in your claim,
you can seek compensation for your child to help give them peace of mind.
Potential income: If the extent of the harm to your child is severe and permanently debilitating,
they could ultimately be ineligible for hiring, promotions, or raises
when they are an adult, depending on their career choice. Your lawsuit
should factor in this lost potential income over your child’s lifetime
and demand it from the liable party.
