Children and infants are among the most vulnerable members of our society, making them easily susceptible to injuries – such as those from a dangerous product, or injuries at a daycare center or playground that happen because of negligence. Catastrophic injuries from products or negligence can involve fractures, brain injuries or spinal cord injuries, and can impact a child for the rest of his or her life.
Consider that thousands of children are injured each year by dangerous or defective products, including car seats, trampolines, toys and playground equipment. In these cases, it may be possible to pursue a product liability claim against the designer or manufacturer, which may help you recover necessary funds to cover current and future medical expenses.
Finally, although safety measures are in place, a simple act of carelessness on the part of property owners can be disastrous. If your child has a slip-and-fall accident, dog bite or other accident as a result of a dangerous property setting, you may be able to pursue a premises liability claim to recover financial damages.
