When Could a Children’s Injury Lawyer Be the Right Next Step?
Unfortunately, there is no shortage of ways kids get hurt. While some injuries are just general bumps and bruises that small children experience every day, other injuries are caused by someone else’s negligence. That’s when you might need to pursue a personal injury lawsuit.
For example, more than 200,000 kids go to the ER every year because of playground-related injuries. According to the National Safety Council, playground accidents can happen for a variety of reasons, including elevated areas without barriers, head entrapment spaces like openings between rails, sharp edges and ground surfaces without at least 12 inches of protection from exposed concrete or other hard surfaces.
These structural hazards shouldn’t exist. If they do — and cause your kid to hurt themselves — it might be time to reach out to a children’s injury lawyer.
Meanwhile, about 8,000 kids in the U.S. are treated in emergency rooms every year for fall-related injuries. These could be anything from broken bones or soft tissue injuries to serious head injuries.
Super Woman Super Lawyer Maryam Parman, founder of Avrek Law Firm, recently won an 11 million dollar personal injury settlement from a similar case. A young boy suffered a significant brain injury after falling through a defective window. As a top children’s injury lawyer in the country, Parman was able to hold multiple parties accountable, including the Homeowners Association, window manufacturer and the property’s brokers.
Other common personal injury lawsuits involving children include injuries sustained because of daycare negligence, dog bites, bicycle accidents or car accidents.
My Child Was in a Car Accident… Now What?
More than 162,000 kids suffered injuries from car accidents in 2021 — that’s an average of about 444 every day.
It’s impossible to protect against all crashes, especially if another driver’s negligence is involved. However, parents can rest a little easier when they buckle their kid into one of the best rated car seats for safety. The more you proactively prepare for the worst, the more peace of mind you’ll have as you drive your kid to school, the park or their grandparents’ house.
No parent ever wants their child to be a part of the nation’s car crash statistics. But if you do find yourself in an accident while your child is in the car, keep in mind a few important things:
Get to safety. It’s impossible to assess injuries, or protect your child, if you’re still in the middle of the road where the crash happened. Pull over to evaluate next steps.
Pay attention to all symptoms. Some injuries will be obvious, like bruises or bleeding cuts. But some won’t be as obvious to the naked eye. If your child complains of a head or backache, even if you don’t see an outward injury, go to the doctor immediately.
Evaluate your legal options. Most insurance companies will pay out the bare minimum after a car accident. Depending on the extent of your child’s injuries, this might not be enough. That’s when it can be helpful to have excellent legal support — like Maryam Parman.
