Child Injuries And Personal Injury Law

Children are at a higher risk for injury due to their smaller size, developing motor skills, and lack of awareness of potential dangers. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death for children in the United States. These injuries can result from accidents, negligence, or intentional harm.

 

In personal injury law, child injury cases often fall under the broader category of premises liability and negligence. Premises liability refers to injuries that occur on someone else’s property due to hazardous conditions or lack of maintenance. Negligence refers to situations where someone has failed to exercise reasonable care, resulting in harm or injury to another person.

 

Examples of common child injuries that may fall under these categories include slip and falls, playground accidents, swimming pool accidents, and dog bites. In each of these cases, the property owner or caretaker has a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of children who are on their premises.

 

When it comes to child injury cases, it is important to understand that children have specific vulnerabilities and needs that may not be immediately obvious. For example, young children may not have developed the physical coordination or cognitive abilities to recognize potential dangers. They may also be less able to communicate effectively about hazards or seek help when in danger.

Typical Injury Cases That Involve Children

Slip and Falls

Slip and fall accidents can occur in a variety of settings, such as homes, stores, schools, or playgrounds. Children may slip on wet surfaces, trip over objects, or fall from unstable structures. Property owners have a duty to maintain safe premises and warn visitors of potential hazards. If they fail to do so and a child is injured on their property, they may be held liable for the damages.

Playground Accidents

Playgrounds should be fun for kids, but proper maintenance is crucial to avoid accidents. These range from minor cuts to serious injuries like broken bones or head trauma. Causes include faulty equipment, lack of supervision, and inadequate surfacing. If negligence leads to a child’s injury, the responsible party may be held accountable.

Bullying and Harassment

Bullying and harassment are sadly common among children, both offline and online. These actions can cause emotional harm and physical altercations. Parents and educators must promptly address reports of bullying, take preventive measures, and consider legal action if harm occurs.

Defective Toys

Toys should entertain children, but defective or dangerous ones can cause serious injuries. Choking hazards, sharp edges, or toxic materials make defective toys a safety threat. Parents must inspect toys for age-appropriateness and defects. If a child is injured due to a defective toy, the manufacturer may be held liable for the resulting injuries.

Sports Injuries

Participating in sports keeps children active and healthy. However, there’s always a risk of injury. Coaches and schools must ensure safety measures and well-maintained equipment. Negligence may lead to accountability for injuries sustained by a child.

Car Accidents

Car accidents are a major cause of child injuries and fatalities. Parents must use car seats and seat belts to protect their children, preventing serious harm in crashes. Legal action can be taken if a child is injured due to faulty equipment or lack of restraints.

Medical Malpractice

Children can be injured due to medical malpractice, which can occur during childbirth, surgery, misdiagnosis, or improper treatment. Medical professionals have a duty to provide a standard of care. If they fail and harm a child, it may be considered medical malpractice.

Attractive Nuisance

Children are naturally curious and unaware of potential dangers. Property owners have a responsibility to ensure premises are safe. If attractive nuisances, like swimming pools or construction sites, cause harm to a child due to inadequate security, you can get help from a Los Angeles child injury lawyer.

Los Angeles Child Injury Lawyer: FAQs

Below are some of the commonly asked questions about our Los Angeles child injury attorneys.

How long do I have to file a child injury claim in Los Angeles?

The statute of limitations for filing a child injury claim is typically two years from the date of the incident. However, there are exceptions to this rule, such as cases involving medical malpractice. It is important to consult with our experienced California child injury lawyer as soon as possible to ensure that you meet all necessary deadlines and protect your rights.

What types of compensation can I pursue in a child injury case?

You may be eligible to seek various types of compensation, including medical expenses, future medical care, rehabilitative therapy, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of future earning capacity.

Can I still file a child injury claim if my child’s injury occurred at school?

Yes, you can. School and daycare administrators and staff have a duty of care towards students, and if they fail to provide a safe environment or act negligently, they can be held liable for any resulting injuries. The same may be said if the accident happened in a school bus.
