Fort Worth Child Injury Lawyers
File a Child Injury Claim
Our children are priceless and cannot be replaced by anything in the entire world. Children are innocent and dependent on us for guidance. It sometimes happens that parents entrust their younger children (infants, toddlers, and adolescents) to caretakers, or rely upon the social promise of responsibility expected from all persons towards children. That promise is unfortunately sometimes violated and there can be extremely negative consequences.
Furthermore, children are usually unaware of any potential dangers such as speeding cars, or rabid dogs, so they must rely upon adults to behave in an acceptable way. The bottom line is there is no comparable violation against parental rights, and even those of the children themselves, when the children are injured in any way or killed at the hands of someone you trusted, or a stranger. Often, we hear of young children being injured or killed by the actions of other people or corporations. These incidents are tragic, but the parents may be entitled to compensation.
Accidents involving children can lead to serious injuries, permanent disability or even death. There is nothing sadder than having to see a child suffer from a disabling injury that renders him/her unable to walk, see or talk. Parents also suffer in these incidents.
Common Causes of Child Accidents
Personal injury lawsuits involving children can help cover medical costs that could possibly span their entire lifetime. There are many causes of accidents involving children, but some of the common causes of these accidents include:
- Birth injuries
- Fireworks use
- Cars and other motor vehicle accidents
- Household fires
- Ingestion of household products such as cosmetics and personal care products, medications, cleaning agents, or plants
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Dog bites, etc.
Whether the injury is caused by a negligent physician, an automobile accident, or a defective product, anyone who injures a child is held liable for his/her action and will be held accountable.
