When a Child Injury Results in a Personal Injury Lawsuit
Children who suffer injury as a result of negligence have the same rights as do adults. In some cases, a child may be entitled to compensation where an adult would not be. It pays to have an experienced Charlotte injury lawyer who can advise families of these rights. In all cases involving injury to a child, the child, through his or her family, should seek financial compensation in a personal injury lawsuit.
An important component of an injury to a child includes the right of the parents to recover for the medical expenses they have incurred, and in some cases, for the emotional distress, they have suffered as a result of their child’s injury.
Areas where a child may be injured and there may be a liability on the part of others include:
- Car accident
- Bicycle accidents
- Injury from consumer products like children’s toys, due to negligent design, errors in manufacturing, or the company’s failure to provide sufficient warnings about the potential danger
- Accidents at swimming pools or playgrounds caused by defective equipment or negligent supervision
- Medical malpractice by a pediatric specialist or emergency room doctor
The types of injuries Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC, have handled for children include brain and spinal cord injuries, injuries arising from medical malpractice, injuries arising from nursing room errors, birth injuries, and on occasion wrongful death.
