As a parent, what changes have you noticed in your child’s behavior before/after the traumatic event?
Over 140,000 child injuries lead to U.S. emergency room visits each year.
Sensitivity has to be the keynote when handling the possible legal implications of child injury. Our child injury lawyers at Tabor Law handle each case with sympathy and with empathy. Our job is to guide the family through a difficult time, when their child has been injured possibly through a preventable accident or negligence of a third party.
Typical situations include those where a child is outside immediate parental supervision: at school, camp, playing organized sports or in day care. Causes of injury may include an event on the property, a moving vehicle or a dangerous or defective physical product. We will listen to your story, assess the facts and advise on the law. And where we believe there is a viable case for compensation, we will pursue damages for categories including medical bills, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Common Questions That
We Can Help You Answer:
My five (5) year old child was "acting like a five (5) year old" when injured. Can we still bring a claim?
Yes. Children are not held to the same standard of care as an adult. A five year old is expected to act and think like a five year old.
Will my child’s settlement need to be Approved by the court?
Yes. Children under the age of 18 are presumed to be incapable of handling their own affairs, so both Guardianship and Court Approval are necessary.
Will my child have to testify in Court?
Probably not. Most insurance companies do not want children testifying because they would testify before a sympathetic audience such as a Judge or Jury.
