Compensation in Cases of Child Injuries in Fremont

A top priority for parents is to keep children safe from harm. But accidents can happen at any time, anywhere. Children are especially vulnerable to injuries, and they can cause significant financial, emotional, and physical strain on a family. When a child suffers an injury because of someone else's negligence, it can be challenging to navigate a complex legal system while caring for your child. Bottlinger Law, L.L.C. understands the difficulties facing parents and caregivers when a child is injured in Fremont, and we are here to help.

Common Types of Child Injuries

Children are at risk of injuries in various environments such as schools, daycare, playgrounds, swimming pools, parks, or homes. According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death for children in the United States, and they account for one in four emergency room visits. Some of the most common types of child injuries include:

Car Accidents

Car wrecks are a leading cause of injuries and fatalities among children of all ages. A child can suffer injuries ranging from minor cuts and bruises to severe trauma, such as traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries. Children are particularly vulnerable to serious or even fatal injuries, even when properly restrained in a car seat or booster seat.

Playground Accidents

Playground accidents can cause serious injuries, including fractures, concussions, and burns. Children can sustain injuries due to falls from equipment, faulty or outdated equipment, inadequate supervision, or lack of proper maintenance.

Swimming Pool Accidents

Drowning is the leading cause of injury-related deaths among children ages 1 to 4. Swimming pool accidents can occur for various reasons, such as lack of fencing, inadequate supervision, or lack of training for lifeguards.

Dog Bites

Dog bites can cause significant physical and emotional trauma to a child, especially if the bite causes disfigurement, scarring or requires surgery.

Who is Liable?

When a child suffers an injury, various parties could be held liable for damages. The liable parties may include drivers, property owners, manufacturers of defective products, medical professionals, or product manufacturers and sellers. Depending on the circumstances, a personal injury claim, medical malpractice claim, or product liability claim may be available to the child to seek compensation for damages. Establishing liability in child injury cases can be challenging and requires a thorough understanding of personal injury law.
