Dallas Child Injury Lawyer
Representation for Injuries to a Child in Texas
When children are injured, parents need legal help and counsel from a lawyer who is familiar with and empathetic to the feelings and concerns parents experience when their child is hurt or lost in a fatal accident. A strictly "legal" handling of a child's accident can increase parents' concern, frustration, and anxiety.
Our Dallas child injury attorneys remain available for questions and support throughout the legal process, and our experience in handling injuries to children means we can help parents access professional support, medical care, and other needed services.
What Does Injury to a Child Mean?
Was your child injured in a playground, school, daycare, park, or local play area? Or was he or she injured at a friend's house, at a health club, a mall, or even a children's birthday party? Of course, children also can be victims of vehicle accidents and bike accidents.
We have handled numerous cases involving children's injuries including:
- Car Accident Injuries: One of the most devastating possible outcomes in any motor vehicle crash is a serious injury to a child. We get to work proving a responsible party's liability through extensive accident investigation and reconstruction and thoroughly evaluate costs for your child's damages and treatment needs. If your child has been seriously hurt in a car accident, or in a pedestrian or bike accident, you need an attorney who will be compassionate in dealing with your family as well as forceful in seeking justice.
- Day Care Accidents: We are familiar with Texas state laws governing licensed daycare providers, which cover issues such as staff-child ratios, background checks, training for staff, proper supervision according to children's ages, and issues involving food safety and cleaning. We are equipped to handle cases involving playground falls, physical abuse, negligence, and other issues.
- Playground Accidents: Whether your child's injuries were caused by the negligence of a daycare provider, school district or some other party, we can guide you through all necessary legal choices, steps, requirements, and processes. We will identify whether negligent supervision, defective design, or other issues played a part.
We have even handled cases involving child abuse and the deaths of unborn children. Often, parents are hesitant to pursue damages if they signed a waiver if they believe filing deadlines/statutes of limitation have passed. Waivers, though, don't absolve negligent parties if they fail to provide adequate supervision of children, and parents can file a claim for damages until the child is 18 years old. Let us help you through this difficult time.
