Injuries to Children
Injured Child Attorney
An injury to an innocent child can be angering to any parent, especially if you know the injury could have been prevented. When your child is seriously injured by a negligent caretaker or homeowner, you may feel frustrated, shocked, and angry that your child was injured because of another's negligence. If your child was seriously injured, you need an attorney who can aggressively pursue any claims on behalf of your child and your family. At the Williams Law Firm, we are experienced in taking on claims related to accidents and injuries to children.
We believe it is important that any law firm representing seriously injured children in cases have an experienced, in-house investigator in the office. That is why we have an experienced, in-house investigator on staff and available to investigate all our cases.
Our firm assists the parents and guardians of injured children pursue claims against parties responsible for serious injuries and death resulting from negligent care or maintenance.
Children are often victims of serious injuries because of their curiosity or lack of experience. Unlike adults, children lack the ability to discern dangerous situations. If your child was the victim of negligence, do not wait to contact our firm.
At the Williams Law Firm, we can assist you in any of the following common claims related to injured children:
- Dog bites
- Swimming pool accidents
- Playground injuries
- Dangerous toys
- Child safety harness failure
- Product liability: safety helmet failures, car seat failures, jogging
- stroller, bicycle trailer accidents, crib, playpens
- Premises liability
- Sports injuries
- Lead poisoning
- Brain injuries
- Catastrophic injuries
- Wrongful death
Children fall victim to dog bites more often than adults because they are curious about animals and do not know that many dogs are dangerous. If your child was bitten by a dog, our attorneys will pursue the maximum compensation available for scarring, reconstructive surgery, or emotional trauma related to the attack.
Swimming pool accidents
Swimming pool accidents involving children often occur when no one is around because pools can attract children who don't appreciate what a dangerous place pools can be, especially when no one is looking. Our attorneys are experienced in handling swimming pool accident claims involving drowning, brain damage, and other serious injuries.
Schools, as well as private caretakers, have a duty to maintain playground equipment to ensure the safety of children. Unfortunately, many children continue to be injured by dangerous equipment or a failure to supervise. If your child was severely injured on a playground, our attorneys can assist you in the investigation of the injury and pursuing compensation from any responsible parties.
