Injuries to Children

Children are our most important resource. They are the pride of their parents and nothing is more devastating to a caring mother or father than imaging harm coming to their child.  We all love our children and do not want any harm caused to them.

Has your child been injured due to negligent or intentional conduct of another person? Everyday young children in Florida are injured because of the actions and choices of adults or corporations. Whether the trauma is caused by a dangerous child product, a store condition, or an automobile accident, anyone who injures a child because of carelessness or decisions that put profits over safety should be held accountable for their actions.

Injuries to children can have both a physical and psychological component. Serious injuries to children can present life altering challenges to not just the injured child, but the entire family. An injured child’s parents are also entitled to compensation for the child’s past, present, and future medical expenses. Depending on the seriousness of the child’s injuries, the cost of the child’s medical care can be significant, and some children are without health insurance. Most parents cannot afford to pay for medical care for their child. This is why parents can sue for their child’s injuries and recover medical expenses associated with those injuries. Receiving compensation, through a personal injury lawsuit, for a child who has a sustained a serious injury can help the child, as well as his or her family, deal with the costs and inconveniences that may arise from a serious injury that could impact the rest of their lives.  These are sad cases that need special attention.

In Florida if a child receives a settlement greater than $15,000.00 a court guardianship will generally need to be set up.  This is one of the services that we provide to families when a minor child receives a settlement.
