Injuries to Children

Serious injuries are terrible for any individual or family to endure but when they happen to our children they become almost unbearable.  There is nothing more heart-wrenching than to see an injured child lying helplessly in a hospital bed suffering from an injury caused by another person’s negligence, recklessness or intentional actions.  Tragically, according to the National Center of Health Statistics (CDC) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents are the leading cause of death for children ages 2 through 14.  The most recent available statistics reveal that an average of 568 children ages 14 and younger are injured car accidents in the United States every day.  An additional 5 children are killed in car accidents every day in this country.

While these statistics are down considerably from ten years ago primarily due to advances in child seats and restraint technology, public awareness and mandatory child restraint laws, any family having to suffer from the loss or injury to a child understands that no amount ofmonetary compensation can undue the years of pain and suffering that result.  Injuries to children are peculiar, not only in their impact on the parents and family unit as a whole, but they are also accompanied by peculiar legal and medical considerations that do not normally arise in cases involving injuries to adults.
