Parents feel the pain of their children and there are few things worse than watching your own child suffer due to the negligent act of another. An accident can easily turn your child’s life around and require a lifetime of medical care to treat properly. The Chicago Injury Center is a law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of those who have experienced injuries that could have easily been prevented.
Types of Child Injuries
No two injuries are the same and children are often unable to reconstruct the events surrounding an incident as well as an adult may be able to. A thorough investigation of the details may reveal whether another person or party is responsible— entitling you to compensation in the amount of medical costs and pain and suffering. A child injury lawyer may be able to help determine the exact cause of an injury and whether negligence or malpractice had a part. Typical child injury cases include the following.
- Birth injury caused by medical malpractice that may result in permanent brain damage
- Daycare accidents or abuse
- Dog attacks
- Cerebral palsy
- Carnival ride accidents
- Foster care abuse
- Injury sustained by defective products
- Car or truck accidents
- Drowning or swimming injuries
- Sexual abuse or trauma
- Wrongful death
