CHILDREN ACCIDENTS AND INSURANCE CLAIMS

Children are much more spontaneous and impulsive than adults, especially smaller children given that they are very unaware of certain dangers. For example, toddlers learning to walk don’t know that steps and stairs are dangerous places for them or that unfamiliar dogs should not be pet or approached. That is why it is the responsibility of those taking care of children to avoid and prevent situations which may lead to children suffering accidents that result in bodily harm or mental trauma. Thus, when adults act negligently or fail to provide safe conditions for children, they may be subject to a personal injury lawsuit to compensate a child’s suffering and any medical expenses stemming from treatment of the injuries. This may also include business operators that welcome and cater to children, such as amusements parks, playhouse, etc..
Some of the most common acts of negligence that result in child accidents involve:
  • Pet owners
  • Toy manufacturers
  • Business operators or employees
  • Amusement park operators
  • Private property owners
  • School officials or faculty
  • Daycare operators or staff
  • Nursery school operators or staff
  • Sports clubs or coaches
  • Healthcare workers
  • Motor vehicle operators
  • Bicycle riders
  • Playground equipment manufacturers
  • Playground maintenance operators
  • Playhouse operators
  • Other parents or adults
The Perazzo Law Firm understands that the above listed are commonly associated with child accidents in Miami, that is why we recommend that parents and guardians act immediately after an accident that result in injury to a child.

DETERMINING FAULT FOR A CHILD ACCIDENT

daycare-lawyer-300x225Sadly, determining fault in cases and accidents involving children can be very complex and only the best child accident lawyers with experience handling accident claims will be able to achieve positive results. In order to determine fault based on negligence or wrongdoing, a personal injury lawyer will act like a detective, seeking clues and discovering information to determine the exact cause of the accident and how it could have been adverted. By asking questions and talking to witnesses, inspecting the accident scene, or seeking information on any elements involved in the accident, a personal injury lawyer will be able to build a case with which to file a lawsuit. That is why, it is vital that parents or legal guardians contact the Perazzo Law Firm immediately after seeking medical care to treat the child’s injuries.

When a child is injured due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another individual or business operator, he or she may be entitled to:

  • Payment of present and future medical expenses
  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Compensation for mental trauma
  • Payment for future losses in the event of disability
  • Payment for funeral expenses in the event of a wrongful death accident

Depending on the type of injury, future medical expenses for a head, neck, or back can range from $100,000  – 150,000 in compensation. This is something to be considered if your child is injured due to the negligence of another.


COMMON TYPES OF INJURIES
Children are full of energy and perilous when it comes to having fun, which makes them more susceptible to accidents and injuries whenever they ride a bike, playing sports, or even when taking a bath. Most accidents in which children get hurt usually include the following:
  • Breaks and fractures
  • Broken teeth
  • Contusions and bruises
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Head injuries
  • Sprains and strains

Any of the above child accident injuries can be considered permanent injuries given that broken bones will never be the same and deep cuts can leave scars. That is why, the Perazzo Law Firm staff of personal injury attorneys remind parents to seek immediate legal advice following a child accident in order to find out about compensation for damages and losses.
