Injury to Child

No child should suffer injury.
    But, no matter how careful you might be, your child's safety could still be threatened by the carelessness or negligence of others. Though you may drive carefully and defensively, another person may be speeding, drinking and driving, or breaking traffic laws leading to an accident and significant injury to your child. Though you may childproof your home, a hotel, store, or other public place may contain serious hazards for children. When parents take their children to school or daycare facilities, they trust the teachers and workers there will protect their child from injury. But in too many instances, employees are negligent, employers fail to investigate and supervise their employees, and children become vulnerable to injury.    

Unfortunately, children are more likely to become injured or killed in an accident than adults. They lack the coordination, knowledge, and life experience to avoid dangerous situations such as a deep pool, a busy street, or a dangerous animal. The leading cause of death for children up to the age of 14 is unintended injuries.

  • Car and Truck accidents According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "(i)n 2016, 723 children ages 12 years and younger died in motor vehicle traffic crashes, and more than 128,000 were injured." U.S. Department of Health & Human Services , Child Passenger Safety Data; [cited 2018 September 18] Available at:; Accessed: 07/14/19.
  • School bus accidents School bus driver error, one simple mistake by another driver on the road, a mechanic, or even a school district can lead to a serious school bus accident and multiple injuries or death.
  • Pedestrian and bike accidents Accidents can happen on the safest of residential streets. Teaching a child to cross a street safely or to ride a bicycle safely cannot protect a child when drivers are distracted, inebriated, reckless, or careless.
  • Dog bite accidents When a careless dog owner does not prevent a dog on child attack, a child is more likely to suffer serious dog bite injuries to the neck and face. In many cases, these physical and emotional dog bite scars last a lifetime.
  • Premises liability accidents Property and landowners have legal duty to keep their grounds reasonably safe for others, but some fail to repair hazards, or fail to warn others of potential safety threats. A property owner may neglect to lock a pool area, fail to pen an aggressive dog, or neglect to repair a broken railing.
  • Wrongful Death cases In some cases, the consequences are extreme resulting in the death of a child. Even though there is no amount of compensation that can restore the life of a child, civil statutes obligate the wrongdoer pay damages for medical expense and damages for the loss of love, companionship, services, and support that a child provided to the parents.
