After graduation, I worked for two years in a large litigation firm in New York City. At this camp, groups of kids would go on five-day adventures every week, and then we would return to camp for the weekends. Over the next few months, I continued my treatment, but as the pain and stiffness in my neck and upper back improved, the left lower back pain continued to worsen. To this day, my lower back continues to flare up after strenuous activity, but the flare-ups eventually resolve, and I am able to live the life I want to live and be an active father to my young son.Read More
If your child has been seriously injured because of someone else's negligence, the combination of feelings of grief at the tragic event can be amplified by those of betrayal and deep anger. When we send our children to school, day care centers, nurseries and to visit friends, we understandably expect they will be cared for. All too many children are tragically injured because of carelessness in these settings.
Families should be afforded all resources to heal as best as possible. You can file for a compensation claim if your child has been injured on/due to:
- School buses
- Field trips
- Child sexual abuse
- Day care centers
We hope that our children never fall victim to serious accidents or injuries. Unfortunately, negligent individuals, property owners, and companies cause thousands of children to suffer fatal injuries each year in the United States. The livelihood and well-being of our most vulnerable population is often taken for granted for the sake of turning a profit, neglecting proper safety procedures and protocols in the process.
Taking Action To Assert Your Rights: Parents should not have to fear for their child’s safety when on the roadways, in the hospital, or on another person’s property. When the unthinkable happens to your child, you need a personal injury lawyer with the legal resources and experienced team of legal professionals to handle your case.
If you decide to hire a lawyer, he will be able to survey through this list and add the items that fit with your case. This will aid in the personal injury calculation and setting the right amount of money. Our child injury lawyers will bring their extensive experience and expertise to allow in the pursuit of justice for you and your child.
