Injuries to Children
Personal Injury Representation for San Diego Families
Children depend on adults, parents, or guardians to protect them, shelter them from dangerous environments, and provide security. In the event of a child injury or accident, parents can file claims against the person or entity that caused wrongful injury. With the help of a skilled San Diego personal injury lawyer you can pursue compensation for damages sustained by your child in an accident or tragic incident.
At the Law Offices of Roy Kohler, I understand that child injury accident claims can be particularly challenging and emotionally exhausting for parents. Seeing their child sustain injuries, life-threatening traumas, or worse, wrongful death, can cause physical, emotional, and financial devastation that may never diminish or disappear. Due to the sensitive nature of child injury accident claims, having a child injury attorney can navigate through the complexities of the court system and demonstrate compassion and personal care for you can mean the difference between inadequate and just compensation.
Types of Childhood Injury
Today, children and adolescents are at a higher risk of injury than ever before. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), trauma is one of the leading causes of death for children over one year old. Each year, more than 14,000,000 children are injured due to carelessness, and a shocking 6,000 children die from accidental injury. Yet, thousands of children are injured everyday due to:
- Car accidents (especially due to drunk driving)
- Burn injuries
- Playground injuries;
- Poisoning due to unsafe household chemicals
- Slip and fall injuries
- Swimming pool accidents, including drowning
- Dog bites or attacks
- Medical malpractice
- Sexual molestation
At the Law Offices of Roy Kohler, I understand how precious our children are. Children are the bright futures of tomorrow. Some people may blame these skyrocketing statistics on the rise of technology even may blame parents for allowing their children to be under the care of negligent caregivers. I do not. As your San Diego child injury attorney, I am committed to proving your case for compensation so that the wrongful party is appropriately held liable. If your child has been injured as a result of negligence, contact my firm's San Diego personal injury lawyer immediately.
