Injuries to Children

Seeing your child in pain is overwhelming and almost unbearable. You would trade places with your child if you could to protect your child from the pain. When your child is injured, your first concern is for your child and your child’s health. However, at some point, most parents begin to investigate how their child was injured.

When the accident was preventable due to negligent acts, parents need to consult with an experienced Sacramento personal injury attorney immediately. An attorney can help protect the rights of the child and the rights of the parents to hold the accountable parties liable for damages.

If your child has been injured, contact the Tiemann Law Firm at (916) 999-9000 for a free case evaluation!

Where Do Children Get Injured?

Children seem to get injured anywhere they go. A child is simply caught up in “life” and rarely thinks about the danger that may wait ahead. It is up to adults to watch out for children at all times.  Some common places where we see children being injured include:

  • School
  • Daycare facilities
  • Playgrounds
  • Playing sports
  • Summer camps
  • Nursery schools
  • School buses
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Riding bicycles
  • As pedestrians
  • Amusement parks

An accident can happen in a mere second. It is the responsibility of the owners and/or adults supervising the children to ensure the premises are safe. Sometimes an accident is completely unavoidable; however, when your child is injured due to a careless, negligent, or reckless act, you and your child may be entitled to receive compensation from the liable party or parties.

Defective Products

Defective products are another common way children are injured. The recall of the self-balancing scooters/hoverboards that were so popular this past holiday season is all over the news. The hoverboards pose the risk of serious injury because they can overheat.  If you have a hoverboard, visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website to find out what you need to do.

Each year thousands of children are injured by household products, baby furniture, car seats, bicycle helmets, flotation devices, trampolines, and toys.

If your child is injured by a defective product, you and your child may be entitled to receive compensation from one or more parties. Responsible parties may include the designer, manufacturer, distributor, and seller. An experienced personal injury attorney can help sort out the facts to identify the responsible party or parties to maximize the compensation your child receives for his or her injuries.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
