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.

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:
- Daycare facilities
- 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 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.
