Some of the most common childhood injuries arise from sports accidents, vehicle crashes, drowning, suffocating, poisoning, burns, and falls. Some of these can lead to a lawsuit while others cannot. The difference lies in the circumstances of the event and the fault of the parties.
How do Children Get Hurt?
All too often, children are the victims of violence, accident, or malpractice. Littered with the cases filed Illinois courthouses are stories involving children with severe injuries. These cases involve wrongful batter, assault, and child imprisonment. Some lawsuits include people who accidentally injure children in what later was deemed to be negligent behavior and doctors or other medical professionals who fail to give the child the care that he or she deserves. Other cases are based on product liability when a child's toys malfunction and injure him or her. If your child was injured by someone else or something you bought, contact our office. We can help you understand if someone or some entity is responsible for the injuries and damages that your kid sustained.
How do I Know if my Child Has a Personal Injury Claim?
There is a distinct difference between an accident and a tort. The latter implies legal culpability. It can take some effort to discern and demonstrate that someone harmed you in such a way that he or she should be compelled to reimburse you for your damages. Our law firm specializes in injury cases involving children who have been victims of medical malpractice, negligence, and products liability. Our attorneys have handled countless accident cases and understand how to apply Illinois laws, and Chicago court rules to obtain the compensation that our clients deserve. Typically, whatever of these general causes of action you bring, you will have to show that the defendant owed you a particular duty or level of care, that the defendant broke that obligations, and that the breach caused your specific injuries and damages. Our effort to resolve your case involves a comprehensive factual investigation, legal research, and persuasion skills. We can assist you in your case against those that caused you harm. Our firm will postpone payment of all fees until we have successfully resolved your case through a negotiated out of court settlement or jury trial award.
