What Are Typical Childhood Injuries?

What Are Typical Childhood Injuries? Some of the most common child 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 among the cases coming through the doors of Illinois courthouses are stories of children’s injuries. Normally, we see them arise in a few contexts: adults or other kids take affirmative action to wrongfully batter, assault, or imprison a child; people accidentally injure children in what later can be deemed to be negligent behavior; doctors or other medical professionals fail to give the child the care that he or she deserves; a child’s toys malfunction and injure him or her. The list of possibilities goes on and on and unfortunately so for the curious child. If your child is 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. This is what we specialize in especially for children that have been the victim of medical malpractice, negligence, and products liability. We have seen countless accidents and have understand how to apply Illinois laws and Chicago court rules in order 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 certain duty or level of care, that the defendant broke that obligations, and that the breach caused you certain injuries and damages. This effort implicates a serious amount of factual investigation, legal research, and persuasion skills. We can offer all of you these plus the complete dedication that comes from truly caring about injured children.

Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld.
★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
