Child Injury Lawyer New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia
We at the Locks Law Firm believe that children are incredibly valuable members of our society, and it is important to create environments where children can safely learn and play. Loving parents do their best to keep their children safe at all times, but even the most cautious parent must sometimes entrust a child's safety to someone else. When children go to school or attend a summer camp, there are individuals who are responsible for their safety. Occasionally these individuals fail to fulfill their duties, and when they do, children can be seriously injured. At the Locks Law Firm, we consider any neglect of a child's wellbeing that brings harm to a child in Philadelphia, Camden, Cherry Hill, Wilkes-Barre to be unacceptable. A child injury lawyer from the Locks Law Firm offers parents experienced, aggressive representation against the liable parties and an excellent chance of recovering the compensation to which they are entitled.
Possible Child Injury Scenarios
Like adults, children may be hurt in car accidents, as a result of medical malpractice, and in other catastrophic accidents. A number of scenarios, however, tend to be specific to child injury victims. Lawyers from our firm can help your family find justice if your child is injured in any of these ways:
- School bus accidents: Children may be injured if a school bus crashes. Because school buses typically lack seatbelts, the children who ride in them may sustain serious injuries.
- Accidents on the playground: Playgrounds should be safe places for recreation, but insufficient supervision, poorly maintained playground equipment, and other hazards often lead to unnecessary injuries. Falls onto hard surfaces are the most common cause of serious injury in playgrounds. Failure to provide a forgiving surface under playground equipment from which children could fall is often negligent and could give rise to liability.
- Accidents at camp: Summer camps should afford children a valuable opportunity to learn new skills and spend time outdoors. However, poor management and supervision, dangerous activities, inadequate staffing or staff training, and poorly maintained facilities may lead to preventable injuries.
- Accidents in childcare: Babysitters and childcare professionals are responsible for the safety of the children they supervise. Sometimes, though, they fail to exercise due care, and children get hurt.
