Protect Your Child's Rights with Experienced Child Injury LAWYERs IN Panama City
Children represent the future for a family and when they are injured early in life, the effects of the accident can be devastating. Many opportunities our children may have later on in life can all be taken away in an instant due to another person’s negligence. When parents take their children to school or daycare facilities, do so under the premise that the teachers and workers there will protect their child from injury. Sadly, in some cases the negligent actions taken by these employees cause serious injuries to children.
If your child has been injured as a result of the negligent supervision of another person, contact the expert child injury lawyers here at the law office of Wettermark & Keith, today. Our personal injury attorneys have over thirty years of experience handling child injury cases and have the resources needed to pursue the financial compensation entitled to you and your family after your child is hurt.
CHILD INJURY DATA
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), unintentional injury remains the number one cause of death to children under the age of 14. It is estimated that about 2,800 children die in the United States each year as a result of an accidental injury. Children at play are very susceptible to these accidents with over 275,000 bicycle related injuries reported in 2003 alone. Tragically, a large number of injuries sustained by children in bicycle accidents result in the child suffering a mild to severe traumatic brain injury.
Catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries, burns, and brain injuries can impart lasting complications and limitations to a child. The effects of these injuries can be felt for the rest of the child’s life and can be accompanied by vast medical expenses.
Daycare centers and schools owe a duty of care to the children learning or staying at their facilities. When child supervisors fail to properly monitor children, serious accidents can take place. Other sources of child injuries that our law firm has helped our clients for in the past include:
