Child Injury Lawyers San Diego
The injury or death of a child is among the most devastating tragedies a family can endure. Our San Diego child injury lawyers are dedicated to keeping our children safe by holding schools, manufacturers, and operators of amusement activities responsible for the injuries that their negligence causes.
At the Law Offices of Howard A. Kitay, we take special care in working with children and families who are dealing with a personal injury or wrongful death claim. We understand that no amount of money can provide solace or compensation for the serious injury or death of a child. However, we also understand that failure to act in the immediate aftermath of an accident can severely limit a family’s ability to collect damages. Our firm will work to ensure the resources are available to provide a child with the proper medical care or to permit a family to pick up the pieces and begin to rebuild their life.
Our San Diego child injury lawyers have access to the resources necessary to aggressively investigate and prosecute your claim, including access to other professionals in the fields of law, medicine, investigation, and insurance. Together, our winning team builds compelling cases capable of winning the monetary damages families need to ensure that their injured child receives ongoing medical care, has the funds required to meet future needs, and receives compensation for their pain and suffering.
Some common types of childhood accidents include:
- Birth injuries
- Cars and other motor vehicle accidents
- Burn injuries
- Slip and falls
- Playground equipment
- Ingestion of household products
- Household fires
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Swimming related accidents
- Spinal injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Auto accidents
- Premises liability
- Wrongful death cases
- Child molestation, sex abuse
- Defective and unsafe products
- Birth trauma injuries
- Dog bites
Unfortunately, sometimes these injuries can even lead to death. The CDC estimates that over 9,000 children are killed each year as a result of unintentional injury, that is over 25 children every single day.
Though most children’s injuries are not preventable, or at least not caused by any adult’s or corporations neglect, some of these injuries can be prevented if the owner of the property or the adult or corporation responsible for the injury had taken appropriate precautions. In these cases, the child’s parents can bring a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible parties in which compensation is sought to pay for the costs of treatment, associated losses, pain and emotional trauma to the child and the parents as a direct result of the preventable injury.
Because establishing negligence and liability can be quite complex in these situations, it is recommended that individuals wishing to pursue compensation for their child’s injury consult with an experienced San Diego child injury attorney with extensive experience in this field.
