When a child suffers a severe injury, the entire family is traumatized. If your child has fallen victim to such an injury, you may well feel overwhelmed in the aftermath—consumed with comforting the child, working, taking care of other family members, and paying for the medical bills and other related costs. The legal aspect of the injury is not likely to be your main concern. However, if your child was injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional act, or by the use of a defective product, you may be able to pursue compensation on your child’s behalf.
Unfortunately, children are frequently the victims of injuries related to playgrounds and pools, exposure to toxic substances (such as lead), or injuries caused by defective products such as toys or cribs. Children may also suffer birth injuries or other types of harm as a result of medical malpractice. Following such incidents, the parents of an injured child would benefit from the knowledge and advocacy skills of an experienced group of personal injury attorneys.
The Scranton-based attorneys of Needle Law Firm are ready to use their resources, knowledge, and dedication to advocate for the interests of children injured by negligent acts or by the use of defective products throughout the counties of Lackawanna, Susquehanna, Monroe, or Honesdale. We understand that civil law aims to make those who are harmed by others “whole” again, to the extent that that can be achieved through financial means. While no amount of money can erase the trauma caused by a child’s severe injury, compensation may cover medical bills as well as the costs of long-term therapies and care that may be required to give injured children the quality of life that they deserve. Compensation may also be awarded for the child’s pain and suffering, and more, depending on the circumstances surrounding the injury.
