Child Injuries

Injuries to Children

The attorneys at Altman & Altman represent the families of injured children hurt through a variety of different mechanisms of injury, from those caused by defective car seats or cribs to injuries sustained by dog bites. Here at Altman & Altman, we understand that children are precious but also fragile. Children are therefore far more susceptible to injuries than older and more experienced adolescents or adults. Our devoted and caring team of personal injury lawyers deals with all sorts of child injury cases, including:

  • Amusement Park Injuries
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Birth Injury
  • Car Seat Injuries
  • Child Accidents and Injuries
  • Child Brain Injuries
  • Child Dog Bites
  • Crib Injuries
  • Daycare Accidents and Injuries
  • Drowning Accidents and Injuries
  • Playground Accidents and Injuries
  • School Bus Accidents
  • Toy Injuries

Not only are injuries involving children more likely to take place, but they also tend to have more severe and prolonged effects, both physically and mentally. If your child has been injured or died by the means of any of the above, the attorneys at Altman & Altman are here to help.

Amusement Park Injury Lawyers

Although typically a place of family fun and bonding, amusement parks can sometimes be dangerous, especially for youngsters. Amusement park injuries and deaths can be caused by several factors, from faulty machinery to sheer carelessness of park workers. These injuries can be debilitating and cause immense suffering to families and children affected by them. Regardless of the reason your child was injured, our dedicated team of attorneys will fight for justice for your child.

Bicycle Accident Lawyers

One of the first memories many children have is learning how to ride a bike. Unforeseeable accidents can occur, however, that can cause these memories to change forever. Injuries sustained from bicycles can occur due to flaws in bicycles or safety equipment (such as helmets), neglecting to properly maintain bike paths, or negligent drivers. Our attorneys will work to achieve justice for your child regardless of the method of their bicycle accident injury.

Car Seat Injury Lawyers

Car seats are designed to protect your children, but many times these devices are recalled for significant defects in their design. Defective car seats that actually worsen injuries sustained from a car accident are a pressing reason to seek compensation. The car seat manufacturer and potentially others can be held liable for your child’s injuries. Our team understands the laws pertaining to car seat accidents and will actively apply their knowledge to achieve the compensation your family is entitled.

Child Brain Injury Lawyers

Children can sustain injuries to the brain even before birth. A number of accidents can occur resulting in severe trauma to the brain, which is especially traumatic on the developing brain of children. Often times, it is incredibly difficult and complex to unravel how and when a child was injured in which trauma was sustained to the brain. This requires legal representation by specialized attorneys, such as those found at Altman & Altman, who have experience with such cases.

Child Dog Bite Injury Lawyers

Most people, especially children, view dogs as friendly pets that love to lick and play. Many forget that they are animals and can react to people they interpret as threatening by attacking or biting them. Some dog bites can leave terrible scars or deformities, and some can even be fatal. Our attorneys will accept your case with care and assure your child receives the respect that he or she deserves.

Crib Injury Lawyers

For many parents, a crib is one of the first things they buy in preparation for their new child. Even parents who spend hours comparing and testing different brands and models of cribs can be the victims of crib related injuries or deaths. Injuries or deaths that occur in cribs can be due to unreliable cribs, negligence of caretakers, or the result of a child having access to toys while he or she is in the crib. No matter the cause, our attorneys will assure that whoever is responsible for the injuries to your child, whether it is the manufacturers of the crib or a careless babysitter, will be held accountable.

Daycare Injury Lawyers

Parents send their children to day care with the assumption that their children will be well taken care of under trained and experienced staff. Parents never think that it would be possible for their children to be seriously injured or die under the careful watch of qualified caretakers. When these injuries are determined to be the result of caretaker negligence, the individual caretaker and the daycare facility may be liable for your child’s injuries or death. Our attorneys understand liability laws and will fight for justice for your child.

Drowning Injury Lawyers

Not all drowning incidents result in fatalities, but nonfatal drownings can be just as, or even more, devastating than fatal cases due to the permanent damage that can be sustained from lack of oxygen to the brain during a drowning. Whether your child was injured or died as the outcome of a drowning in an establishment’s pool, owners of the establishment may be held accountable for their negligence in failing to take precautions to avert children from having access to the water. Our lawyers have experience with drowning cases and understand the laws of liability in order to assure you and your family are compensated for your suffering.

Playground Injury Lawyers

Abnormal playground injuries, unlike a scraped knee or bruised elbow, are typically due to some kind of negligence. If your child was injured while playing on a playground, the injuries could potentially be caused by lack of maintenance of the playground structure or improperly installed equipment. These injuries can potentially be severe and life altering. If you believe your child has been severely injured on a playground due to negligence of some kind, contact the attorneys at Altman & Altman. Their experience and dedication will aid in their action for justice for your child’s injuries and will help prevent other accidents from occurring again.

School Bus Accident Lawyers

School bus accidents can be caused by negligence of bus drivers, by other drivers on the road, or by mechanical or structural defects in the bus. Bus companies may also be liable if they are found to have employed a negligent driver responsible for the injury or death of a child. Failing to properly maintain the bus can also cause injury in which the maintenance company or the bus company may be found liable. You may be entitled to substantial compensation if your child was injured in a school bus accident due to someone else’s carelessness. Contact the attorneys at Altman & Altman to learn what your options are in pursuing your case.

Toy Injury Lawyers

Although children’s toys have to complete an elaborate process of passing several federal regulations before they are publically sold in stores, far too often these “safe” toys can cause serious injury or death in children. This can be devastating for families as a toy that was supposed to bring so much joy, ended up bringing so much suffering. Our attorneys are dedicated to holding negligent toy manufacturers liable for injuries and deaths that resulted from their products. We will fight for you child as if it were our own child who was affected by the carelessness of toy companies.
