Special Factors when Dealing with Injuries to Children
Injuries that occur to a still-developing body or brain have far different consequences than the same injuries to an adult, because of the effects they can have on future development. Additionally, being of a smaller size, children are more apt to suffer more traumatic injuries in the same car accident or other incident as adults. The younger children are, the less able they are to protect themselves in the moment, to have the developed reflexes to react quickly enough or to appreciate the danger and know what to do to react appropriately.
Our experience representing injury victims with brain injuries and other catastrophic injuries gives us the understanding and ability to address the special needs children with similar injuries face over the course of a lifetime. Besides the different nature and extent of injuries to children, the rules which apply when minors are involved are often different. For instance, Florida laws on comparative negligence may differ when applied to children of a certain age. It takes a knowledgeable and experienced attorney to be aware of these nuances and apply the law correctly to the facts of each case. We help children injured in any type of accident, including:
- School and Playground Accidents
- Swimming and Boating Accidents
- Car Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Attractive Nuisance
- Lack of Adequate Supervision
