BOCA RATON CHILD INJURY LAWYER
Pursuing Compensation and on Behalf of Children Injured in Accidents Caused by Others
No parent ever wants to see his or her child in pain. Consequently, there are a few things that a parent fears more than watching his or her child suffer a serious injury in an accident. This is especially true when the child is injured as a result of the negligence or carelessness of someone else.
The owners of pools, play equipment, and other areas that children frequent are responsible for making sure that their properties are in a safe condition at all times. They are also, in many cases, responsible for keeping an eye on children — most especially at public swimming pools. If your child’s injuries can be traced to the careless, reckless, or negligent contact of someone else, you might be in a position to pursue monetary compensation on behalf of your child.
Even though money is incapable of fully compensating for a child’s injury – especially a permanent one – monetary compensation can help to bring a sense of finality and justice to your child’s injury case. The experienced Boca Raton child injury lawyers at Demand the Limits can help you and your child pursue much-needed monetary compensation that resulted from the negligence of another.
Duty of Care Owed to Children
When children are in a public place or invited onto property, the property owner owes them a duty of care. Specifically, property owners are responsible for making sure that their properties are maintained in a safe and reasonable condition at all times and that they are free from hazards and other defects. If the property owner is aware of a defect or hazard, then he or she must warn about the condition or correct it within a reasonable period of time.
If the child accident victim can demonstrate that the accident and injuries resulted from negligence on the part of the property owner, then monetary compensation in the form of damages might be obtainable.
In addition, some child injuries happen because products are not marked properly and do not contain the necessary warnings – including choking hazards that might exist with product use. If a child injury results from a defective warning, that a claim for damages could potentially be filed against the product manufacturer or distributor.
