Childhood Injuries in Hollywood and South Florida

Injuries to a child are devastating not just to the minor but to the whole family. Children are especially vulnerable to a variety of injuries, including pool injuries and other devastating harm. When they are affected by serious injuries, children’s development, ability to go to school, and even their very future may be at stake.

If your child has been injured, it’s important to consult with a Hollywood child injury attorney. You need an attorney who is experienced in dealing with childhood injury cases and can pursue fair compensation which not only covers your child’s medical bills but also helps them in the future.

Types of Childhood Injuries

Children can be injured in many ways, including:

  • Amusement park injuries
  • Car accident
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle collisions
  • Falls
  • Sports injuries
  • Swimming pool injuries
  • Dog attacks
  • Birth injuries
  • Medical malpractice harm

These issues can lead to:

  • Fractures
  • Head trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Facial injuries
  • Amputations
  • Crushing injuries
  • Fatalities

Effects of Childhood Injuries

Devastating injuries, such as imputations or brain trauma, can affect a child’s future ability to earn an income. It can also affect the entire trajectory of their life, making it harder for them to study, affecting their self esteem and their relationships, and more.

Children who have suffered a serious facial injury or kids who can no longer move may face a shorter life expectancy and may suffer from depression as well as other issues. They may have a hard time with relationships and their future can be permanently impacted. These types of injuries can also affect family dynamics and can create significant levels of stress for the entire family.

In addition, since children are still growing, injuries can affect their future development. For example, facial scarring can become even more devastating over time as the skin grows and stretches. Amputations may mean that a child needs to replace prosthetics repeatedly over an entire lifetime, which can be expensive as well as upsetting for the child. Rehabilitation and treatment can take a long time, meaning a child misses out on school and educational opportunities.

Compensation

Because of the devastating impact of childhood injuries, it’s important families consult with a Hollywood or Florida personal injury attorney if their child has been injured. An attorney can find all liable parties and can pursue compensation if you have a claim. This way, medical costs, therapy, counselling, tutoring, and other related costs may be covered. If you don’t seek compensation, your insurance may only cover a portion or even none of the injury costs. This could make it harder to properly cover the full costs of a child’s injuries.

When considering the costs of a child’s injuries, it’s also important to consider future costs. Will a child need additional medical care for the rest of their life due to a devastating childhood injury? Without getting fair compensation now, it may be challenging for that child to pay for his or her needed treatment throughout their adulthood. Acting now can help safeguard their future and their future finances.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
