When a child is injured as a result of someone else’s negligence or reckless behavior, their injuries affect both them and their parents or guardians, as well as the rest of the family. The financial losses may include medical bills or ongoing care if the child becomes disabled. The entire family may suffer emotionally or have to adjust to a new way of life.

Whether at school, in the neighborhood, or in the community, children are vulnerable to accidents simply because of their age, size, and lack of development. If you believe that your child was injured as a result of negligence or reckless actions, we can look into your case. Our lawyers can uncover the facts, identify the at-fault party, and seek compensation for your damages.
Reasons to Hire an Attorney
In a child injury case, you may not know what steps to take or how to submit a claim. Also, in child injury cases, statutes of limitations under Florida Statutes section 95.11 are different than in an adult personal injury case. A Melbourne Child Injury Lawyer can help you in the following ways:
Establish Fault and Liability
To win your case, our lawyers have to prove that another party was responsible for your child’s injury. Our legal team can gather evidence that substantiates your claim, such as eyewitnesses, medical records, accident reports, photos, videos, or expert witnesses.
Calculate Your Damages
The majority of damages in a child injury case involve emergency medical care, specialized services, or long-term care if they become disabled. We can gather all medical records and other documents to determine the total amount of past and future costs.
If you or your spouse had to miss work to care for your child, you might be able to recover your lost wages, bonuses, tips, or other forms of income. We can work with your employer to determine how much total income you may be entitled to recover.
Emotional or Physical Suffering
For children, the consequences of an accident are far more than just the injury. They may be traumatized emotionally and need some form of counseling. They may also have to endure ongoing pain for a longer period. You may be able to account for pain and suffering as a part of your child injury claim.
