Child Injury Laws
Depending on your child’s injuries and the circumstances of the accident, there may be several parties liable for your child’s accident.
For example, a doctor, nursing staff, or hospital may be liable for the injuries in cases of medical malpractice.
In other circumstances, a property or homeowner who did not lawfully restrict access to a pool may be liable.
There are many other circumstances under which your child sustained injuries or died where specific parties can be liable.
Even in cases where you share fault for the accident, you may be able to recover money for your damages.

Common Causes of Child Injuries
Because of their curious nature, children are more prone to being injured while playing and exploring.
Other times, it is the negligence or specific action of others which cause a child harm.
Some of the most common causes of child injuries include:
- Abuse (by daycare staff, for example)
- Poor medical treatment or wrong diagnosis
- Failure to secure a pool area
- Exposure to fires or chemicals
- Faulty or hazardous playground equipment
- Vehicular traffic
Seeing your child get seriously hurt is among a parent’s biggest fears. If your child is suffering, we want to help.

The Statute of Limitations for Child Injuries
While children cannot file a lawsuit by themselves, an adult may do so on their behalf. Even so, there are laws that limit the time in which one may file a lawsuit to recover financial compensation.
In Florida, there is a four-year window when seeking to recover financial losses for cases resulting from negligence.
If your child’s accident resulted in his or her passing, you have two years from the time of death to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Attempting to file a lawsuit on behalf of your child after the deadline in the Statute of Limitations will result in your case’s dismissal.
There more specific laws regarding the time limits, with special consideration for when the child turns 18 years of age.
To learn more the time constraints you may face for your case, call our firm as soon as possible.
