Georgia Child Injury Lawyer
Has Your Child Been Injured?
Serious injuries and wrongful deaths involving young children make up parents’ worst nightmares. Often, if children suffer injuries in such accidents, someone is liable. If a person or organization is negligent in a way that causes a child injury, they should be held fully accountable to make sure they never allow such an accident to occur again.
The lawyers of Brown & Scoccimaro, P.C. are devoted to helping parents obtain justice for their children’s injuries. We take all injury cases on contingency, meaning that we only charge a fee once financial compensation is obtained by settlement or judgment. Contact our lawyers for a free initial consultation.
Common Child Injuries
There are certain types of accidents that frequently befall small children. Under the law, any child under nine years old can not be considered even partially at fault for an accident. Our lawyers have spent more than 28 years helping thousands of victims of personal injury; we can help anyone who has seen their small child or infant suffer from:
- Dangerous toys
- Car seat injury
- Pit bull attacks and other dog bites
- Child drowning or other swimming pool accident
- Trampoline accident
- Playground equipment accident
- Fire ants
- Day care negligence
- Child head injury
These are only a few dangerous products or situations that can injure and kill children. Many more are listed on the Web site for the Consumer Products Safety Commission, a federal agency that informs the public about defective toys and products. Our lawyers have an extensive practice taking on any company responsible for a dangerous product.
Georgia Child Injury FAQs
Who should I contact after my child is injured?
First, contact 911 or seek medical attention. Your child’s pediatrician should always be contacted.
What if I think the injury was partly my child's fault?
There are many possible causes for an accident. Your child’s actions and the actions or negligence of others are compared to determine how much responsibility each party owes and then your financial damages are awarded based upon how much each party contributed to your child’s injury. Talk to a lawyer who can expertly investigate and evaluate your case.
