Child Injuries in Baton Rouge, LA
Baton Rouge Personal Injury Attorney
It is no secret that children can be far more accident-prone than adults – it is one of the things that makes them so special to the people who care for them. This means that their guardians, parents and supervisors must take extra measures to protect children from themselves. While children may appear to be fearless, they are still fragile and an injury that would be considered small for an adult can be far more painful and damaging to a young child. Witnessing a child suffer injury is one of the most difficult things a person may have to do.
If your child was injured while under the care of someone else or because of someone else's negligence, you can file a personal injury claim on your child's behalf in order to recover compensation to help you help your child recover. This includes injuries that occur while at school, day care or under the care of a babysitter at home.
Defective children's products such as toys, medicine and playgrounds can also cause injuries but the culprit in that case would be the manufacturing company that failed in their duty to make and market a safe product. In that case, a product liability claim would be in order to keep the company accountable for its shortfalls.
Filing a Claim for Children's Injuries in Baton Rouge
Injuries to children can require medical attention that is more expensive and specialized than that which an adult would require. Furthermore, recovery can be more difficult for the little ones and permanent damage will affect them for much longer than it would an adult because they essentially have their entire lives ahead of them.
All of these things are added together when determining an award for your compensation. Your child deserves the best medical care and the opportunity to make a full recovery. Do not let money stand in the way of you providing your child with the means he or she needs to live a full and happy life in spite of their injuries. Let me and my firm, The Layfield Law Firm, LLC help you recover the compensation your family deserve.
