INJURY TO CHILDREN
Like adults, children suffer injuries due to the negligence of others. These injuries are frequently caused by unsafe recreational environment. Swimming pools, trampolines, monkey bars, ski lifts, and campgrounds can be dangerous environment for children if they are not adequately maintained.
Children also suffer injuries from products such as defective bicycles, defective gym equipment or defective or unsafe toys. Under the laws of the State of New York, the manufacturer of a product may be held strictly liable for injuries caused by their products. Many toys and other products aimed at children are manufactured in other countries with less rigid safety standards. As a result, New York's product liability laws hold the importers and distributors of such products accountable for defects in their products.
Children love and enjoy animals, especially dogs. Sadly, innocent children are attacked by dogs they thought were friendly, leaving permanent physical and emotional injuries.
Children usually have good safety instincts. However, despite such instincts they may be injured by a car, bus, or truck as a pedestrian or bicyclist. A careful accident reconstruction is frequently required to discover the true circumstances surrounding the accident. Our law firm has experienced accident inverstigators and reconstruction investigators and reconstruction experts who will work hard to determine the facts of your child's accident.
Poor supervision and lack of warning signs are frequent causes of injuries to children. A babysitter who leaves a child alone or a construction site without warning signs and adequate fencing are common factors in injuries suffered by children. A childcare center may be liable for negligent supervision, and the contractor may be found to negligent in failing to safeguard the construction site.
The most heartbreaking cases involving children who suffer an injury due to medical malpractice, the most devastating of which are birth injuries. These cases require a careful examination of the facts and circumstances to determine exactly what went wrong since the medical records often do not tell the entire story.

Because of our many years of experience, our technological capability, and our experts and specialists, we are able to determine the facts of the case, identify the responsible party, and build a strong argument for compensation for your child's injuries.
