Common Causes of Child Injuries

It’s fairly common for children to injure themselves, through rough play or their day-to-day activities. However, not all child injuries are the result of accidents. In fact, many child injuries stem from the neglect or carelessness of supervising adults, product manufacturers, and other parties. Sadly, there are many instances in which a child’s injury is the result of someone else’s negligence.

At Joe Miller Law, Ltd., we understand the frustration and pain a family in Norfolk will likely experience when a child sustains an injury or illness due to someone else’s reckless actions. Fortunately, in these circumstances, the teacher, supervisor, manufacturer, or other party responsible for the injury can likely be held legally accountable, providing the family with much-needed financial compensation.

Neglect and Child Injuries

Many child injuries result from general neglect on the part of an adult who is supposed to be protecting children or a company that is supposed to be making safe products for the child to use or consume. In fact, some of the most common ways in which negligence contributes to children’s injuries and illnesses include:

  • Daycare/school/teacher negligence
  • Drowning / pool accidents
  • Toxic child products / containers
  • Defective child car seats

These types of negligence and unsafe situations can cause serious injury to your child, leaving him or her with pain and your family with emotional trauma and financial obligations.
