San Pedro Child Injury Lawyers

Seeing a child injured in an accident is a parent’s worst fear. At Farahi Law Firm, our San Pedro child injury lawyers understand the emotional distress families go through, during this difficult time. Our compassionate child injury lawyers know the responsibility and faith parents entrust to us to handle their child’s case. We handle all our cases with the utmost care.

The safety of the children in our community is of paramount importance. This is why we take great lengths to hold the responsible party accountable for their negligent actions.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that unintentional injuries were the leading cause of death among children ages 0-14 in the United States.

Our experienced team of child injury attorneys treats the responsibility of representing accident victims with absolute respect. We provide our clients with the aggressive representation they need to win their compensation claim. An injury should not hinder nor determine the future of our children. And we are committed to helping them in any way we can.

Common Types of Child Injury Cases

Although we try to keep our children out of harm’s way, some accidents are out of our hands. Knowing the conditions in which the child was injured will help you in your quest to seek justice if any harm comes to them. Our San Pedro child injury lawyers at Farahi Law Firm, APC, have found that the bulk of the cases of child injuries that we handle are linked to the following types of accidents:

Slip & Falls 

These types of accidents are common among very playful children. Kids may slip and fall as they learn and explore, and this is usually not a cause for alarm. But depending on the circumstances, some slip and fall accidents can be more dangerous. These types of accidents may lead to head injuries which can greatly affect a child’s growth and development. 

Automobile Accidents

According to the CDC, motor vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes of child and teen fatalities. In a report by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), over 600 children below the age of thirteen were involved in fatal accidents in 2020. 

Traumatic Brain Injuries

This type of injury may affect children differently than they do adults. Depending on the severity of the injury, the symptoms of a brain injury may range from mild symptoms such as headaches, nausea, or light sensitivity to more severe symptoms such as seizures, loss of coordination, and moodiness. The Mayo Clinic reports that young child victims of traumatic brain injuries may also experience a change in eating habits, a change in the ability to pay attention, and a loss of interest in their favorite toys or activities. 

School Bus Accidents

School bus accidents could lead to serious injuries due to their lack of seatbelts, airbags, and proper seats. 

Bicycle Accidents

Biking is a common recreational activity for children. Not only is it environmentally friendly, but it is a fun form of exercise that helps children learn how to socialize. Despite its many positive factors, children are more prone to being hit by distracted drivers. This may be due to their size and lack of awareness.

Pedestrian Accidents

Although cities have made more of an effort to keep pedestrians safer, children are still prone to these accidents. The Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) report that one in five children under the age of 15 involved in motor vehicle crashes were pedestrians. 

Birth Injuries

Birth injuries can happen at any time during or near birth. The most common include lack of oxygen (birth asphyxia), trauma to the baby’s head or body, and infection from complications.

Playground Injuries

Improperly maintained playground equipment or improper mounting can lead to serious accidents and injuries. In these cases, the school district, local government, manufacturer, or employee responsible for watching over your child may be held liable for their injuries. 

Toy-Related Injuries

Products with manufacturing defects or those with a lack of warning could cause choking hazards. Especially for small, curious children who have the tendency to put things in their mouths. If your child sustained an injury due to a manufacturing defect, you may file an insurance claim against the manufacturer.

Swimming Pool Accidents

Although extremely enjoyable, swimming pool fun can quickly turn disastrous. Swimming pool owners must ensure that they provide a safe environment for both children and adults. Some of the most common injuries a child may sustain from a swimming pool accident are drowning, slips, and falls.

Dog Bites

Due to their playful nature, children may be more susceptible to dog bite attacks. Children do not have the ability to read the actions of an animal correctly and may miss out on clear signs that could signify a dog bite. 

Daycare Negligence, Child Abuse, and Neglect

Daycare negligence and child abuse can lead to a variety of accidents and injuries. It is crucial that you take legal actions to hold the responsible parties accountable. 

Amusement Park Accidents

Despite the fun environment, faulty equipment and negligent staff can cause severe accidents in an amusement park.

These types of accidents can lead to severe injuries that could directly affect your child’s quality of life. It is important to file an accident claim to give them the justice they deserve by gaining the financial compensation necessary for medical care, lost time at school, and other damages caused by the responsible party.

Steps to Take When Your Child Has Been Injured

The following steps will not only ensure your child has a quick and successful recovery, but these steps will also help provide evidence to hold the negligent party accountable for their actions, giving you a stronger personal injury claim.

Seek Urgent Medical Attention

Take your child to the hospital as quickly as possible. Even if you suspect your child might have only sustained minor injuries. Always keep any medical records or medical bills that come from treatment. These will serve as evidence against the party at fault.

Document the Accident Details

Write down as many details about the incident as you can. Documenting the accident circumstances will also help your case. Remember to take pictures of both the accident site and your child’s injuries. 

Report the Incident

Report the incident to the relevant authorities. If the accident happened at school, notify the principal or supervisor, and if your child was injured due to a car accident, you should file a police report.

Get in touch with a Personal Injury Attorney 

Accident claims regarding child injury can be extremely challenging. Oftentimes an insurance company will try to lowball you and trick you into taking an unfair settlement offer. This is why you must seek the services of a personal injury lawyer experienced in handling child injury cases to increase your chances of earning the maximum compensation that you and your child rightfully deserve.

What Compensation Can You Recover in a Child Injury Claim?

In the case of a child injury, more than one party can be held liable depending on the circumstances of the accident. These parties may include:

  • The driver at fault in a car or motorcycle accident
  • The manufacturer of an unsafe toy or defective product
  • School or daycare facility that was negligent in providing proper supervision or duty of care
  • The property owner and managers of the premises where an accident involving the child happened

As a parent, your number one priority will be your child’s healthy recovery. As their medical treatment is likely to be costly, you must obtain an experienced injury lawyer to handle legal matters and increase your chances of recovering fair compensation. As an accident victim, your child may be eligible for the following compensatory damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Home care costs
  • Household and vehicle modifications
  • Cost of special schools or educational programs
  • Physical therapy
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • And more
