Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Child Injury LawyerOur children are the most precious beings in the world. For those of us who have children, it should come as no surprise that most parents will do almost anything to uphold the wellbeing of their sons and daughters. We do everything we can in our power to ensure our children can move safely through the world. However, every year, millions of children are injured as a result of somebody else. Children are the most vulnerable demographic in the country when it comes to suffering from injuries, especially because a lot of the time they are supposed to be under the supervision of adults. When we drop our children off at school, or give them a new toy, we expect that they will not be harmed.

When somebody else puts your child in danger as a result of their own misconduct, it can be devastating. In fact, a child injury, legally speaking, refers to when a child suffers from an injury — or in extreme cases wrongful death — as a direct result of somebody else’s negligence or misconduct. If you or someone you know believes their child may have suffered from a child injury which was caused by somebody else’s actions, it may be in your best interest to seek out professional legal counsel in order to help you receive the compensation for your child’s injuries and be there for your child.

What are ways my child can be injured?

There are endless ways children can get injured. That being said, in order to have the grounds for a child injury lawsuit, you must be able to prove that your child suffered an injury as a result of somebody else’s actions. Whether it be your child drowning as a result of a negligent lifeguard or your child choking on the newest toy they got, when another party is at fault for your child’s injuries, it is important to hold them accountable. Some of the more common ways children suffer from injuries are:

  • Defective toys
  • Birth injuries
  • Drowning
  • Attacks by dogs and other animals
  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bike accidents
  • Faulty drugs
  • Slip and fall
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Food poisoning
  • Choking
  • Playground injuries

What are some of the type of injuries that can result?

Every case is different. Injuries can range from a simple bruise to the extreme of death. The common types of injuries that we see in many cases include:

  • Bruises and abrasions
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Brain trauma
  • Head injuries
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Deep tares in the skin tissue
  • Internal bleeding
  • Death

No matter what the injury, it is important that you have someone standing by your side and helping you through the process of holding someone accountable for your child’s injuries. You shouldn’t have to stress over complex legal paperwork, mounting medical bills, and making your child feel safe again.

If you or someone you know has a child that has suffered from a child injury, do not hesitate to reach out to Cohen & Cohen and we will be more than happy to set you up with a skilled child injury lawyer on our team.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
