Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Toy Injury Law Firm MarylandNo matter how much a parent or guardian monitors a child’s play and only provides them with products to play with that are supposed to be safe for a child to use, many families in Maryland and the surrounding states are looking for a good toy injury law firm Maryland parents and guardians can rely on.

There are few things more difficult for parents and guardians, than when their child gets injured. When a child dies, many families never really recover from this tragedy. When a child’s injury or death could have been prevented had it not been for one or more person’s negligence, the feelings of anger, guilt, frustration, and sadness can be positively overwhelming.

Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury claims typically stem from when an innocent person is injured because of someone else’s negligence (or malice or reckless behavior). Negligence is a term that is used to describe the failure of someone to use reasonable care. When a person or party fails to use reasonable care, and their failure to do this results in an innocent person being injured or dying, the injured victim and/or their family may be entitled to compensation.

Personal Injury Claims and Children

While the information in this article is intended as a general overview for parents and families of children who were injured by using a dangerous toy, it is not legal advice in any way. To learn more about the specifics of personal injury claims and children, a good place to start is with a reputable toy injury law firm Maryland families recommend.

Just like adults, children have legal rights. While personal injury claims for minor children and adults are similar, a distinguishing factor between them is that an adult personal injury claim may hold the adult partially responsible for their injury whereas this would not typically be done for a child. In a personal injury claim for an adult, both the at-fault individual or party whose negligence caused the victim’s injury AND the victim’s own negligence may be considered to be responsible for the victim’s injury. If the injured victim failed to act in a way that a reasonable adult would be expected to act in a similar situation, the victim would be found to be partially at fault for contributory negligence.

Children on the other hand are not typically assigned contributory negligence because a child is not usually expected to act in the same way a reasonable adult would act. This is because a child’s cognizance is still developing. A child’s age, physical and mental development, maturity and experience is not that of an adult’s and they are thus not responsible for behaving the way a reasonable adult would be expected to behave.

Who is to Blame for a Faulty or Malfunctioning Toy?

When a child is injured by using a defective or malfunctioning toy, one or more of the parties responsible for making the product available to consumers may be liable for the child’s injury. These liable parties may include but are not limited to:

  • Designers
  • Engineers
  • Manufacturers
  • Distributors
  • Sellers

When someone is injured because of somebody else’s negligence, he or she may be entitled to compensation. This is no different for a child except that when a minor receives monetary compensation for an injury, it is typically given to the family or put in a trust, and the money is meant to only be used for the child’s care and well-being.

If you are in the awful situation of seeing your innocent child suffering because of injuries that are the result of someone else’s negligence, it may be in your best interest to discuss your child’s rights with a lawyer who is licensed to practice in the state that your child was injured in.

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.
