i-injuriestochildrenSerious injuries suffered by children are emotionally devastating. If a child has suffered a serious injury, it is necessary to contact an experienced Los Angeles child injury attorney.

Typically, a case involving an injury to a child captures a unique set of legal issues that covers multiple legal areas, including premises and product liability.

Children can suffer significant injuries in a wide variety of locations and situations including:

  • Day Care Centers
  • Playgrounds
  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Swimming Pools
  • Streets
  • Sidewalks or Crosswalks

Injuries are typically caused by either an unsafe property condition or a failure to properly supervise children in care or recreation centers. This can happen because the facility is understaffed, poorly managed or the staff has not been trained properly on allergy precautions, defective or dangerous toys, or procedures to follow when the children are around animals. Day care centers must also protect children from encountering unprotected entrances or stairwells, contact with toxic chemicals, sharp objects like knives, unsafe furniture that contains splinters, rusty nails or lead paint, dangling window blind cords, recalled children’s toys, cribs and furniture.

If your child’s injuries occurred at a public school facility, there are special time limitations for you to file a claim. It is in your best interest to get an experienced Los Angeles child injury attorney involved at the earliest possible time. Your attorney can investigate the circumstances that led to your child being injured and accurately assess liability.
