JASPER, ALABAMA | CHILD INJURY ATTORNEY
Child Injury Lawyer
Children represent the future for a family and when they are injured early in life, the effects of the accident can be devastating. The opportunities our children would have had later on in life can all be taken away in an instant due to another person’s negligence. When parents take their children to school or daycare facilities, the do so under the premise that the teachers and workers there will protect their child from injury. Sadly, in some cases the negligent actions taken by these employees cause serious injuries to children.
If your child has been injured as the result of the negligent supervision of another person, contact Ken Guin. For over 25 years Ken Guin has had experience representing the needs of children.
CHILD INJURY DATA
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), unintentional injury remains the number one cause of death to children under the age of 14. Thousands of children die in the United States each year as a result of an accidental injury. Children at play are very susceptible to these accidents. For instance there are hundreds of thousands of bicycle related injuries reported each year. Tragically, a large number of injuries sustained to children in a bicycle accident result in the child suffering a mild to severe traumatic brain injury.
Catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries, burns, and brain injuries can impart lasting complications and limitations to a child. The effects of these injuries can be felt for the rest of the child’s life and can be accompanied by vast medical expenses.
Daycare centers and schools owe a duty of care to the children learning or staying at their facilities. When child supervisors fail to properly monitor children, serious accidents can take place.
