General Negligence Involving Children

General Accidents Involving Injury to Children

There are unique issues presented when a child is injured in an accident due to negligence. Whether your child has been the untimely victim of a farming accident, they were injured in a car collision, or were hurt by harmful playground equipment, you need to take action. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you as the parents may be able to recover compensation for any medical bills, pain and suffering.

Acts of Negligence Resulting in Injury

Common acts of negligence resulting in child injury can include:

The statute of limitation for the child to file suit is within 2 years of their 18th birthday. Parents of the child may file for financial restitution to help cover medical expenses, but the opportunity can expire if not filed within 2 years of the incident.

Medical Malpractice Against Ohio's Children

As adults, we have control over which doctors we see and which treatment we receive. When it comes to children, they do not enjoy this luxury and they must blindly trust the doctors and nurses who care for them. When an infant or child is injured at the hands of a negligent medical professional, or if their serious medical condition is misdiagnosed, or undiagnosed, the consequences can be heartbreaking.

If you believe your child was injured as a result of medical malpractice, or worse, if your infant or child has died because of an error made by a negligent doctor, pediatrician, nurse, anesthesiologist, or hospital, The Moore Law Firm can help.

Filing a Wrongful Death Claim

While a lawsuit cannot erase the heartache, it can pay for your child's medical and funeral bills, and bring some semblance of peace knowing that justice has been served. If your child has suffered serious injuries as a result of a physician's error, a medication error, an emergency room error, a birth injury, or due to any other cause, we urge you to contact The Moore Law Firm for help.

We offer free case evaluations and there are no upfront fees or costs. By taking cases on a contingency fee basis, we don't get paid unless we win your case. To take the first step towards recovery, please contact our office today.
