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:

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.
