Children are easily injured, particularly young children. Small children are naturally curious. They can investigate dangerous areas and objects and end up getting injured. This is not your child’s fault. When your child sustains a serious injury, it can be one of the scariest things in your life. There is also no need for you to suffer through it alone, particularly when another party it at fault. Kansas City, MO, families turn to the Kansas City child injury attorneys at the law offices of Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet for help when their children are injured.
As a parent, it’s normal to be trusting. Products describing themselves as safe for children should be so. People who promise to take care of your child should do so. Unfortunately, negligence and recklessness by a party or person can cause severe injury to your child. Sometimes a child’s life may even be cut short.
Protecting Your Children
There are many ways a child may sustain an injury. The world is filled with dangers, and it’s hard to protect children from all of them if the products, people, and properties around you aren’t doing their job. Medication errors, product liability, premises liability, medical malpractice, car accidents, and more can all severely injure a child.
With the right legal representation, children injured due to negligence can be protected. A child or his or her family can be compensated for pain and suffering to the injury. If a minor is old enough to have a job, the Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet team of Kansas City personal injury attorneys can assist him or her in recovering wages lost due to the injury.
Navigating the Legal World
In cases where the injury is severe, requiring long-term medical care, a child’s parents are entitled to compensation for 100% of medical costs – past, present, and future. Most parents in Kansas City, MO, are unable to pay for the constant medical a badly injured child might need. Legal representation can help you receive the compensation necessary to ensure your child is taken care of for the rest of his or her life.
Sometimes, the consequences of extreme recklessness or negligence to your child are even more severe than injury. If the death of a child happens as a result of another party’s actions, the child’s parents are entitled to damages. The attorneys at Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet are experienced in gaining compensation in wrongful death cases, as well as survival action cases. These cases are filed when a child suffered pain from the time of injury to the moment of death.
A child’s injury can be a truly terrible event in the life of the child and the lives of his or her family. When an injury results in lifelong disability or pain, this is even more heartbreaking. The death of a child can be devastating. The financial expense of all of these cases is even more difficult in the wake of the emotional fallout. In such events, nobody is the same afterwards.
