Mankato Personal Injury Attorney & Lawyers
One of a parent’s worst fears is that their child will be seriously injured at some point. They worry enough that their child will be injured under their watch and worry even more when their child is under the supervision of someone else.
Nonetheless, child injuries can occur anywhere at any time. They can occur in car accidents, at birth, while under the care of a doctor, while at daycare, or while at school. If your child has been injured because of someone else’s negligence, you can hold the responsible party accountable for medical expenses, the wages you have lost from work, and other applicable monetary damages as allowed by the law.
Experience In All Child Injury Cases
When you hire Simmonds & Wright to represent you in your personal injury case, you will be working with a personal injury lawyer who is ready to fight for your rights and the rights of your injured child. Some common causes of child injury include:
- Playground injury
- Defective playground equipment
- Defective toys
- Car accidents
- School bus accidents
- Daycare provider or babysitter negligence
- Drowning accidents
There are many ways in which children can be injured and, as a parent, you do not have to tolerate what has occurred. You do have the right to pursue a personal injury case against those responsible because of the costs that you have had to incur as a result of the accident. When you recover compensation, you obtain justice in the matter by requiring them to pay for the monetary damages done to you and your family.
In the case that the injury was caused by a defective product, the manufacturer, wholesaler, and distributor can be held responsible for the item being on the shelves when it was harmful.
Seeking Justice For You
When your child has been injured due to someone else’s negligence, having your Mankato personal injury attorney seek full compensation for you could mean you not having to be responsible for any of the expenses related to the accident. When a parent is dealing with a child injury, time is taken away from work and there are medical expenses. Depending on the severity of the injuries, the child may need long-term care. The goal is to make sure you and your child have what is needed to take care of all of the accident-related costs. You didn’t ask for your child to be injured, which means you didn’t ask for the expenses that came with it. For that reason, you shouldn’t have to shoulder all of the responsibility.
