An Injury To A Child Is Often More Serious Than Parents First Realize

Children play and get hurt all of the time. Scraped knees. Chipped teeth. Bruises. It’s part of being a kid. But, sometimes the injuries are more serious. There are potential dangers to children everywhere, whether it playground equipment, bikes, staircases, child seats, pools or household chemicals, there are all kinds of things that pose a danger to children. Young children especially, who may not be aware of the consequences of their actions can easily be hurt in the kitchen, bathroom, school, crossing streets, playing with toys, putting foreign items in their mouth or playing in unsafe places. In the worst cases, a child’s injury can be very serious and even lead to paralysis, or death.

Was your child injured?
Do you know all of the specifics of the injury?
Do you know who else was present?
Do you know if there were faulty toys, devices, restraints or sporting good equipment that may have contributed to your child’s injury?
Do you suspect your child was injured due to improper supervision or failed safety procedures?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, we have one simple, straight forward question for you: if your child was injured and you suspect someone else was at fault, do you know what to do next? Rest assured, the hard-working legal professionals at Ledger & Associates know exactly what to do next to investigate the injury and, if negligence exists, get you and your family the financial compensation you deserve for the injury suffered. To get a more complete understanding of your legal rights, please don’t hesitate to have a free, confidential initial consultation.

Kids are often hurt because the people responsible for watching over them fail in their duties. You, as a parent or guardian, expect your child to be taken care and if someone fails to protect your child, you should be aware of your legal rights.


If you think you or a loved one may have been involved in a negligent accident and/or died to the negligence of another and need help determining whether or not you have a case, you need to contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible to determine what legal options you may have.
