Prevention Is Only Part of the Game

Parents and caregivers can create comfortable, nourishing, emotionally warm environments for children by restricting the amount of refined sugars and liquid sugars they consume, urging them to associate with playmates who will encourage (rather than discourage) good values, and creating a safe, sheltered, and secure home life. But despite all our best efforts – the car seats, the child proofing, the helicopter parenting – accidents can and do happen.

Obviously, your first priority should be to get medical care for the child as soon as possible. Whether the child has suffered a cutting injury, a poisoning or allergy injury, or a force inflicted injury from a car accident or slip and fall, both the duration between the injury and the administration of medical care and the quality of that medical care can be crucial. The longer you wait to get help, the more damage can be done.

Holding Other People and Businesses Accountable for What Happened

In terms of holding other parties responsible for your child’s injury, the same rules apply: get good help as quickly as possible. Begin by documenting how the injury happened, who was there, and what occurred right afterwards. Photographic evidence, witness testimony, and any other tangible evidence can be useful. Don’t worry about sorting through the evidence at first. Just collect as much information as possible, and your Louisville, KY child injury lawyer can later pore over the data and pick out what’s most useful to your case.

Child injury cases can get surprisingly complicated, even if they at first appear simple. For instance, say a child suffered a burn injury at a neighbor’s house while playing with a fireplace tool, like hot tongs. Your instinct might be to blame the other parent for failing to provide supervision. But a deeper analysis of the accident might show that your child and his friend had been playing with a defective toy. In this case, not only might the other parent be liable for damages but also the manufacturer or designer of that broken toy might also be liable.
