Injuries to Children

Denver and Aurora Personal Injury Attorney

Every year children sustain serious and life threatening injuries from a variety of accidents. In fact, in children under the age of 14, childhood injuries are the #1 cause of death. While there are an infinite number of ways a child can be injured or killed, some of the main causes of injuries to children are falls, automobile accidents, defective products, drowning and choking. According to the Center for Disease Control, over 2 million children were injured as a result of a fall in 2001 alone. These falls can range from falling off of playground equipment to falling off of a bicycle and injuries can range from scrapes and broken bones to serious head injuries and death. While many of these are tragic accidents, there are circumstances when the accident is due to another party’s negligence. When this occurs, you may need to seek the advice of a qualified and experienced Colorado personal injury attorney. Toy Injuries and defective products account for thousands of injuries to children every year. In fact, every year hundreds of baby products and toys are recalled due to improper construction, dangerous components or faulty design. In 2003, 160,000 children were rushed to the emergency room for a toy related injury and 64% of all toy related deaths were caused by choking. When you purchase a toy for your child, you trust that it is manufactured and designed properly. Toys that break into small pieces can easily become choking hazards, toys that are manufactured with lead based paint can lead to lead poisoning and toys that contain strings or cords can tragically result in strangulation. When the toy unexpectedly causes injury or death, the manufacturer or engineer may be to blame. If your child was injured as a result of another person’s negligence, you will need a compassionate and aggressive Colorado personal injury attorney on your side. Your attorney will need to investigate every aspect of your case to determine if faulty design or poor manufacturing contributed to your child’s accident. In addition, if the product is still currently on the market, your attorney may need to take swift legal action to ensure that no other child is injured in the future.
