Injuries to Children
WE PURSUE COMPENSATION FOR THE INJURIES YOUR CHILD SUFFERED
In any type or wreck or accident, children are far more likely to sustain serious injuries that adults. As a child’s bones and muscles continue to form, an accident or wreck can damage growing tissue and cartilage and leave your child facing incredibly painful injuries and a lengthy recovery process.
When your child has been injured because of another party’s negligence, your focus is on their physical and emotional recovery rather than the complex legal issues that relate to the wreck or accident. Our Middle Tennessee child injury lawyers understand how difficult it can be to address these legal issues, and we work to offer the advice you need to understand your case, the compensation your family may be entitled to and your options for pursuing justice on behalf of your child.
HOW CAN WE HELP YOUR FAMILY DURING THIS TIME?
We have the skills and knowledge needed to help you pursue compensation for a wide range of injuries that your child may have suffered, including:
- Spinal cord injuries
The spine is one of the most vulnerable parts of the body, and even relatively minor injuries can cause significant disability, weakness, and even paralysis. Children who suffer spinal cord injuries may experience a lifetime of reduced mobility, strength, and even employment prospects. Our legal team will fight hard to make sure your child’s future is in good hands.
- Brain injuries
Children develop rapidly—both mentally and physically—from the time they are born until the time they become young adults. But when children suffer brain injuries, they are at significant risk of suffering developmental delays, disorders, and even personality changes that can put a significant burden on them and their families. If your child suffered a brain injury and faces academic, social, or neurological issues, you deserve full compensation for their lifetime medical expenses.
- Burn injuries
In addition to being extremely painful, disabling, and expensive to treat, burn injuries also have the potential to leave victims with significant scarring, hair loss, and permanent loss of skin in the affected areas. When children have to deal with these issues, it can severely affect their self-esteem, self-confidence, and ability to interact with their peers on a normal level. No child should have to experience life with these burdens, and that’s why we will stand up for your rights to get a fair and just settlement.
- Birth injuries
The birth of a child is supposed to be a joyous occasion and a life-changing moment, but for some families, it’s a life-changing moment due to complications during birth that cause the child to suffer serious injuries. Birth injuries can range from doctors applying excessive force while the child is being born to failure to observe the child’s vital signs to a delay in ordering medically necessary procedures. At Matt Hardin Law, we will do everything in our power to hold the doctor or healthcare provider liable for your child’s birth injuries.
- Broken bones
Because children’s bones are still growing and developing throughout childhood and puberty, they are more vulnerable to breaks and fractures. Broken bones are not only costly from a financial standpoint, but they’re also costly from a developmental standpoint. Dealing with a broken hand, arm, wrist, foot, or leg can cause your child to suffer difficulties with normal activities and schoolwork, and it’s not uncommon for children to fall behind in the classroom. Our legal team knows the impacts broken bones can have on children’s futures, and it’s our goal to help you during this time.
- Loss of limb
Losing a limb is one of the most debilitating and disabling injuries that a person can experience. It’s even more traumatic when it happens to a child—your child. Children who loses limbs due to accidents or medical mishaps can experience significant difficulties with day-to-day life, including reaching their full potential at school or even relating to peers. No matter what event caused your child to suffer such a traumatic injury, you can count on us to be there for you and your child every step of the way.
- Road rash or disfigurement
Everyone is self-conscious of their appearance to some degree, but children put increase emphasis on looks—especially during teen years. That’s why serious injuries like road rash or injuries that cause burns or scars can be psychologically traumatic for young children. Our Nashville personal injury lawyers understand the impact these types of injuries can have on youth, and that’s why we fight to hold the negligent parties who allowed those injuries to happen accountable for their oversights.
