As a parent, nothing is more important than your child’s safety and well-being. Despite your best efforts to protect them, there are moments when, due to someone else’s negligence, your child may get hurt despite your efforts to shield them from potential risks. Whether your child is in a car, at the store, or simply walking in the neighborhood, there is always a possible risk of personal injury. If another person or entity is responsible for your child’s injury, they should be held accountable. We understand that no amount of compensation can truly make up for what your child has endured, but pursuing a Los Angeles child injury claim is a step towards seeking the justice your child deserves.

When Can You File a Child Injury Case?

Unfortunately, no matter how hard you try to protect your children, they are often much more susceptible to accidents that can lead to injuries. If your child has suffered an injury due to the negligence of another party who owed them a duty of care, you have the right to pursue justice by filing a child injury case. 

Some of the most common examples of incidents where a parent has the right to file a child injury case include the following types of accidents: 

  • Amusement park accidents including faulty rides
  • Birth injuries
  • Commercial vehicle accidents 
  • Dog bites
  • Hazardous toys or defective products
  • Medical malpractice
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Poorly supervised daycare facilities
  • Swimming pool accidents

If your child was involved in an accident that left them injured, you have the right to file a claim if the injury likely could have been prevented had the other party practiced a reasonable level of care. You may be eligible to collect damages for your child’s injuries by filing a strong claim.

Who May Be Liable for Your Child’s Injury Case?

When it comes to building a strong child injury case, one of the most important steps is to identify the liable party in your child’s case. Depending on the specific details and circumstances of your child’s case, there are various parties who could be held liable for the harm your child has suffered. 

One of our experienced child injury lawyers will launch a full investigation into your case to collect all necessary evidence needed to identify the liable party in your case. Once the responsible party has been identified, the next step one of our lawyers will take to help you pursue justice is to prove their liability. To prove liability in a child injury case, your lawyer must provide evidence of the four elements of negligence. The elements of negligence are as follows:

  • The liable party owed your child a duty of care
  • The duty of care was breached
  • The breach of duty led to your child’s harm
  • You and your child have suffered losses as a result

Compensation You May Recover for Your Child’s Injury

When an accident leaves your child injured, you may worry that you will have to pay out-of-pocket for the expenses related to their recovery. However, we believe our clients should never have to pay for injuries caused by the negligence of the party responsible for their child’s harm. Filing a personal injury claim allows you to pursue justice after your child is injured in an incident caused by another party’s negligent actions. 

The damages that child injury victims may be eligible to collect after filing their claim include the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death

To pursue the fair compensation you are owed after your child has been harmed due to negligence, contact our Los Angeles legal team today.
