When you bring your kids to the park, drop them off at daycare, or sign them up for a sports team, you don't expect a traumatic injury to occur — especially to innocent children. But injuries to children happen every day through faulty playground equipment, cribs, and toys, negligence on the part of caregivers, accidents on the playing field, and other seemingly safe situations in everyday life.
The World Health Organization estimates 2000 children die every day due to preventable injuries, and millions suffer non-fatal injuries that "often require long-term hospitalization and rehabilitation," according to the WHO's Director General, Dr. Margaret Chan. Childhood injuries may have long-lasting repercussions, not only limiting your child's participation in normal, everyday activities, but also limiting their future life choices, depending on the severity of the injury.
If your child has been injured due to negligence, unsafe products, or any other cause, the attorneys at Meshbesher & Spence are here for you. We are ready to do everything we can to make sure you are fully compensated for your medical expenses and your child's physical and emotional suffering.
