Helping Your Family
Representing Houston Families in Child Injury Cases
No parent ever wants to see their child suffer and will do everything to keep their child safe from harm. There are some occasions, however, where a child is injured in an accident because of someone else's negligence. When this occurs, a parent has every right to hold the negligent party accountable for putting their child in danger and causing them injury. The first step in this process is to hire a Houston personal injury lawyer for counsel and aggressive representation.
Your child is an innocent young person who is unable to speak in their own defense. That is why you as the parent must take action to ensure that the person responsible for your child's injury receives justice for their negligence. In order to file a claim and win your case, evidence must be gathered that proves the other party liable. The court is usually hesitant to take a child's word for granted, since children are naïve and can be easily swayed to make statements that are not factual. Photos, witness statements, and other evidence could help to establish negligence in any of the following cases:
These are just a few of the many ways in which a child can suffer personal injury. Other cases involve emotional injury, which is often a surface indicator of more severe injuries such as physical or sexual abuse.
Filing a claim on your child's behalf will allow you to fight for compensation for any medical bills or property damage that you may suffer as a result of their injury. It may also be the case that your child was killed in an accident and you are now facing extreme emotional distress, as well as funeral and burial costs. Cases like this require a wrongful death claim to be filed so that your expenses are covered and you are able to focus on healing from your loss. No matter what the case may be, don't wait another moment to get legal assistance. Personal injury claims have a time limit under the Texas Statute of Limitations, meaning that you only have two years after the accident to file your claim. Contact our firm today!
