Q: What should I do if my child is injured?

A: Most importantly, get proper medical attention for your child. Before your child recovers, make sure to get pictures of the injuries. If you believe your child’s injuries were a result of someone’s negligence, contact a San Diego child injury attorney that can help you determine the next steps to take.

Q: Do child injury cases cost differently than adult injury cases?

A: Unlike adult cases, attorneys’ fees and settlement amount are reviewed by the courts and must be approved by a judge. Our office works on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will not have to pay us if we can’t win your case.

Q: Will I have to go through a lawsuit to help my child recuperate?

A: No. The majority of child injury cases can be settled outside of court. Only in cases where a settlement agreement cannot be reached during the legal process will it be necessary to file a lawsuit.

Q: How long do I have after a child injury to file a claim?

A: a. In the state of California, you must bring a personal injury claim for your child (injured under 18 years old) before his/her 20th birthday. However, we don’t recommend you waiting that long to file a claim. As with any case, it is important to document the damages and gather the evidence as soon as possible
