Child Injured in an Accident
As parents‚ we take effort to keep our children safe. There isn’t much we won’t do to see they’re well protected at home‚ school and out in public. So when an accident happens and they’re injured or harmed in anyway‚ it’s only natural to question – what more could have been done? Was there something I missed? Could have this been avoided? Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident in question – whether it happened while on a school bus‚ at a friend’s house or in a local park – the accident may have been preventable. But‚ then the question becomes – who is responsible?
At the Jurewitz Law Group Injury & Accident Lawyers‚ when we talk about child injury claims‚ we mean those cases of childhood trauma that could have been prevented if the person in charge of your son or daughter’s care had taken the appropriate steps. This could be anyone from the local school bus driver to the parts manufacturer of his or her favorite toy. If someone’s negligent actions were the cause of your child’s injuries they could be held legally responsible. Depending on the situation involved‚ this could mean a wide range of possible damages‚ both economic and non-economic. Some of the more common categories that are awarded money include:
- Rehabilitation‚ both physical and emotional
- Medical expenses‚ both present and future
- Loss of life enjoyment
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
To get the right settlement‚ you’ll need a dedicated Oceanside personal injury attorney to represent your claims. The Jurewitz Law Group Injury & Accident Lawyers is prepared to help you secure the compensation your child needs to put this tragedy behind them.

What is Negligence?
The key to any successful personal injury claim is negligence. It’s not enough for someone to have caused an accident that resulted in your child’s injury. What needs to be present in another person’s behavior is a clear lack of regard or concern for safety – even including their own. For example‚ if a bus driver were drunk behind the wheel while taking children to school‚ they would almost certainly be considered negligent. Or‚ if a manufacturer uses lead-based materials in any of your child’s toys‚ they would be considered negligent. Whenever a person or company fails to provide the minimum standard of care in your child’s life and it results in injuries‚ you can hold them legally accountable.
