What is a Child Injury?
In the context of personal injury law, a child injury refers to any harm or damage suffered by a minor (a person under the age of majority, typically 18 years old) due to the negligent or intentional actions of another individual, entity, or product. These injuries can result from various incidents, such as car accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, defective products, or any other situation where the child's well-being is compromised due to someone else's actions or negligence.
Child injury cases are handled differently from adult injury cases because minors are not legally capable of making their own decisions and pursuing legal claims independently. As a result, the process involves the child's legal guardians, usually their parents, acting on behalf of the injured child as their legal representatives.
Here are some of the most common causes of child injuries:
- Falls: Falls are the leading cause of child injuries. Infants and toddlers are particularly prone to falling from furniture, stairs, changing tables, cribs, or playground equipment.
- Road Accidents: Traffic accidents involving motor vehicles are a significant cause of child injuries, whether as pedestrians, cyclists, or passengers in vehicles.
- Burns and Scalds: Hot liquids, open flames, stoves, and appliances can cause burns and scalds when children accidentally touch or come into contact with them.
- Poisoning: Children may ingest toxic substances like household cleaners, medications, or pesticides, leading to poisoning.
- Drowning: Children can drown in swimming pools, bathtubs, or natural bodies of water, such as lakes and rivers, if left unsupervised.
- Defective Products: Children's products, such as toys and cribs, may pose hidden dangers due to design flaws or manufacturing defects.
- Choking and Suffocation: Small objects, toys, or pieces of food can pose choking hazards for young children, and improper crib bedding or other objects in a baby's sleeping area can lead to suffocation.
- Strangulation: Cords from window blinds, drawstrings on clothing, or toys with long strings can present strangulation risks for young children.
- Sports and Recreational Activities: Participating in sports and recreational activities can lead to injuries, particularly if proper safety gear is not used or if children engage in high-risk activities.
- Accidents at Home: Accidents within the home, such as tripping, collision with furniture, or handling sharp objects, can cause injuries to children.
- Bicycle Accidents: Children riding bicycles without helmets or without adult supervision are susceptible to accidents and head injuries.
- Playground Accidents: Falls from playground equipment, collisions with other children, or defective playground structures can result in injuries.
- School Accidents: Children spend a significant amount of time at school, and accidents can occur due to unsafe premises, inadequate supervision, or transportation-related incidents.
- Dog Bites: Interactions with unfamiliar or aggressive dogs can lead to dog bites and injuries.
