Child Injuries in New York

Because of their lack of maturity and judgment, children are always at risk for injuries. In many cases, no one is to blame for a child falling off a bicycle or while playing on school or park playgrounds. However, in some cases the injuries a child suffers may be due to the negligence of others, such as teachers, daycare personnel, neighbors, motorists, defective product manufacturers, and more. 

At Dansker & Aspromonte, we can thoroughly investigate all aspects of your child’s injury to determine the potential liability of adults or other entities who may have caused or contributed to the accident or event.

Premises Liability & Defective Product Liability in Child Injury Cases

Premises liability holds property owners responsible for the injuries caused on their premises due to dangerous conditions or safety hazards. These owners and managers are expected to provide a reasonably safe environment for visitors and invitees. Where safety hazards exist, they are expected to know about them, repair them promptly, and warn others about them in the interim. If a child is injured on another’s property due to the negligence of the owner, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim seeking damages. 

Additionally, manufacturers are expected to provide safe consumer products to the public. This applies to all products, including children’s toys, clothing, gear, furniture, and more. When a child is injured due to the negligence of manufacturers selling dangerous or defective products to the public, you may have grounds to hold the manufacturer and others in the supply chain liable for your child’s injuries. 

Injuries to Children by Negligence

All personal injury claims and lawsuits are based on negligence or carelessness or intentional wrongdoing that harms others. This forms the foundation of claims for child injury as well. Negligence occurs when someone fails to act reasonably under the circumstances. When one person causes harm to a child through his actions or inactions, he is said to be “negligent.” If the defendant knew or should have known that the harm would likely occur but failed to take reasonable precautions to avoid it, he is also considered negligent. This includes failing to warn children of dangerous situations and failing to provide adequate safety measures. When failing to do any of these, the negligent person can be held accountable for any resulting damages. 

In child injury cases, these damages can include:

  • All past and future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Disfigurement or scarring
  • Any related or other out-of-pocket expenses associated with the injury, such as in the case of permanent disability
  • Reduced earning capacity

It is important to remember that insurance companies representing at-fault policyholders will do everything possible to deny or reduce their liability. Their adjusters and representatives do not work for you but for their employers. That is why you need an aggressive firm such as ours that is known for its proven results and trial ability. 

Through our efforts to determine the full extent of your child’s injuries and the impact those injuries will have long into the future, we can properly value your claim. This can be done with the help of other experts, such as physicians, rehabilitation experts, and other healthcare professionals who can support your claim through expert evidence. 

Child Care Center & Caretaker Liability

If you are a parent who sends your child to a daycare center, you must be alert to how your child is supervised. Daycare personnel and caretakers are expected to exercise due diligence in seeing that your child is properly supervised. They must keep a close eye on the children under their care, ensuring that no dangerous conditions exist in the facility. If they fail to fulfill this responsibility resulting in your child being injured, you may have grounds for a claim or lawsuit.
