Tucson Child Injuries Attorney

Injuries to children are reported every year in Arizona.  Some of the injuries are so gruesome, or deadly, that they appear on television.  We can all do our part to avoid injuries to children.  Taking safety precautions and monitoring our children is the best way to avoid injuries.

 

Negligence is the leading cause of injuries to children.  That is to say that carelessness causes injuries that could have been easily prevented.  This Tucson law firm has represented many families of whom their children have been injured after an accident.  If your child has been injured in an accident please contact the Tucson child injuries lawyers at the Lara Law Firm, PLLC.

 

Injuries to Children

Here are some child injury statistics from the United States:

  • More than 6,600 children lose their lives after a negligent act each year
  • Bicycle accidents account for 10% of all of these deaths
  • Over 14 million children are hurt each year from injuries.
  • Fires in the home make up 47% of the deaths in children from birth through 4 years old.
  • The leading cause of death in children over 1 year old is trauma.

 

Premises Liability

Premises liability is one example of negligence that can cause injuries in children. An unsafe pool or playground has the potential to cause injury in children. Product liability, such as faulty car seats and strollers, cribs, flammable children’s clothing, and unsafe toys are a large factor in the injuries of children.

 

The misdiagnosis of an illness and mistreatment of an illness are both examples of medical malpractice, which may also cause injuries to children.   We know that the emotional, physical and financial losses due to injuries to your child can be overwhelming and unexpected. Our personal injury attorney will do everything necessary to recover compensation for the injury that your child has suffered.
