Man faces charges for crash resulting in 2 children's injuries

Car crashes can happen for a number of reasons, but in cases involving children, they have to be scrutinized. Watching children go through the difficulties of a crash with serious injuries is hard for everyone from families to authorities to the doctors who treat them.

What should you do if a dog is going to attack?

When a dog attacks, you may be completely caught off-guard. Whether it's a random dog that attacks you on a run or a friend's pet who gets upset over a toy or item on your clothing, the reality is that a dog attack can happen seemingly out of nowhere. If you're not prepared, there's a high risk of serious injuries that the owner of the pet will be held liable for in most cases.

Traumatic events impact children in the long term

Traumatic events affect children for many years into the future. When your child suffered injuries in a car crash, you thought that he was fine, but over time, you have noticed that he isn't acting normally. Your child has become more withdrawn and sometimes acts out at school. While that might be attributed to him being a growing boy, it could also be a sign that he's not recovering well from the traumatic event.

Hold negligent parties accountable for pediatric injuries

It would be a difficult task to find a child who had never suffered an injury. There is a difference, though, between an injury suffered due to clumsiness or true accidents and an injury suffered because of negligence. For example, it's fairly normal for children to get hurt playing sports. A child might get hit with a baseball when he or she isn't paying attention, for instance. What wouldn't be normal is if the coach intentionally hit the ball as hard as he could toward the child or if the bat broke and shattered because it had been taped back together.

Schools must supervise children to avoid lawsuits for negligence

When you were a child, you probably loved playing games in gym class. You got to play kickball and fun games like dodgeball. What makes these games fun is that there is enough oversight to prevent injuries. If there isn't, then there is a major potential for serious injuries or even unintentional deaths.

How can you prevent a child from getting hurt?

Children are accident prone, there's no question about that. Despite their inexperience in the world, children must be protected as much as possible from unnecessary accidents. When negligence or a lack of oversight leads to injuries, parents may be in a position to file a claim against those responsible.

Liability and play dates: What parents need to know

Your children have been nagging you to let their friends come over to try out their new playground equipment in the backyard. You have a pool and many fun things to do. As a parent, you know that the items you allow your children to play with have their own risks, but it's ones you're willing to allow. Would other parents feel the same? If a child gets hurt at your house, will you be held liable?
