Children — new to the world, without the defense mechanisms and wariness adults develop over a lifetime of experiences — are especially at risk of injuries or harm due to abuse and negligence. Children cannot care for themselves, and any parent, caretaker or guardian knows the feeling of terror that accompanies even the thought of a child injury, much less the horrifying reality of litigating a serious child injury case.
CDC Report & Safety Guidelines Sadly, children are harmed through abuse and neglect every day. Though children might perceive the world to be a kind, exciting and inviting place, the opposite is all too often true, and that childhood naïveté, combined with the intense and frequently overwhelming curiosity that drives them, tragically leads to danger or injuries. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that the leading cause of death among children (ages 1 to 19) is unintentional injuries, and even child injuries that do not result in fatality can be profoundly and especially damaging to children. Though state and federal laws stipulating safety guidelines for children’s products and services exist, they are seldom enforced, and far too many child injuries due to carelessness or negligence occur. The vast majority of child injuries cases are avoidable, and it is imperative that, when negligence that leads to the harm of a child occurs, the responsible parties are brought to justice.
