An incident at a small, private school has sent a child to the hospital after getting hit in the head with a baseball bat.
The accident happened around 3:45 p.m. and the incident appears to be accidental. The child was unconscious at one point and had cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. His current physical condition is unknown at this particular point in time.
Our thoughts are with the family during this time, and we hope for a speedy recovery.
A common question we hear often at The Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, LLC is does my child have a personal injury case? Parents often wonder if an accident that happened to their child classifies as a personal injury case. The short answer is that not every child that is injured or sadly dies from an accident has a personal injury claim. The person(s) or business must first be found to be negligent or at fault under Ohio law. To be deemed negligent or at fault means that an individual or entity has not acted in a certain way and caused injury or death to another individual. Proving negligence in a personal injury case can be tricky as there are many different nuances to negligence law in Ohio.
We handle Ohio personal injury cases involving car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, ATV accidents, Ohio workers’ compensation, construction accidents, child injuries, wrongful death, medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, food poisoning, dog bite attacks, and all injury cases.
