Do You Need To Hire A Lawyer If Your Child Is Injured In An Accident?
Do you need a Toledo, Ohio child accident lawyer to help you if your child has been injured in an accident?
Lawyers help level the playing field between parents and adjusters. Insurance adjusters handle claims for a living. Naturally, they have a tremendous advantage over most parents in negotiating a settlement. This is true even if the parents are very sophisticated and have successful careers.
Injury cases, particularly those involving children, are far more complicated than they often appear. The number of legal issues that arise even in seemingly straightforward cases can be tricky for even for lawyers who specialize in representing injured people.
For example, the attorneys in our office have handled tragic cases involving children who were injured or killed when struck by a car in a driveway. Because our office is experienced in handling such cases, we know the importance of doing things like hiring a private investigator to interview witnesses, gathering the child’s school records, and making sure the family members of the child were receiving the proper psychological treatment to cope with their loss.
Apart from legal issues, an attorney experienced with child injury cases may be able to help guide you to the best medical care in the area. We’ve had a number of situations in our office where an accident has left a child with a broken arm or leg. That’s a problem for anyone, but growing children can experience issues with growth plates that can cause situations such as one leg being shorter than the other. Because we deal with physicians on a daily basis, we’re able to connect our clients with the top medical providers in the region.
So, if your child has been injured, contact a lawyer as soon as possible to protect your son or daughter’s rights. Consulting a lawyer early in the case could make the difference between whether your child is taken advantage of or receives fair compensation.
We have also written a book for parents called Little Kids, Big Accidents. Call our office toll free at 800.637.8170 for your FREE copy of this exclusive book. Our lawyers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
