As a Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury lawyer, I know than serious injuries can have a long lasting impact on the life of the victim. This is particularly true when the victim is a child when the injury occurs. A scar on their face caused by a dog bite could cause painful and traumatic experiences through their teenage years. A amputation could negatively affect their potential earning capacity once they become an adult. A traumatic brain injury might mean they need permanent care for the rest of their life.
If your child has been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, it is important that you are informed and knowledgeable of your child’s legal rights. You may be entitled to compensation.
Don’t Settle Your Claim Without Consulting an AttorneyInsurance companies are in business to make a profit. Unfortunately, despite all their promises of being there when you need them most, as a Fort Worth personal injury attorney, I know that most insurance companies have a tendency to put profits before people (even their own customers). Even if it appear that the insurance adjustor is treating you fairly, it costs nothing to speak to a lawyer who can independently and honestly assess your case and let you know what a fair settlement would be.
This is extremely important in child injury cases because you are acting on your child’s behalf. If you accept a settlement without considering the consequences their injuries might have on their future earning capacity, mental anguish, or enjoyment of life, then you are costing them money. Your child is dependent on you to ensure that they are treated fairly and that they receive the maximum compensation entitled to them under Texas law.
How Do I Know if I Need a Lawyer?The Anderson Law Firm offer completely free, no obligation consultations to the parents of children who have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. However, a good rule of thumb to consider is that you probably need a child injury lawyer if your son or daughter has suffered broken or fractured bones, burns, cuts or lacerations, scarring, spinal injury, amputation or other loss of limbs/digits, traumatic brain injury, blunt force trauma, or if their injuries required them to be hospitalized or undergo surgery.
