Every day in Dallas-Fort Worth, children are injured. Most of the time it's a bump or a bruise that a quick hug from Mom and Dad can remedy. Other times, however, the injury is more serious. Board-Certified Child Injury Attorney Mark Anderson has over 20 years experience handling Texas child injury and daycare negligence cases, including child injury cases involving dog bites, playground accidents, swimming pool injuries, trampoline mishaps and more. No matter the type, if a child was hurt due to the negligence of a school, aftercare program, daycare center, bus driver or another party, that child and their family should not have to suffer the consequences.
By law, a hurt kid can't fight their own injury claim; their parents must do it for them. However, child injury law isn't exactly like it is for adults. Most parents choose to hire an expert to help ensure they win their child maximum compensation to cover their injuries, pain and suffering.

What Our Child Injury Attorneys Can Do For You
We'll Explain Your Child's Rights and Your Rights as Their Parents
We know that Texas child injury law can be tedious. We wish the justice system was more straightforward, but there are reasons it is the way that it is. If your child was hurt in an accident and other party is at-fault, you have a right to pursue a claim for compensation to cover things like medical bills and emotional trauma. In order to do this, however, you'll need to establish negligence. This means you have to prove that the other party, be it a bus driver, daycare provider or the likes, directly caused injury to your child.
We'll Help Establish Negligence
Child injury law can be very tricky business. It's for this reason that lots of parents choose to hire an attorney to handle their child's case. Here at the Anderson Law Firm, we have over 40 years of combined experience winning Texas child injury cases. We know exactly what to look for, who to call and how to construct your case in the right way in order to convince an insurance company or jury to pay you and your child the money you deserve.
An example of negligence would be if the school hired a bus driver with a poor driving record, and then that bus driver went on to wreck the bus. The school knew the driver was unfit for the position but hired them anyway. Another example would be if a daycare provider failed to pay close attention to their group and a child went missing, perhaps wandering away and getting hurt in the process. These are things people knowingly do, and those actions put your children at risk.
In order to win your case we'll need to prove negligence, and we know how.
We'll Get Your Child the Compensation They Deserve
If your child was hurt in an accident, they shouldn't have to pay the price. Under Texas law, children are entitled to compensation for their medical bills, pain and suffering. The Anderson Law Firm can help them get it.
