Was Your Child Injured in an Accident?
San Francisco Child Injury Attorneys Explain Your Legal Options
Nothing is more heart wrenching than seeing a child sustain an injury. The emotional only pain deepens when an injury is disabling or permanent, because they may be hurt for the rest of their lives. We know the experiences, moments and opportunities the child will miss out on. This pain changes the dynamics of families and leaves a lifelong impact on communities. A child cannot stand up for his or her rights; children need someone to fight for them. If your child has been injured due to someone else’s negligence, then our San Francisco child injury attorneys can help.

What Are Common Child Injuries?
Injury to a child can be devastating for any family. Mistakes by those responsible for the safety of children can result in serious injuries to your child. Through a counsel of medical professionals, our child injury lawyers can help identify what injuries may be claimed. Child injury cases are unique because they require experience with cases involving minors and the special laws that may apply to them. For example, an alarming number of children are injured by televisions that are not secured properly, while very few adults sustain similar injuries.
Our law firm can help you with a wide range of issue involving child injury, including:
- Prescription Drug Errors: Unfortunately, pharmaceutical errors injure thousands of people a year. If your child received the wrong medication or dosage, they may have the right to a compensation claim.
- Child Head Injury Issues: If your child returns from any event with side effects of a head injury, you should call a medical professional. Symptoms include vomiting, confusion, stumbling, irritability and a constant headache.
- Temporary or Permanent Injury: A permanent injury may be misdiagnosed as temporary and some injuries go unnoticed for an extended time. If you notice a change in your child, call your doctor.
What Is Premises Liability?
Premises liability law can be used to identify who may have contributed to your child’s injury while they were away from home. If your child goes to a camp, playground or daycare and is injured, then they may have the right to compensation. An experienced child injury attorney will investigate to determine if an operator, manager, landlord or other individual was negligent. Common things to look out for that may put your child at risk:
- Equipment: If a playground has improperly maintained equipment, you may have a claim. Unsanitary equipment at a daycare may contribute to a child’s illness, resulting in a personal injury. You should also look for safety signs, padding and if anything appears in disrepair.
- Unsafe Toys: Unfortunately, not all daycares stay current with toy recalls. Some daycares still have recalled, defective or dangerous toys that can easily contribute to a child injury.
- Improper Supervision: In a perfect world, no one would cut corners. However, some premises do not have properly licensed supervisors or managers. If your child was injured on premises with inadequate supervision, then you may have a claim for compensation.
