Accidents Involving Children


Injuries such as broken arms are common in children but they can be caused by negligence


Children often have accidents and suffer injuries playing on playground equipment or learning how to do such things as ride a bike. It’s just part of being a child; kids will be kids. But many childhood accidents are caused by the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of others. These children can be seriously injured or even die.

At Schiffman Firm, we draw from more than three decades of experience as a firm, over a decade of combined legal experience, and thousands of previous personal injury cases in helping injured children and families. This experience — combined with the resources of our firm, our access to top experts, and our determination to win — has resulted in substantial verdicts and settlements in many child injury cases.

These cases may involve:

  • Inadequate or negligent supervision by teachers, day-care providers, summer camps, day camps, and other people, businesses or organizations responsible for the care, supervision, and safety of children
  • Defective or unsafe products of all types, including dangerous toys, playground equipment, defective bikes, car seats, cribs, household chemicals, firearms, furniture, windows, and window blinds, and more
  • Property owner negligence, commonly thought of in relation to dog bite and swimming pool cases, but also involving slip and fall accidents, tripping accidents and nuisances and attractive nuisances such as an unattended lawn mower, unattended automobile, or an unprotected excavation site
  • Motor vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, All-terrain Vehicles (ATVs), dirt bikes, bicycles, golf carts, boats, personal watercraft (jet skis), and child pedestrians, resulting in head injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, amputations, and other serious and lesser child injuries

We put in the time and effort it takes to find the right experts for each case.

An injury to a child’s brain, spine, or leg is different from the same injury in an adult. Our attorneys understand the profound nature of childhood injuries and work with medical experts to ensure our child clients receive appropriate compensation for serious head injuries, back and neck injuries, spinal cord damage, burns, severe fractures, disfigurement, missing adult teeth, and emotional or psychological trauma. Schiffman Firm is also equipped to deal with lesser injuries to children and is conscious of the necessity of keeping costs down to maximize the amount that the injured child recovers.
