Our law firm's ability to analyze liability issues in terms of your child's age, development and judgment at the time of the accident can represent an important advantage in cases involving playground accidents or unsafe toys.

Children are held to a lower standard of care than adults, but how much responsibility a child might bear for an accidental injury will depend on such factors as age, educational level and degree of understanding of the actual risk encountered.

Evaluating and proving the damages suffered by an injured child can also present challenges for a personal injury attorney. The impact of a blow of a given force is likely to harm a child more than an adult. Children's healing rates are different from those of adults, and even relatively simple injuries, such as fractures, can sometimes have developmental consequences that will need to be monitored and considered in a damages demand.
