Child Injury

Child Injury

Children are especially vulnerable to unexpected accidents because they have not yet developed the experience, skills, and caution levels of adults. An innocent childhood adventure can suddenly turn into a catastrophic injury. Because children are smaller and more fragile than adults, they are more susceptible to severe injuries and even death. An unforeseen injury to or death of a child can completely cripple a family. Though children, especially young ones under the age of 10, are at a high risk for injuries, Florida law permits the parents of the child victim to seek damages for the child’s injuries because Florida does not hold young children accountable for their actions.
