    Important Initial Advice After Your Child’s Injury

    We understand the shock and confusion that follows an injury. Here are some essential steps to take to protect your child’s rights and well-being:

    • Seek Immediate Medical Attention: Health is always the top priority. Get them to a doctor or emergency room right away, and follow all medical advice from healthcare professionals.
    • Document Everything: Keep detailed records of all medical appointments, doctor’s recommendations, bills, and any other accident-related expenses. Take photos of the injury site (if safe) and any damaged property.
    • Avoid Social Media Discussions: Don’t post about your child’s injury or the accident on social media. Insurance companies may use these posts against you.
    • Don’t Discuss Fault or Settlement Offers: Don’t admit fault or discuss the accident with anyone other than your lawyer. Insurance companies may use your words to minimize your claim.
    • Contact a Hartford CT Child Injury Lawyer: An experienced attorney from our firm can guide you through the process, handle communication with insurance companies, and maximize the financial recovery your child is entitled to. We can also help you explore options for long-term care needs, if necessary.

    Taking these steps early on can make a significant difference in your child’s recovery and the outcome of your case. We are here to support you all the way.

    Deadlines

    In the state of Connecticut, there are specific deadlines, known as the statute of limitations, for filing personal injury claims, including those related to child injuries. The statute of limitations sets a time limit within which legal action must be initiated after an injury occurs.

    In Connecticut, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is typically two years from the incident date. It’s essential to be aware of this deadline as failing to file a claim within the specified time frame can result in the forfeiture of your right to seek payouts.

    By taking prompt action and contacting a qualified child injury lawyer as soon as possible, you can protect your rights and maximize your chances of a successful outcome in your case.

    Getting Evidence Together

    Assembling evidence is like building a puzzle—the more pieces you gather, the clearer the picture becomes, and we’re here to guide you through collecting the vital information needed for your case.

    • Police Documentation: If the incident involving your injury was reported to the police, obtaining a copy of the police report is essential. This document provides important details about the circumstances of the incident, including the date, time, and location, as well as any observations made by law enforcement officers at the scene.
    • Medical Records: Gathering all medical records related to your injury is essential for documenting the extent of your injuries and the medical treatment you received. This includes hospital records, doctor’s notes, diagnostic test results, medication prescriptions, and rehabilitation reports. These records serve as key evidence to support your claim.
    • Eyewitness Statements: If there were any witnesses to the accident or event that caused your injury, obtaining their statements can significantly strengthen your case. Eyewitnesses can provide valuable testimony regarding what they saw and heard, helping to corroborate your version of events and establish liability.
    • Photo/Video Evidence: Taking photographs or videos of the accident scene, your injuries, and any property damage can provide visual evidence to support your claim.

    Be sure to document the scene from multiple angles and capture any relevant details, such as road conditions, traffic signals, or hazardous conditions. Additionally, if there were any surveillance cameras in the vicinity, obtaining footage of the incident could be invaluable.

    A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can collect and organize evidence on your behalf, relieving you of this burden so you can focus on your child’s recovery. By entrusting your case to a skilled team, you can ensure that all necessary evidence is gathered and presented effectively to support your compensation claim.

      How Much Does a Child Injury Lawyer Cost?

      Curious about costs? Let’s talk fees and what you can anticipate paying for our assistance with your case.

      Many personal injury attorneys, including those at our firm, operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that you won’t have to pay any upfront costs or out-of-pocket expenses for representation.

      Instead, our fees are contingent upon the successful resolution of your case. If we secure a favorable outcome, such as a settlement or jury verdict in your favor, our fee will be a percentage of the compensation awarded. However, if we do not succeed in obtaining payment for you, you won’t owe us any fees.

      Common Causes of Accidents Involving Children

      Many different accidents can lead to serious child injuries. Some leading causes of unintentional injuries to children in the United States that might lead to an injury claim include:

      • Suffocation
      • Motor vehicle accidents
      • Drowning
      • Burn injuries

      Pedestrian accidents are particularly common among children, as they are more difficult to see, and drivers might not pay close attention and strike a child. These can happen in residential neighborhoods, parking lots, crosswalks, and other locations around Hartford.

      School bus accidents are another concern, as many children board these large buses twice a day for school transportation. While this is a relatively safe way to travel, when a school bus accident occurs, child passengers can sustain severe injuries. Accidents and injuries can also happen when a child is in the process of boarding or exiting a school bus.

      Playground accidents are also common causes of child injuries, and these can happen on playgrounds at schools, in parks, or even at a neighbor’s home. Playgrounds should always have proper maintenance and up-to-date safety considerations, but many playgrounds still have unreasonable hazards that lead to child injuries.

      Child Care Neglect or Abuse

      Professional childcare providers are responsible for preventing and responding to child abuse and neglect, so when a provider is the source of abuse or neglect, you might find yourself especially upset. If someone that you trust to care for your child and keep them safe caused them harm, it entitles you to compensation for your child’s injuries.

      Daycare neglect and abuse are unfortunate situations, and when they occur, you should always seek all possible legal remedies from the daycare provider and their employer.

      Daycare neglect and abuse might involve:

      • Physical assault
      • Unsanitary conditions and toxic exposure
      • Inadequate security
      • Failing to provide food and water

      Knowing whether the injury your child experienced entitles you to damages is hard to determine without reviewing all available evidence. Your Hartford child injury attorney collects the evidence you need to identify liability, prove a claim, and ensure that you can recover any costs associated with your child’s injuries.

      Hartford Child Injury FAQs

      The following are brief answers to some of the questions that you might have concerning your child’s injuries and how your attorney can help advocate for your and your child’s best interests.

      How Can a Lawyer Help Me With My Case?

      One key value that a lawyer presents in your case is their ongoing advocacy and communication with the other party so you can live your day-to-day life without this stress. Your attorney steps into your shoes, takes over all negotiations and communications with the other party, and handles every step of the process so that you can focus on helping your child recover from their injuries.

      What Should I Do After My Child’s Injury?

      The first thing that you should do after your child’s accident and injury is to seek out immediate medical attention. Even in situations where it might seem that there are only minor scrapes and bruises, there can be a more severe injury that you cannot detect without professional medical attention, such as a brain injury.

      When Should I Contact a Hartford Child Injury Lawyer?

      Contact an attorney as soon as possible after you seek emergency medical care. Once your child’s medical condition stabilizes, contacting an attorney will help begin the process of evidence collection and damage calculation to ensure that you can fully recover what you deserve. This will mean you won’t have to cover the costs of the injury that someone else caused.

      Should I Call the Police About My Child’s Daycare Injury?

      You may not know when to file criminal charges in a given situation, and we understand it is especially upsetting when your child suffers an injury. Reaching out to a local Hartford child injury lawyer to discuss how the law applies to your case will help you understand your best options and whether contacting the police is appropriate in your situation.

      How Do I Know Who Is Liable for My Child’s Injuries?

      If your child suffered an injury in an accident, your Hartford child injury lawyer can review the accident to determine liability for the costs associated with your child’s injuries and if you can recover any additional damages. Connect with your Hartford child injury lawyer as soon as possible to discuss a possible case.
