Every year, one in ten children in Florida are injured seriously enough to visit the emergency room or hospital for medical treatment. In some cases, these injuries may be the result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. If your child has been injured in Florida at no fault of their own, you may be entitled to compensation.

If your child was injured and you were not present, it can be difficult to understand exactly what led to the accident. This is why it is so important to speak with witnesses and document their perspective of what happened. This may come in handy later on if the case goes to trial.
You should also document all medical bills associated with your child’s injury, including trips to the emergency room or primary care doctor, costs for medications, and more. This step can help ensure that you receive the compensation your child deserves.
Seeking legal guidance after a child is injured can often be a different process than after an adult is injured. First and foremost, a lawsuit must be filed on behalf of the child by only their parent or legal guardian.
Oftentimes, attorneys may find organizations like schools, churches, hospitals, and companies to be at fault for your child’s injuries.
