Children get hurt as a natural part of growing up. Before children reach their teens, parents have likely lost track of the number of cuts and scrapes they have bandaged, bruises they have iced and bee stings they have treated. More harrowing moments may result in a stitch or a splint, but nothing can prepare parents for a devastating injury to their child caused by the negligence or misconduct of another.
Speaking Up For Injured Children
The Long Island Child Injury Lawyers at Miller, Montiel & Strano, P.C., in Garden City, New York, are aware of how painful it can be for a parent to watch a child suffer. We are parents, too, and we know the special needs of a child who has been injured. Our dedication to cases involving children goes beyond obtaining just compensation. We know there is much more at stake.
Representing The Most Vulnerable Victims
While it often takes aggressive efforts to reach a successful resolution in a personal injury case, there is a fine line a lawyer must walk when the victim is a child. In addition to the physical injuries, a child may suffer emotionally in ways that may affect the rest of his or her life. We are dedicated to protecting the well-being of the child as our primary focus throughout the process of seeking just compensation for the injuries suffered due to someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or misconduct.
Some of the past cases we have successfully resolved involved the following:
- Injuries at school or on a school bus
- Car accidents involving children
- Birth injuries
- Day care injuries
- Bicycle accidents
- Injuries to children left unsupervised
- Injuries from toys, cribs, or defective products
- Accidents at a park or on playground equipment
It is important that any civil action on behalf of your child seek justice without causing your child to feel that the accident was his or her fault or that the resulting injuries make your child a lesser person. Our lawyers strive to uphold the dignity of the child while fighting for results that will bring hope for a positive future.
