Liability in Child Injury Cases
Children suffer scrapes and bruises almost on a daily basis while playing. These are to be expected. However, there are times when children are seriously injured as a result of accidents. While many of these severe injuries are unintentional, most are a result of accidents that could have been avoided. These accidents often occur as a result of negligence on the part of adults. There are several ways how this can happen.
When you place your child in another adult’s care, you expect that they will be watchful and keep your child from harm. This is true whether you drop your child off at school, daycare, or even a holiday camp. Caretakers are required to supervise and monitor children to ensure their safety. However, when a caretaker fails to do so, accidents can occur. When this happens you can hold the caretaker or the institution they work for responsible for your child’s injuries.
Manufacturers have the responsibility to produce and distribute safe products. This is especially true when the intended consumer of the product is a child. It is easy for children to be injured as a result of using an unsafe product. When this happens it is possible to hold the company behind the product responsible for your child’s injuries. Both the manufacturer as well as the retailer that sold the product can be held liable.
Property owners are required by law to ensure their properties are reasonably safe for guests or visitors. They are therefore meant to attend to hazards or provide adequate warning about the hazards. While property owners have no obligation to protect trespassers, this does not apply to children. Property owners can be held liable for injuries children sustain as a result of dangerous conditions on their property even if the child wandered onto their property without an express invitation.

Frequently Asked Questions about Child Injuries in New York
Putting an exact value on a child injury case can be tricky. There are no two cases that are exactly alike and there is no mathematical way to determine the exact amount of compensation you can recover for your claim. However, an experienced New York child injury lawyer can provide you with an approximate figure on how much you can expect to recover based on the circumstances surrounding your case as well as their experience in handling similar cases. This approximate figure will act as a guide in pursuing your claim and ensure that you can avoid settling for less than the true value of your case.
Every child injury case is unique. With the help of an experienced attorney, you can recover economic and non-economic damages for a child injury claim. Economic damages are given to compensate for financial losses resulting from the accident. These include:
— Medical bills
— Future medical expenses
— Long term care
— Permanent disability
— Your lost wages for the period you take off work to care for your child.
Non-economic damages are given to compensate for the psychological impact that an accident can have on the child and their parents. Non-economic damages may include:

— Post-traumatic stress disorder
