When should I pursue a claim for my child after he was injured in a car crash?

 

A:

There are many reasons why you would want to pursue a personal injury claim for your son after he suffered an injury in a traffic collision. Some examples include:

  • Driver negligence. If another driver ran a red light, was intoxicated, distracted at the wheel, or was otherwise careless behind the wheel, you should pursue a claim against that driver and his or her insurance company for your son’s damages.
  • Defective car seat. If your son’s injuries were the result of a defective car seat, you may be able to hold the manufacturer liable for his injuries that resulted from their poor design or construction.
  • Car defects. If airbags, seat belts, or tires were found to be defective and caused your son to suffer needless injuries, you should pursue a claim against the auto manufacturer for his injuries and damages.

Auto accidents can cause kids to suffer needless brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, disabilities, and more. Sadly, children are often robbed of their childhood and the enjoyment of life. When a private party or manufacturer is responsible for your son’s injuries, you should hold that party accountable.
