Toronto Children’s Injuries Lawyers
For parents, guardians, and responsible citizens, any injury sustained by a child is a cause for concern. Unfortunately, children’s impressionability and defenselessness make them particularly vulnerable to injury and abuse. Because children are in an ongoing state of physical and emotional growth, child injuries can have a long-term impact that persists longer than adult injuries. Whether the injury was caused by abuse, negligent supervision, medical malpractice, or product defect, any degree of harm sustained by a minor could result in immediate or future symptoms that have the potential to hinder development. In order to keep a child’s best interest in mind, child injury cases often require immediate action.
Instances of child injury can be very frightening for all parties involved. It is a parent’s deepest wish that their child has the opportunity to grow up happy and healthy. Sadly, preventable injuries are inflicted onto minors all too often. At Mazin & Associates, PC, our dedicated Toronto child injury lawyers believe in the protection of those most vulnerable to harm. We fight for families who have been hurt by the negligent actions of a careless party and work to minimize childhood trauma, while not subjecting injured children to undue burden.
Types of Child Injury
A large portion of child injury occurs because those responsible for the child fail to provide proper supervision. Those who fail to keep a watchful eye may include a teacher, daycare employee, babysitter, coach, caregiver, parent, guardian, or bus driver. Common cases involving child injury include:
- Toy or product defect
- Bicycle accident injury
- Birth defect injury
- Drowning or other swimming pool related injury
- Burn injury
- Playground injury
- School bus injury
- Motor vehicle injury
- Crib injury
- Daycare injury
- Dog bite injury
- Amusement park injury
Children can also suffer injury at the hands of medical professionals who fail to correctly diagnose conditions, delay treatment, or perform unnecessary medical procedures on a child. The ability to form reasoned judgment is significantly underdeveloped for children, making it easy for children to be taken advantage of by adults who do not have their best interests in mind. This also gives them a tendency to make decisions that may result in avoidable injuries if they’re not closely monitored.
