Lawyers Fighting for the Families of Injured Children
When your child is seriously injured, nothing else matters. Your world stops, and you realize how truly fragile life is. If your child has suffered a permanent or crippling childhood injury, there are several things you should know:
Injuries sustained in childhood can haunt your child for the rest of their life. These injuries can affect your child's quality of life as an adult, limit their physical potential, and cause permanent pain and anguish.
Childhood injuries can cost your child millions of dollars because they will have to be treated for a long period of time, even after the child has grown up. These treatments can include physical and psychological therapy, nursing care, plastic surgery, occupational therapy, medical equipment and other expenses. Over your child's lifetime, these costs can be tremendous, limiting their income and educational potential and burdening them with impossible medical bills and costs of care.
Florida Law limits the time that your child's rights can be protected. However, Florida law also gives your injured child important and powerful rights to seek compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering, and future medical expenses. The time for you to seek this compensation, however, is limited. The statute of limitations in some cases can be as short as two years, after which time your child's claim cannot be filed. You are the only one who can help protect your child's rights.
