When your child is injured, you feel helpless. You are probably shocked, angry, and you might not know how to proceed.
If your child’s injury is the result of someone else’s recklessness or negligence, you might be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. The lawsuit won’t change what has already happened, but it can get your child the compensation that they deserve. Once justice is served, your family can begin to heal from this traumatic experience.
This section of our website discusses some common experiences that lead to child injury. If your child faced one of these situations, you can get the information that you need by visiting these pages. If you have additional questions or a unique situation, please contact my office. We can set up a consultation to discuss your child’s situation and discuss the best way to proceed. For more information, call me at 203-925-9200.

If a dog owner acts in a negligent or reckless way in regards to their dog, they can be held accountable for any injuries to your child. You can find more details about dog bites here.
Unfortunately, some infants sustain injuries while they are born. Sometimes, these injuries are not the fault of the doctor and nurses involved in the birth, but sometimes they are. Check out this page to determine who is at fault for your child’s birth injuries, and if you can pursue a personal injury case.
