What Constitutes a Child Injury Claim in Florida?
Most child injuries occur due to someone else’s careless actions and disregard for the child’s safety. Examples of potential child injury claims include the following:
- Child head injuries: These head injuries often occur when a child falls on a poorly maintained playground or sports equipment or if another student harms them.
- Poor supervision: If a teacher, staff member, counselor, or coach fails to supervise your child, and your child suffers injuries, they may be liable.
- Birth injuries: This form of medical malpractice often occurs due to negligence from a doctor or nurse, and it can cause serious health complications for your child.
- Defective products: your child may suffer injuries from a malfunctioning toy or product due to design error or insufficient instructions and warnings.
Some child injury claims involve major companies, but we can take on any challenge, regardless of circumstances. During your free consultation, we listen to your story, determine if you have a case, and decide the best course of action to achieve a fair settlement.
What Do You Need to Prove in Davie Child Injury Claims?
If your child suffered injuries due to another party’s neglect, you have to prove the following points using evidence:
- The liable party owed your child a duty to care for their safety
- They breached this duty by behaving carelessly
- This negligence directly caused your child’s injuries and damages
Proving fault may seem overwhelming, but we can help you gather evidence to build a strong claim and prove the liable party caused your child’s injuries. Our professional lawyers can obtain the following evidence to prove fault:
- Police reports
- Medical records
- Witness testimony
- Personal statements
- Expert opinion
- Video camera footage
This evidence demonstrates the existence of your child’s injuries and how they have impacted your life physically, emotionally, and financially. We also recommend taking photos and videos of the accident and documenting your child’s healing to show you are actively seeking treatment. These steps allow us to have as much evidence as possible and see a successful result.
What Compensation Can You Receive for a Child Injury Claim?

- Pain and suffering
- Current and future medical bills

Dealing with insurance companies and keeping track of offers and counteroffers can be frustrating.
