Virginia Child Injury Lawyer

There’s nothing more heart-breaking than seeing a child get hurt. This is especially true when they’ve been injured because of someone else’s negligence or reckless actions. Our Virginia personal injury lawyers care about kids, and have represented kids that have been hurt in accidents for over 33 years.

Common child personal injury accidents

  • Dog Attacks: Dog bite injuries range from minor to deadly. Lacerations and punctures are common among child dog bite victims, as are sprains, fractures and tissue loss. Many times, scarring on the face and neck leave a permanent reminder of the attack.
  • Birth Injury: Medical malpractice can occur virtually anywhere, including the delivery room. When they happen, medical mistakes can have a lifelong impact on the child and mother.
  • Child Lead Poisoning: When someone is a victim of lead poisoning, the effects can be long-lasting, particularly in children. Child victims often suffer developmental disabilities that can make adjusting to a normal life practically impossible.
  • Sexual Harassment at School: Sexual harassment is illegal and should not be allowed to persist in any school.  When sexual harassment occurs, many people feel confused and helpless.
  • Auto-Related Accidents: car accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents

Compensation for Child Injury Claims

There’s no easy process or formula used  to determine the value of a child personal injury case. Thankfully, an experienced attorney can evaluate all of the circumstances surrounding your child’s injuries and help to determine fair compensation. Some important factors include:

  • medical expenses including past, present, and future medical care associated with the injuries sustained in the accident.
  • future special education expenses
  • cost of future care including childhood and adulthood needs
  • loss of future earning capacity
  • loss of enjoyment of life
  • pain and suffering

Deadlines for Virginia Injury Claims

If you wait too long, the door to justice is closed forever. In Virginia, you typically must file a lawsuit with the court within two years of the date of the accident.  If the injured person is a child or a person with a mental disability, this period can often be extended beyond two years. Consult with an experienced Virginia personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to avoid missing important deadlines.
