Common Causes of Child Injuries in Corpus Christi

There are virtually unlimited ways in which a child can sustain an injury due to the negligence of another party. While every case is unique and comes with its own set of circumstances, there are certain scenarios that, unfortunately, tend to recur more frequently. Understanding these common causes can help identify and prevent potential hazards. 

Some of the most common causes of child injuries include:

  • ATV/Golf cart accidents: Poor supervision and unsafe driving could lead to unfortunate ATV or golf cart accidents, causing severe injuries to children.
  • Swimming pools and hot tubs (Non-Fatal Drowning): Lack of supervision or inadequate safety measures around swimming pools and hot tubs could result in non-fatal drowning incidents. 
  • Vehicle accidents: Children are susceptible to injuries from car, school bus, church bus, and truck accidents, often due to others' negligence.
  • Falls: Falling from playground equipment, trees, or even stairs at home are common causes.
  • In-line skating and skateboarding accidents: These popular activities can lead to severe injuries, especially in the absence of appropriate safety gear and supervision.
  • Bicycle crashes: With the prevalent use of bicycles among children, crashes can cause serious injuries, often due to lack of safety measures or collision with motor vehicles.
  • Pedestrian accidents: Distracted or negligent drivers can cause accidents involving child pedestrians.
  • Amusement park ride failures: Mechanical failures or operational negligence in amusement parks could lead to serious incidents.
  • Dog attacks: Unsupervised encounters with dogs, especially aggressive breeds, can result in injuries.
  • Trampolines: While fun, trampolines can be dangerous for children, leading to injuries from falls or improper use.
  • Daycare neglect/injury: In some cases, negligence or lack of adequate safety measures at daycare centers can cause harm to children.
  • Sporting accidents: Inadequate safety measures during school or community sports events can lead to severe injuries.
  • Defective toys: Toys with manufacturing defects or improper labels can potentially cause harm to children.
  • Poisoning: Accidental ingestion of harmful substances, often due to improper storage of cleaning supplies or medications, can result in serious health issues.
  • Fire and burn injuries: Lack of safety precautions can lead to fire-related incidents or burns.
  • Choking: Small items, toys, or certain foods can pose a choking hazard for young children.

If your child has suffered an injury that was not mentioned on the list above, you could still have a case. We offer a complimentary consultation to discuss the details of your child's injury and determine the most suitable course of action moving forward. Your child's well-being is our top priority, and we are here to provide guidance and support during this time.

Common Injuries in Child Injury Cases

Child injuries can range from minor to severe, with some having a lasting impact on a child's health, development, and quality of life. 

Common injuries in cases like these include:

  • Brain and spinal injuries can be caused by a fall, a car accident, or sporting accidents, potentially leading to long-term or permanent effects on a child's cognitive and physical abilities.
  • Common in falls and vehicle accidents, fractures are often painful and can require extended recovery periods.
  • Burns can be caused by fire, hot surfaces, or chemicals and can result in significant pain, scarring, and potential emotional trauma.
  • Often resulting from car accidents or falls, internal injuries can be severe and require immediate medical attention.
  • Dental injuries can be caused by falls, sports accidents, or defective toys, potentially affecting a child's speech and eating habits.
  • Eye injuries can occur due to accidents involving toys, chemicals, or sports activities and may impact a child's vision.

The implications of these injuries on a child's life and the life of their family can be substantial. Seeking appropriate legal support can often be a critical step in addressing these challenges effectively.

What Damages Can a Family Recover in a Corpus Christi Child Injury Case?

No amount of money can truly compensate for the trauma and hardship experienced when a child is injured. However, financial compensation can play a crucial role in mitigating the impact of such incidents, helping your family navigate the subsequent challenges and providing for the well-being of your child. 

The pursuit of total compensation is particularly critical as it can help cover not just the immediate medical costs but also any future expenses, such as ongoing therapies, surgeries, or specialized care that your child may need. This aim for full compensation is not about assigning a dollar value to your child's suffering but rather seeing that their care and recovery needs are adequately met. 

These damages encompass a variety of categories, including:

  • Medical expenses: This covers the costs of immediate medical attention following the injury, as well as ongoing and future medical needs related to the injury, such as therapy, rehabilitation, surgery, and medication.
  • Pain and suffering: This refers to the physical pain and emotional distress experienced by the child due to the injury.
  • Disability and disfigurement: If the injury results in long-term disability or disfigurement, compensation may be sought for these life-altering circumstances.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life: This covers the loss of ability to enjoy day-to-day activities and experiences that the child would have enjoyed if not for the injury.
  • Punitive damages: In cases where the party responsible for the injury acted with gross negligence or intentional malice, punitive damages may be awarded as a form of punishment and to deter such behavior in the future.

It is crucial to note that every case varies, and the recoverable damages will depend on the specific circumstances of each situation. An experienced child injury attorney at Hilliard Law can provide a comprehensive understanding of what may be recovered in your specific case during a consultation.
