Common Child Safety Issues

Because children and teenagers are still developing and learning, there’s no question that they face heightened safety risks, both out in public and in supervised settings. When you entrust your child to a place that claims to care for children – such as a day care, school, camp or community center – you have a right to expect that they will be supervised, unharmed, and protected in the event of an emergency.

Unfortunately, accidents do happen, and children who are injured may suffer a lifetime of consequences because of an adult’s negligence. In some cases, children may even become victimized by staff members who are sexual predators and abusers.

Here are some common child safety issues that can cause serious, life-altering injuries:

Seeking justice for harm done to children requires the insight of a law firm like ours. As dedicated trial attorneys, we work closely with our clients to discover the causes and responsibility for the injuries to their children – and we help them recover.

Case Study: Recovery for 12-Year-Old Girl Injured in Amusement Park

As a noted Miami injury firm, we’ve taken on many cases involving child safety issues, and we have experience with specialized and nuanced cases, such as amusement park ride injuries. In one example, we represented 12-year-old Teagan Marti and her family in a lawsuit against a negligent ride operator at the Extreme World amusement park in Wisconsin Dells.

When the ride operator failed to confirm that the safety net was in place on a bungee jump free fall ride, Teagan fell and hit the ground without anything to break her fall, resulting in 10 spinal fractures, a crushed pelvis, and loss of blood to the brain. Teagan was left unable to walk after this accident. We were able to reach a confidential settlement with Extreme World to care for Teagan and now there is some hope that she may be able to walk again one day.

When the patient returned home the next day, he died of a pulmonary embolism due to the blood clot that was initially suspected by the family.
