Nebraska Child Injury Attorneys

Legal Help for Child Injury Victims

It is to be expected that a child will suffer reasonable injuries while they are young. Children love to run and play, and it is a real statement to say they, unfortunately, may sustain injuries while doing so, such as falling and scraping their knees while playing hide-and-seek. However, when a child is injured due to negligence or oversight, their parents are left wondering what can be done to ensure such wrongful actions do not occur again. Consulting with an Omaha personal injury attorney can help them determine whether it is appropriate to file a Nebraska personal injury claim against the person or entity responsible for their child's suffering.

The family of a child who has been injured due to another person's negligence may be able to receive compensation for their child's injuries, pain and suffering, and financial difficulties related to the accident and subsequent injury. In the unfortunate event of a child's death, compensation may be available to help with costs related to funeral expenses and more. While it is understood that money can't take back the accident, holding negligent parties accountable for their actions can help guarantee they will not act that way again, as well as provide for a family after what can be a difficult experience, both in relation to their emotional distress as well as finances.

Common Causes of Child Injuries

The following is a list of some of the common causes of child injuries, many of which result from another person's negligence:

Proving Negligence in a Nebraska Child Injury Accident

When a child is injured due to negligence, their parents are left wondering what can be done to ensure such wrongful actions do not occur again.

A Nebraska child injury lawyer can help families whose children have sustained a personal injury due to someone else's negligence obtain the compensation their family needs, and deserves. In a personal injury lawsuit, it will need to be proven that the child suffered an injury, that the injury was the defendant's fault, and establish the extent of the losses sustained by the family as a result in order for adequate compensation to be compensated by the jury. Since it can be quite difficult to prove negligence in liability in these types of cases, any family that wishes to pursue compensation for their child's injury is advised to speak with a lawyer that has experience handling similar cases to learn more about their legal options.
