We Manage Child Injury Cases Stemming from These Incidents on Long Island

When your child suffers injuries because of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to pursue compensation based on the resulting injuries, expenses, and losses. This is possible through a liability insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit in county court.

We help families whose children have suffered injuries due to:

  • Traffic collisions
  • Dog bites
  • Falls
  • Swimming pool incidents
  • Trampolines
  • Other premises liability incidents
  • Medical malpractice

If your child was hurt on someone else’s property whether in a private home, business, or public building or in a crash, you could have a case against the property owner or at-fault party.

Our Long Island Law Firm Advocates for Grieving Families

Unfortunately, children sometimes pass away from the injuries they suffer in negligence-related incidents. When this occurs, the parents still have a right to seek and recover fair compensation. However, this is no longer a personal injury lawsuit. Instead, they would pursue a wrongful death case against the liable party.

The rules for filing wrongful death cases vary somewhat from personal injury cases, but our attorneys build and pursue these cases similarly. We still need to investigate what happened, gather evidence to show how negligence occurred, identify the liable party, calculate your losses, and seek compensation. Our attorneys know how to manage this process while our clients focus on mourning and spending time together.

Just like with personal injury cases, we provide free consultations for families who have lost loved ones. We can assess your case and offer insight into your next steps. We believe in justice and accountability and we intend to fight for it.

Our Team Can Prove the Required Elements of Negligence in Your Injury Case

State law allows victims hurt by negligence to seek compensation from the at-fault parties. Yet, to recover this compensation, we need to show the other party acted carelessly or recklessly, and this caused your child’s injuries. This is known as negligence. There are four elements to negligence:

Duty of Care: A Civil Obligation to Act Reasonably

Drivers, property owners, and doctors all have a duty of care to keep others safe. On highways, all motorists have a duty of care to drive safely and obey traffic signals. Property owners have a duty of care to keep their properties in a reasonably safe condition.

Breach of Duty: Another Party Violates Their Civil Obligation

When another party breaches their duty of care, they put people’s lives at risk. A motorist who drives while intoxicated breaches their duty of care. A property owner who allows a dangerous dog to roam the premises also breaches their duty of care.

Causation: The Other Party’s Actions (or Inaction) Caused Your Child’s Injury

Using evidence, we must show that because another party breached their duty of care, their actions hurt your child. The evidence we use depends on your circumstances.

Damages: Recoverable Losses

The final element of proving negligence requires must show that because your child suffered harm, you have various losses stemming from their injuries.

Proving negligence can get complicated, especially if you’ve never filed an injury claim or understand state law. That’s where our legal advocates come in. We’re committed to proving negligence and recovering everything you need to account for your injury-related hardships.

Recoverable Damages in a Child Injury Case on Long Island

Compensable losses, like many other aspects of your case, depend on your situation.

A settlement or court award may offer funds for:

  • Medical treatment and care: Healthcare expenses include the cost of your child’s medical treatment and all related expenses to date, such as the ambulance ride, hospitalization, medications, rehabilitation, and outpatient care.
  • Future care costs: Some children require future medical care or ongoing support after suffering serious injuries. This could include in-home care, therapies, medications, and more. We work with medical experts to understand your child’s anticipated medical needs and how much they’ll cost.
  • Lost income: When a child suffers a serious injury, one or both parents often miss time at work. With long-term injuries, one parent often takes a leave of absence or quits their job to become the child’s full-time caretaker. We can help our clients seek compensation for all lost tips, bonuses, benefits, wages, and other related expenses.
  • Miscellaneous expenses: Some out-of-pocket expenses are recoverable. Keep all receipts for parking, gas for long-distance appointments, items purchased for accessibility, and other related expenses. Any money you spend out of pocket following your child’s injury can factor into your case’s value.
  • Pain and suffering: State law allows victims to seek money for their physical and psychological pain and suffering. We seek compensation for our clients based on their child’s injuries, pain, and suffering.

Our attorneys gather evidence to document each client’s expenses and calculate a fair settlement range for their case. This requires us to collect bills, estimates, receipts, and relevant medical records. We also frequently work with experts.

Our team understands the importance of knowing how much a case might be worth. Victims or parents of victims frequently underestimate the potential value of their claim, fail to understand the value of their intangible losses, or do not include future care costs.

This leaves them paying for future medical care and support out of their pocket, putting their financial stability at risk. Our team seeks to recover fair compensation by calculating the case’s potential value before we start negotiations.

How Much Can I Recover for My Child’s Injury?

There is no one-size-fits-all value for a child injury case on Long Island. Instead, our team needs to examine your recoverable damages and value them accordingly.

This is especially important if the child has catastrophic injuries, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic amputations
  • Hypoxic brain injuries, such as after a drowning incident
  • Serious burns and scarring
  • Serious fractures and crush injuries

Understanding the possible settlement value of a case is important. It allows us to negotiate for a fair payout and know when the insurer makes an offer that falls into an acceptable range. When we calculate the possible settlement in a child injury case, we consider several types of recoverable damages.

You Have a Limited Time to Seek Damages Through a Child Injury Lawsuit

Like other states, there is a deadline for when you must file the initial paperwork to begin your lawsuit. Generally, you have three years to file a suit for injuries. There is a two-year deadline for wrongful death cases.

There are often exceptions that apply in these cases. However, some of them shorten the filing deadline. This is likely if you must sue a municipality or take other legal action against a government agency, for example. Our team manages all time-sensitive aspects of your case, from evidence collection to the statute of limitations. Your lawyer does everything in their power to secure fair compensation from the liable party.

Our Lawyers Pursue Damages From the Liable Party

When our team represents the families of injured children, we handle every aspect of their claims or lawsuits. We want to ensure parents have the time to focus on helping their children recover from their injuries, complete treatment, and undergo rehabilitation. You can count on us to prove negligence occurred, identify the liable party, and build a case against them.

Depending on the facts of your case, we could pursue compensation from:

  • The at-fault driver who caused a crash
  • The negligent driver’s employer, often a trucking company
  • A product manufacturer that made a dangerous or defective product
  • A property owner or occupier
  • A government entity, such as a school district
  • A doctor, clinic, hospital, or another medical care provider

We Intend to Hold the Liable Party Accountable for Your Hardships

We know how these cases work and how to navigate the claims process. We also know how insurance companies try to reduce their payout through unfair practices.

Our team can protect your right to recover fair compensation by:

  • Managing all communications with the involved insurer
  • Refusing any lowball compensation offers
  • Refusing any offers before we calculate your case’s actual value
  • Addressing any bad faith insurance practices
  • Presenting strong evidence to show negligence and liability
  • Reviewing the liable policy
  • Negotiating for what you need

When you hire us to handle your child’s injury case, you can count on us to always put your best interests first. We prepare the case, file the claim, and negotiate for a fair payout. When necessary, we sue the at-fault party and proceed to trial. You always have options when you entrust your case to Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP.

What Should I Do After My Child Suffers Harm on Long Island?

After your child gets hurt, your first priority should be their safety. If you haven’t already done so, take your child to a doctor for an evaluation.

This has two primary goals:

  • A doctor can evaluate your child’s condition and put a treatment plan in motion.
  • The information you get from your child’s healthcare provider can bolster your case. For instance, X-rays of broken bones can show the insurer how severely your child was hurt.

Other post-injury considerations may include:

  • Documenting your injury-related losses by keeping receipts and other information
  • Refusing to give the insurer a recorded statement
  • Taking photos of your child’s external injuries

Your lawyer can give further insight into your next steps.
