Sacramento Child Injury Attorney
The Hard Reality of Children’s Injuries
If you are a parent, then you know that few events in life are more traumatic than an injury to your child. We’re supposed to protect our children; keep them safe. When they get hurt, no matter how many precautions we take, the notion that we can keep them safe is shaken.
If your child has been injured, the only thing you want is your child to be made whole again. If the accident was someone else’s fault, you may feel angry and upset, or you may be grieving. To say the least, the emotions can be overwhelming.
During this difficult time, the Sacramento attorneys at Demas Law Group are here to help you make the best possible decisions in the interest of your injured child. We have successfully helped clients with injured children for more than 20 years.
When Injuries Happen to Children in Sacramento
In California, anyone from a newborn to 18 years of age is legally considered a child. As a society, we recognize children are different than adults and require our care and supervision. When children are unintentionally injured, whether it’s an infant or a high school athlete, the physical and mental effects of the accident can have more far-reaching consequences than they might for grown-ups. If you have unfortunately lost your child in an accident, you must bear different but equally or more difficult consequences. As incalculable as such losses may seem, if someone else is at fault, they are required by law to compensate you.
We put a tremendous amount of confidence in the many people responsible for keeping our children safe. We expect baby sitters to protect and check on sleeping infants. Daycare providers are supposed to protect toddlers from falling and burn injuries. Dog owners must keep their pets leashed. The bus driver is supposed to get our kids to school safely. Schools are required to properly supervise sporting activities. Drivers have to follow the rules of the road. We expect manufacturers of everything from toys to bicycles to automobiles to sell us products that aren’t defective and dangerous to our kids.
When those expectations are not met, a trust is broken, and all too often, children get hurt and even die. You thought you had an agreement. Your child was going to be kept safe. But your child wasn’t kept safe, and now your world has been turned upside down. The experienced child injury attorneys at Demas Law Group can help you turn the world right side up again.
