HOW WAS YOUR CHILD HURT?

Child injury claims in Texas can occur in any of the following situations:

Car Accident — If your child was a passenger in a car and was injured as a result of a crash, you may be legally entitled to seek compensation for their losses from the at-fault party.

 

Child Care Accidents — If your child was in the care of another person or was at daycare and injured due to the conditions of the daycare facility or lack of supervision, you may have a claim for negligence.

Attractive Nuisance — An attractive nuisance is something that is attractive to a child and entices them into a condition that is dangerous for the child. Attractive nuisance examples can include machinery, swimming pools, lakes, boats, cars, and animals.


Negligent Supervision — Negligent supervision cases often arise in a daycare facility or where another person was responsible for the care of your child. If your child was injured while in the care of another person because that person failed to exercise reasonable care and control over the child, you may be able to recover damages for your child’s injuries.


School Accidents — If your child was injured at school as a result of another person’s negligence, you may be able to recover damages for their injuries. These injuries can include slip and fall on school property, school bus accidents, or sports-related accidents. However, since many schools are public institutions, the negligent party would likely be subject to the government liability rules in child injury cases. This means, if a child has been injured at a public school, notice must be provided to the governmental entity within 180 days of the cause of action.


Child Abuse — If your child was in the care of another person and suffered sexual assault, physical abuse, or emotional abuse, your child may be entitled to recover damages for the injuries they sustained as a result of the abuse.

Our firm works on a contingency fee basis. This means that you will pay us nothing unless we win your case.

ELEMENT OF A CHILD INJURY LAWYER IN TEXAS

A negligence lawsuit for your child’s injuries will be based on the following elements:

 

Duty — The negligent party must have had a duty to exercise reasonable care, as measured by an ordinary person’s standard. This duty varies depending on your child’s situation and the individual who was negligent in causing your child’s injuries.


Breach — The negligent party must have breached their duty of care for your child by committing some act or by failing to act in a certain way.


Causation — The negligent party’s breach of their duty must have been an actual and proximate cause of your child’s injuries.


Damages — Your child must have also suffered some type of compensable injury as a result of the negligent party’s breach.


Additionally, your attorney will have to prove the preceding elements by a preponderance of the evidence in order to recover damages for your child’s injuries. A preponderance of the evidence is a burden of proof at trial that is satisfied if the evidence weighs more in your favor than not, or if 51% of the evidence is in your favor.

You May Wonder...

 

...WILL MY CHILD'S CASE GO TO COURT?

The truth is, around 80% of our injury and accident lawsuits don't actually make it to trial. Defendants and their insurance companies are aware of our track record and award-winning recoveries and often offer our child-clients maximum compensation levels once liability is established. In most cases, our attorneys are able to resolve the legal matter for full and maximum compensation without having to file a lawsuit. However, if negotiations breaks down or liability is not accepted, an attorney will file the lawsuit to initiate Discovery. Oftentimes, an attorney will take depositions while still preventing the Defendant from being able to interview the child. If the case is not later resolved in mediation, the case could go to trial.
