Types of Child Injury in Queens
There are minor bumps and bruises, such as a scraped knee, and then there are more serious injuries. While children can bounce back from injuries more easily than adults, it doesn’t mean they can’t be badly hurt. Their bodies are still growing, and some injuries can alter their growth patterns.
Accidents that result in an injury to a child can leave them with trauma, pain, and even disability that can last a lifetime. These accidents include:
- Sports accidents
- Playground accidents
- Lead poisoning
- Food poisoning
- Burns and exposures to toxic chemicals
- Dog bites/animal attacks (51% of dog bite victims are children)
- Defective products, such as child safety seats
- Negligent supervision/security
- Vehicular accidents (car, bus, bicycle)
- Medical malpractice, including failure to diagnose
Because children are vulnerable and trusting, they may also fall victim to sexual abuse by caretakers, teachers, and others in charge.
Causes of Child Injuries
Like many accidents, child injuries are frequently due to negligence. Children don’t always recognize the dangers and possible consequences of their actions, particularly if they don’t have adult supervision.
Some of the most common places where children are injured include:
- Daycare and other childcare facilities
- School buses
- After-school activities (i.e., sporting practices)
- Private property, such as a home
- Other public places, i.e., retail stores
Children can be injured just about anywhere, especially if they are not supervised by someone charged with their care.
What Kinds of Injuries Do Children Suffer?
Children suffer many of the same injuries as adults, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Bone fractures and breaks
- Crush injuries
- Emotional trauma
- Head and neck injuries
- Internal injuries
- Whiplash and concussions
- Soft tissue damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Skull fractures
These injuries can leave growing children with cognitive impairment and other injuries that may not be immediately obvious. Because they are still growing and developing, an accident may also inhibit a child’s physical development.
Many children suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries. If your child has been seriously hurt, our Queens child injury lawyers can help you hold the liable parties responsible.
