Representing Children Who Have Suffered Serious Injuries
One of the most solemn responsibilities for any firm is to represent the interests of injured children. At Abramson & O'Connell, LLC. we believe it is one of the highest callings of our profession. A successful recovery of compensation can make a great difference in a child’s life after an injury.
We have had the honor of being entrusted to represent the rights of infants and toddlers, as well as school-aged children, who suffered serious injuries because of the negligence or wrongful conduct of others.
Birth injuries can occur during labor and delivery and can be the result of a doctor’s, nurse’s or another health care professional’s negligence. Serious birth injuries can include:
- Brain damage
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy and other forms of paralysis
- Spinal cord damage
- Infant hematoma
- Organ damage
Brain Injuries And Spinal Cord Injuries
Half a million children each year suffer serious brain injuries and spinal cord injuries as a result of some type of accident. These injuries can be life-altering for both the child and family. Some of the causes of brain and spinal cord injuries in children include:
- Birth injuries
- Surgical errors
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Defective products
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Playground accidents
Burn injuries can be tragically painful and disfiguring, especially when they happen to children. Sometimes these injuries occur because of the fault of a negligent driver, defective product or wrongdoing on the part of a health care professional. When we undertake such cases, we understand the compassion that is needed for the child as well as the vision we must have for the child’s future medical needs. Professionals such as plastic surgeons help us project financial needs over time.
