The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identifies some of the most common accidental injuries affecting babies and toddlers as follows:
- Burn injuries
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Child passenger accidents
- Dog bites
- Water-related accidents
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Accidental poisoning
- Traffic accidents
If your child aged 0-4 was seriously injured, you naturally want to find out why and how — and you want to know how you can help him or her recover or adapt as fully as possible. A baby or toddler who suffers a catastrophic injury will have a vastly different future than a noninjured child will have. Parents normally do anything and everything they can to lovingly raise a small child with special needs, regardless of injury or illness. However, care needs may increase over time as a seriously injured child grows, rather than decreasing. Therapy, disability accommodations and special education or tutoring are overwhelmingly expensive for many families.
Perhaps you believe you should simply report your child's injury to an insurance company and expect to be properly compensated. In fact, insurance claims adjusters work hard to limit the pay out of benefits to people who have been injured. As they strive to protect their financial assets, Allison & Ward, L.L.P., fights on behalf of injured babies and toddlers and their families. We aggressively pursue maximum compensation when we handle cases of accidents involving babies and injuries to toddlers in Austin or elsewhere.
