As a parent, it's important that you set proper safety precautions for your child, but when others chauffeur your child, they are responsible for ensuring safe arrival. Children are precious cargo, but car accidents happen, and when they occur, you want to ensure your child's safety and future are secure. Our child accident lawyers provide representation for minors who have been injured in vehicle accidents, including:
- Car Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Bus Accidents
- Boating Accidents
- Life-Altering Injuries
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Premises Liability
- Pedestrian Accidents
When a car accident involving a child occurs, it's important to discover the cause of the accident. Accidents caused by driver error — such as accidents involving hit-and-runs, texting, and drunk driving — can have serious consequences. Further, it's important to establish that the child was wearing recommended safety restraints, whether it be a seatbelt, car seat or child booster seat. Don't let a car accident ruin your child's future — contact our law firm.
When it comes to children, a lot can happen in the blink of an eye. As an adult, it's easy to see danger lurking at every corner with playground injuries, school injuries, animal bites, negligent security, slip-and-fall accidents, safety code violations, swimming pool accidents and even unsafe stairwell conditions. It's common for children when playing to scrape a knee or elbow or even have a bad fall from a slide, but when injuries are caused by the negligence of a landlord, property manager, owner or security, then it's time to take action.
If your child has been injured on another person's property due to negligence, contact The Galione Law Firm, P.A.
When you purchase an item for your child, you expect it to be safe! However, there are many cases of products that were created for use with children that have caused harm. Product liability for children items can include:
- Defective Toys
- Defective Equipment
- Food Poisoning
- Product Recalls (including safety gear, toys, and equipment)
- Vehicle Defects
If a product you purchased has caused an injury during typical use, then you need a child injury lawyer on your side. Manufacturers, marketers, designers and even distributors can be held accountable for errors and negligence when creating, marketing and distributing a product, whether it is a toy, crib, car seat or stroller. In addition, vehicle defects put your entire family at risk, so it's important to know how to state your claim and win the fight.

Even at birth, children can be at risk for injury if a doctor, nurse, administrator or staff member becomes negligent. Birth injuries such as Erb's Palsy and Cerebral Palsy can be avoided, so if your infant has been diagnosed with one of these birth injuries, it's important to contact a personal injury lawyer with a focus on children. We expect that the medical professionals we see are adept and focused on the issue at hand. But when administrators are lax in hiring practices, or staff members become overworked, mistakes can happen — and those mistakes can lead to infection, disease, disablements and even death.
