Child Injury Claim Lawyers Mount Vernon

It is always sad when anyone gets hurt, but it is especially heartbreaking when it happens to a child. Kids are pretty resilient to injuries. They bounce back quickly from broken bones, bumps, and bruises. But this isn’t always the case and sometimes very serious injuries can be overlooked in children. Injuries to children can have complex and life-long consequences for the child and the rest of the family. When kids are involved, injury claims can become very complex and many of the rules that apply to adult claims are simply not applicable to a minor’s claim.

Steve Hanagan and Brian McGovern have over 50 years of concentrated experience handling nothing but personal injury, disability, and death claims.  It is the only work we do.  Want to know more about our firm?

Has your child been injured because someone else was careless?

Kids get hurt in a lot of different ways. Some of the more serious injuries we have seen come from:

  • ATV – 3-wheeler and 4 wheeler accidents
  • Being struck by a car or motorcycle
  • Being an occupant in a vehicle
  • Falling from a trampoline
  • Inattentive guardians not watching over the child
  • Drowning
  • Fireams
  • Being allowed to engage in activities for adults
  • careless daycare workers

Was an adult was supposed to be looking after your child when they were injured?  Was your child hurt when someone else was at fault? If someone caused an injury to your child they may be at-fault for the accident.  We routinely investigate injuries to children and work with these types of insurance claims on a daily basis.  We can help you recover for your child’s injuries and solve the common problems that arise in these injury claims.

Did you know that a minor’s estate has to be setup with the court to handle money paid for a child’s injuries?  We handle this, and the entire personal injury process and will make sure that your child achieves the best possible result for their injuries.

We know that this is probably your first experience with an injury claim and we want to make it as simple as possible for you. You should also know that we do not get paid unless you win. If we don’t recover for you, you won’t owe us anything. So, you never need to worry about paying for an experienced accident attorney when your efforts should be focused on helping your child get better from their injuries.

For whatever reason someone else may have been at fault for hurting your child, you need an experienced attorney to handle the  claim. We have been handling these types of cases for over 50 years. In fact, injury, disability, and death claims are the only work we do. You can trust us to provide the help you need.
