Protecting Injured Children In Oakville and Richmond Hill Areas
Children are most commonly hurt through improper supervision or improper training of staff trusted to care for them. However, serious injuries can also be caused by defective products, vehicles and negligent medical professionals. Whether your child has suffered a serious dog bite or slip-and-fall at a friend’s house, spinal injury in a sports accident, or birth injury because of medical malpractice, we want to be there to help you.
Claiming Damages For Childhood Injuries
The lawyers at Bougadis, Chang LLP Barristers have experience dealing with lawsuits against institutions and people trusted with the welfare of children. We also have experience with the unique features of litigating on behalf of children, i.e. minors.
Serious injuries to children, especially permanent ones that result in the need for lifelong care, can be difficult to quantify. When adults are injured, our calculations for damages include comparing their pre- and post-injury abilities and earning capacities. With children, that is not possible.
As we calculate damages for your child, we will work with medical and rehabilitation professionals, as well as teachers and other educational experts, psychologists and social workers who can help us quantify the effects of your child’s injury on his or her life. These experts can also help your child’s recovery process and give you the support you need as a parent.
Our lawyers for child accidents and injuries in Toronto, Southern Ontario, Richmond Hill and Oakville have experience helping parents through this difficult time. For more information on how we can help you and your child, contact Bougadis, Chang LLP Barristers at 416-703-2402.
