Representing Injured Kids For More Than Two Decades
Children are especially vulnerable to accidents and injuries due to their small size and inability to make decisions on their own. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are preventable. If your child has been injured due to the negligence of another person, you may be able to get compensation for his or her unpaid medical bills and pain and suffering.
Since 1998, Connell & Foresta in North Andover has exclusively represented people throughout Massachusetts who have been injured due the carelessness of others. Unlike some other lawyers who only look to the most obvious source of compensation, our attorney will explore every potential source of compensation to ensure that you get the financial support you need.
Seeking Justice For Injured Children
There are many different situations in which a child can suffer life-threatening injuries or wrongful death, including:
- Auto accidents: Children aren’t the only ones who get injured or killed in serious automobile accidents. Our attorney fights to obtain compensation for families who have children injured in car accidents or other motor vehicle accidents. The most tragic cases involve accidents with drunk drivers.
- Premises liability: It is particularly traumatic when a child is hurt on someone else’s property. The most common of these accidents are slip and falls, drowning and other pool-related accidents. Kids are also often injured playing trampolines or playground equipment, or by dog bites and other animal attacks.
- Defective products: Unfortunately many of the child-related products are extremely dangerous. Toys, strollers and various health products can cause illnesses and injuries to children.
- Medical malpractice
- Medical errors: Although medical negligence cases are troubling when they happen to grown-ups, it is especially tragic when children are the victims of birth injuries, mistakes made in prescribing medication or other medical errors.
At Connell & Foresta, we understand the devastation that a child’s injury can have on the entire family. We are committed to seeking justice for injured children and holding the people or product manufacturers that caused your child’s injuries accountable for their negligence. We will pursue a settlement that takes into account your child’s unpaid medical bills, future medical needs, and pain and suffering.
We will take time to calculate the complete cost of your child’s accident to ensure that the settlement you receive will meet your needs now and in the future.
