Child Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyers
When a child is injured, it's always a tragic event. No parent or guardian ever wants to see their child suffer an injury or death. Unfortunately, children are often injured in accidents that could have been prevented. When this happens, it's essential to seek legal help from a child injury attorney.
If your child or loved one has been hurt due to another person's carelessness, it's prudent to consult a child injury lawyer who is experienced in working with children. Injuries to children present many unique challenges, such as growth implications of the injury (i.e., growth plate involvement) and whether there will be problems in the future from the injury. This is why it's critical for a child’s injury claim to be treated with special attention and care. The child injury attorneys at Maschka, Riedy, Ries & Frentz will treat your child with respect and care in helping you and your family through what can be a frightening experience.

Accidents involving children can be some of the most catastrophic and life-changing events a family can experience.

If your child has been injured in an accident, it's important to seek legal assistance from a qualified personal injury lawyer.
Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney After Your Child's Injury
If your child has been injured in an accident, you may wonder if you should file a personal injury lawsuit on behalf of your child. A personal injury lawyer can help you file a lawsuit against the person or party responsible for the accident. This lawsuit can help you recover the costs of your child's medical bills, therapy, and any other damages your child has suffered due to someone else’s negligence. A child injury attorney will work to get you the maximum amount of compensation possible. Injuries to children can be traumatic for the entire family. The child may suffer physical injuries, but the emotional scars can last a lifetime.

Role of the Caregivers of an Injured Child
Parents of injured children have until the child’s 18th birthday to bring the claim on behalf of their child. Upon turning 18, the child has another year to bring a lawsuit before their claim expires. Even given the extended time allowed by law, it's crucial to thoroughly investigate the circumstances immediately following the injury so that substantial evidence is not lost or forgotten. It's important to note that the statute of limitations may be tolled or paused if the defendant is not properly served. The clock will start ticking again once the defendant has been served.
Injured children can face a long and challenging road to recovery. They have to deal with the physical injuries they have suffered, and they also have to cope with the emotional pain and trauma.
