Seeking Compensation for Your Child’s Injuries
Kids love bikes – from a bigwheel to a ten-speed. But even with the necessary safety gear and careful supervision, accidents can happen. A child can be hit by a vehicle in split seconds, and experience broken bones, bruises, or unthinkable injuries. When someone else is at fault it’s almost too much to bear.
Even if it seems that the facts are clear, and the accident was caused by someone else, there is a legal process in filing a personal injury claim. Legal processes are complex and negotiating with the insurance companies – even if criminal charges were filed against the responsible party – can be traumatizing to all involved. This isn’t the time to go it alone, and take on a big company yourself that is in the business of saving itself money.
Filing a claim when there are major injuries or losses, or when a child is badly hurt, is a complicated, emotional affair. Added to all the other things you’re going through, now you have frustration – frustration from the insurance companies giving you the run around. Frustration in the amount offered. Frustration as the medical bills start to come in and you wonder how you’ll be able to pay them. Don’t wait to call Bill Coats so that he can take care of this process for you, and negotiate a higher settlement than you would alone. He won’t take your case if he doesn’t have a strong sense that he can. Contact him immediately to learn if you have a case against the at-fault parties.
How Much Money Is My Child Owed?
While all personal injury cases are unique, there are ways to estimate what you may be able to recover. It will be based on the figures of economic and non-economic losses that came from your child’s accident. Damages can include:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost wages of your own, as you take time away from your job to care for your dependent child
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
- Mental anguish
- Funeral and burial costs
