Do You Need An Experienced Child Injury Attorney In Seattle?
There is nothing worse for parents to hear that their child has been harmed in any way. Unfortunately, children are injured at an alarming rate. As a matter of fact, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) confirms that approximately one in every six children in the United States have to visit the Emergency Room at least once a year. Considering that a large number of these visits, especially during the period between April and September, are related to personal injuries, children are regularly put in situations that end up putting them at risk.
When a child sustains an injury due to negligence, the at-fault parties aren’t always held liable simply because the parents aren’t even aware they have options. That’s why we are here, to give parents and guardians the help they need.

What Accidents Can Lead To Child Injuries?
Children are often active and unaware that certain activities may cause them harm, that is why they are often vulnerable. For that and other reasons, children suffer injuries that are sometimes serious.
When accidents happen under the supervision of an adult or in an area that is under the care of a third party, that means that the parties at fault may have failed to take the proper safety precautions necessary to ensure the safety and well being of the child.
If you’re in Seattle and your child was injured, rest assured that our Bernard Law Group attorneys can handle the full range of child injury claims in the great state of Washington.
Many of the child injury cases we oversee involve the following types of incidents:

While this is an extensive list of potential accidents and scenarios, there are many more accidents involving children that can lead to injuries.
What Are The Most Common Child Injuries?
Just as accident types may vary, injuries children sustain also vary.
Here at Bernard Law Group, we see a great deal of accidents involving children that result in a number of injuries. However, it is safe to say that there are certain injuries that are more common than others. That is due to the fact that children’s bodies often sustain more bruises in a car accident than adults’ do. Additionally, children are often faced with levels of emotional pain and stress that require professional help, sometimes, well into the future.
When negligence leads to an accident involving a child, the most common injuries and/or results are:
- Broken/Fractured bones;
- Animal bites/Stings;
- Traumatic brain injury;
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD);
- Wrongful death.

Child Injury Care Is Expensive
Americans spend billions on medical care for children due to injuries every year. With inflation and the cost of everything going up, there is no question about it: medical spending will only go up.
If your child is injured, his or her medical bills can pile up pretty fast. In certain accidents, the at-fault party could be found liable, meaning that the costs of your child’s medical bills would have to be covered by them. Depending on the situation, our attorneys could help you pursue a series of means to help you and your child recover. In the tragic event of an accident that results in death, the victim’s family could also pursue a wrongful death claim. Whatever the case, our team of attorneys is ready to answer your questions.
