When Your Child Has Been Injured Or Killed In An Accident


When a child is injured or killed in an accident caused by negligence, parents are often emotionally distraught and unsure about the best course of action. Aside from seeking immediate medical attention for the injuries your child has suffered, contacting an experienced attorney is the best way for you to protect your and your child’s rights.

It is not something many parents want to think about, but millions of children are injured every year, and many of these children face a lifetime of permanent disabilities and/or chronic pain as a result. Sadly, two dozen children die every day in the United States as a result of unintended injuries. Parents try their best to protect their children, but there are simply too many factors beyond their control. Children are often injured or killed as a result of negligence, whether they were riding in a motor vehicle, playing with a defective toy, bitten by a dog in the park or walking to school.

In this difficult time, it is important to have the guidance of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney. Don’t let an insurance company pressure you into accepting a low settlement offer before you have spoken with an attorney and fully understand your and your child’s legal rights. Insurance companies are guided mainly by profit, not your best interests.

If your child has been injured or killed due to negligence, consult an experienced Oklahoma injury attorney to discuss your legal options and seek the compensation you and your child deserve.
