When to Call an Attorney
Injuries to children can be catastrophic. Children can end up with permanent disabilities, scarring, disfigurement and severe emotional distress from traumatic incidents. Hiring an attorney to represent your family during a child injury claim in Texas can help you hold a party responsible for your child’s significant losses. If the insurance company is offering a lowball settlement, a lawyer can negotiate for a higher amount on your behalf. Your lawyer can take the case to trial for you while you concentrate on your child’s wellbeing.

Do You Have the Elements of a Lawsuit?
Not all injuries to children give parents the right to file civil lawsuits in Texas. The civil justice system requires most plaintiffs to establish certain elements as more likely to be true than not true. These elements are that someone owed your child a specific duty of care, breached this duty of care (was negligent) and caused your child’s injuries.
You or your personal injury lawyer must also prove that your child suffered compensable damages because of the defendant’s negligence, such as physical injuries, emotional distress or lost quality of life. These are the basic elements of a standard child injury claim. Some types of lawsuits, however, such as strict product liability lawsuits, do not require proof of negligence. Speak to an attorney for the facts about your unique case.
