Beaver County Child Injury Attorneys
Hopewell, PA Child Injury Lawyers Serving Individuals in Beaver County
Any accidental injury requires careful analysis with an eye to the future. How long do doctors believe the victim will need treatment, therapy and rehabilitation? What are the person’s prospects for recovering a normal or near-normal lifestyle after a back injury, broken bones or head injury? These are important questions for any injury victim — but often even more critical in the case of an injured child. The Hopewell child injury lawyers at McMillen Urick Tocci & Jones address the special needs of injured children.
Children Face Unique Issues After an Injury
In the case of a dog bite to the face, plastic surgeons may recommend waiting until the child matures more to perform the recommended plastic surgery, especially when the injury affects bones.
Our Hopewell child injury attorneys must also address psychological and social considerations before accepting a settlement offer from an insurer after an accidental injury. Children may suffer taunting from classmates, lowered self-esteem, and limitations on favorite sports activities or career aspirations.
An insightful and sensitive personal injury lawyer at our firm in Beaver County observes extra vigilance and attention to the special issues of children when preparing a claim or lawsuit on behalf of an injured child. We focus on many details such as the following:
- Was your child injured because of a defective car seat?
- Has a playground injury left your child at risk of long-term disability or disfigurement?
- Will a burn injury mean that a child needs skin grafts over a number of years to come?
