Serious Injuries to Children

Every year, thousands of children across the United States suffer serious injuries or death resulting from preventable falls, poisoning, bites and stings, burns, and more. These catastrophic injuries and losses take an emotional and financial toll on families who must simultaneously cope with the harm to their child and navigate the complex legal proceedings that follow. 

Brown, Goldstein & Levy has an extensive record of successfully representing seriously injured children and their parents. We have experience working alongside families in cases dealing with: 

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Drownings and near-drownings
  • Poisonings and toxic exposures
  • Child sexual abuse 
  • Suffocation 
  • Fire and burns
  • Dog bites
  • Defective products
  • Youth sports injuries

Our personal injury attorneys recognize that no settlement or verdict can mend the heartbreak that comes from the loss of a child or from a child’s serious injuries. We work alongside families and guardians from consultation to resolution to offer the resources necessary to hold  accountable the people, institutions, or companies responsible for their child’s injury or death. Our multidisciplinary team of trial lawyers have the experience critical to performing a thorough investigation, building a compelling case, and securing the best possible outcome.
