Injuries to Children
A compassionate attorney recognizes that a serious injury to a child is one of the most devastating tragedies that can affect your family. When that injury is the result of someone else’s negligence, that makes it even more difficult to bear.
Whether your child was injured by a toy, on a playground, by a doctor, or in a car accident, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you hold the negligent party accountable.
When a Child’s Injuries Result from Medical Malpractice
Negligent doctors, hospitals, and other entities can and should be held liable for causing harm such as:
- bacterial infections;
- pneumococcal infections;
- strep infections; and
- traumatic brain injury.
Many parties may be held liable in a medical malpractice case. An attorney can conduct investigations, gather evidence, and apply Ohio law to your case. Chris Mellino welcomes you to contact our Cleveland office with any questions you may have about an injury, liability, or the state’s statute of limitations.
When Childhood Injuries Result from a Defective Product
In the last year alone, dozens of cribs, beds, toys, high chairs, and strollers have been recalled, citing fire and burn hazards, choking hazards, and parts that can cause injuries.
When products that were designed specifically for children cause a child harm, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer, distributor, and/or retailer.
If your child was injured due to a defective product, contact us today for a free consultation.
