Injuries to Children
A compassionate Cleveland attorney recognizes that a serious injury to a child is one of the most devastating tragedies that can affect your family. When the injury is the result of someone else’s negligence, that makes it even more devastating.
Whether your child was injured on a playground, by a doctor or in an auto accident in Ohio, you may be able to hold the negligent party accountable with the help of a Cleveland attorney.
Our lawyers at the Mellino Robenalt, LLC understand the anger, frustration and concerns you may have after your child has suffered a serious injury. We will review your case and, if appropriate, help you take steps to pursue compensation through an injury claim, injury trial, or fair medical malpractice settlements.
You should consult with a Cleveland attorney as soon as possible if your child has suffered a head injury on a playground or if a defective car seat failed to restrain the child in an auto accident in Ohio. You can trust the Mellino Robenalt, LLC to advocate for your legal rights and your child’s rights.
When Child Injuries Result from Medical Malpractice
We have a track record of pursuing fair injury trial verdicts and medical malpractice settlements for our injured clients, many of them children. Although no amount of compensation can cure some debilitating injuries or replace a child’s life, it can help you send a message that negligence will not be tolerated.
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.
Since there are many parties that may be held accountable in medical malpractice cases, you need a Cleveland attorney to conduct investigations, gather evidence, and apply Ohio law to your case. This is a time-consuming and highly specified task and likely not something you would not want to attempt on your own, particularly as you cope with the realities of the injury or loss.
When Child Injuries Result from Defective Products
Like medical malpractice, defective products can also cause serious injuries. Injuries can arise from unstable cribs, small toy parts that could detach and be swallowed, or furniture coated with lead paint.
When products that were designed specifically for children cause them harm, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer, distributor and/or retailer.
As a parent, you take many measures to keep your children safe, but when someone else’s negligence causes an injury that easily could have been prevented, you have the right to hold them accountable. Contact us today for a free consultation – 440-333-3800.
