Injuries to Children

A severely injured child needs specialized legal assistance.

As the parent of injured child, you are suddenly forced to deal with difficult and sometimes tragic circumstances. You need clear information and answers to many questions.


Just as a severely injured child needs specialized medical care, he or she also needs specialized legal attention. Some legal issues that you and your child may face include:


  • assessments and supports to assist in return to school and normal function
  • funding for future care needs and medical attention
  • funding for sensitive respite care while respecting your child’s need for consistency and sense of safety
  • funding to address the unique psychological impacts on children compared to injured adults, requiring specialized assessments
  • assessment of your child’s lost income earning potential
  • planning care giving for your child when you can no longer provide the care
  • mandatory court approval of settlement amounts for your child
  • access to and supervision of settlement funds throughout your child’s life
  • the challenge of dealing with modern family arrangements
  • the impact on ongoing relationships with siblings and the rest of your family
  • compensation to you for care and lost income while caring for your child

Their strength comes from the roots of truth and honesty and with that honesty they built support for us. When an agreement was reached at mediation, we celebrated the end of a four-year journey. At the same time, I knew I would miss the ongoing support, caring approach and cheerful competence that greeted my calls every time I had a question or concern.
