INJURY TO CHILD / MINOR
CLAXTON LAW GROUP extends their legal experiences to serve clients of all types and sizes, including children. Children are life’s most precious gift and when a child is injured, it impacts the whole family. An injury to a child presents special challenges not faced by adults. The child may not be old enough to adequately describe how the injury occurred. Investigation of the incident is essential when a child is involved to determine how the child was injured. The child may also lack the communication skills necessary to describe the pain he/she is feeling and the injury suffered. This makes proper medical care a key element in ensuring that the child makes a full recovery. Children are very resilient and often recover quickly from injuries. However, sometimes the extent of damage will not present itself until years to come because the child is still developing and growing. This makes getting good medical care for the child all the more important.
