Arizona Child Injury Attorneys

Across Arizona, caregivers are charged with taking care of our children. Whether it is daycare, elementary school, high school, or organized sports, there are organizations responsible for the safety and well-being of children while in their custody. Unfortunately, child injuries away from the home are common, and when they happen, it’s always the care of the child that must take priority.

The first step in protecting children from accidents is for adults to create a safe environment. This includes ensuring that all areas where children play are free of potential hazards, such as exposed electrical cords, sharp objects, and other potential hazards. It’s also important to ensure that any toys or play equipment used by children are age-appropriate and in good working condition.

Adults caring for small children must be aware of potential hazards in the environment, such as open flames, slippery surfaces, or sharp objects. It’s their responsibility to take the necessary steps to reduce these hazards, such as installing smoke alarms, covering sharp edges, and using non-slip mats in bathrooms.

Sports organizations need to also be aware of the physical activities that children are engaging in, and ensure that they are supervised at all times. This includes ensuring they wear proper safety equipment, that they understand the risks involved with certain activities, and that they have an emergency contact in case of an accident.

We trust adults who take care of our children to play a critical role in protecting them from accidents. It’s the responsibility of adults to create a safe environment for children, be aware of potential hazards in the environment, supervise children at all times, and inform them on how to stay safe.

If your child has been injured by the negligence of someone charged with their care, call the Arizona child injury attorneys at Torgenson Law to find out how you can get justice for your child’s pain and suffering.

Common Injuries Children Sustain in Arizona

Accidents are an unfortunate part of childhood. They can range from minor scrapes and bruises to more serious injuries. Unfortunately, children are more likely to sustain injuries in an accident than adults due to their smaller size, lack of experience, and inability to recognize dangerous situations. Here are some of the most common injuries that children sustain in accidents.

  • Head injuries. One of the most serious injuries that children can suffer from an accident is a head injury. Head injuries can range from simple bumps and bruises to more severe concussions or skull fractures. It is important to take any head injury seriously, as the effects can be long-lasting and even life-threatening.
  • Broken bones. Children are especially prone to broken bones due to their growing bodies. In an accident, the force of the impact can cause bones to fracture and break. Common fracture sites include the arms and legs, as well as the collarbone and ribs, and jaw.
  • Lacerations. Lacerations are cuts that can be caused by sharp objects or even the impact of an accident. These cuts can range from minor scrapes to deep gashes that require stitches. If lacerations are not treated properly when they first occur, it could lead to infection and further health complications.
  • Sprains and strains. Sprains and strains are caused by the overstretching or tearing of ligaments, tendons, or muscles. In children, these injuries can occur from a fall, overexertion, or even during sports. They can be painful and can limit movement until they are healed.
  • Burns. Burns are another common injury that children can sustain from an accident. Burns can range from mild to severe depending on the source of the heat and need to be treated immediately to prevent infection and further damage.
  • Psychological trauma. Symptoms of psychological trauma after an accident can include fear, anxiety, depression, nightmares, hypervigilance, and avoidance of reminders of the accident. It is important for parents to watch for signs of psychological trauma and provide support to their children during and after the accident to help them cope and heal.

Accidents are a fact of life, but you shouldn’t have to worry that your child is being placed at risk by negligent adults or organizations. If your child has been injured in an accident due to the negligence of others, you have the right to seek compensation for the pain and suffering. Call our Arizona child injury attorneys to discuss your case and learn how you can get justice for your child.

Common Causes of Child Injuries in Arizona

Childhood injuries can be a major concern for parents, as they can cause long-term physical and emotional damage to a child. Knowing the most common causes of childhood injuries can help parents take preventive measures and promote a safe environment for their children.

  • Falls. Falls are the leading cause of nonfatal injuries among children. Most falls occur when children are climbing on furniture or playing around on playground equipment. To prevent falls, it’s important to keep furniture and other potentially dangerous objects out of reach of children and to set up safety barriers or padding around playground equipment.
  • Vehicle accidents. Motor vehicle accidents are the second most common cause of childhood injuries. Children who ride in buses or in organization vehicles are at a higher risk of being injured.
  • Sports-related injuries. Sports and recreation-related accidents are also a major cause of childhood injuries. Equipment, such as helmets and knee pads, should be worn while participating in sports and recreational activities. Additionally, children need to be properly supervised while participating in sports activities.
  • Poisoning. Accidental poisoning is a common cause of childhood injuries. It’s important for teachers and caregivers to keep all potentially dangerous substances, such as household cleaners and medications, out of the reach of children.
