Damages for Children Injured by Defective Toys

When it comes to defective products, a child’s injuries are often the tip of the iceberg. The physical, emotional, and financial impact can be overwhelming for the entire family. Pursuing a legal claim for damages can provide much-needed compensation to help cover these burdens. Here are the types of damages that can be sought for children injured by defective toys:

Medical Expenses

Emergency room visits, hospital stays, surgeries, doctor’s appointments, medications, physical therapy, and any future medical treatments can be factored into your settlement. This ensures the injured child receives the care they need without financially damaging the family.

Pain and Suffering

It’s hard to imagine assigning a dollar figure to your child’s pain, but this kind of compensation can account for the distress and discomfort the child experiences due to the injury. This can include chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and other emotional traumas that impact the child’s quality of life.

Parental Lost Wages

Parents often need to take time off work to care for an injured child, attend medical appointments, or handle legal matters. Compensation for parental lost wages addresses the income parents lose as a result of their child’s injury.
