All children deserve to be safe and to live full lives. But, sometimes, tragedy can befall the family when your child’s innocence is impacted by an unexpected injury. It then falls to the family to deal with the aftermath, which includes arranging for proper treatment to heal from the injury.
If someone else’s negligence is responsible for your child’s injury, you should not have to pay for the medical treatments alone. That’s why our dedicated child injury attorneys work tirelessly to fight on your behalf for the compensation you deserve to receive.
You protect your children, and we protect your interests. HawkLaw’s team of dedicated child injury attorneys understands the unique challenges that arise from child injuries. Your child may not only face illness or injury but there could be long-term implications that follow your child into adulthood.
We want you to know that you don’t have to deal with this trauma on your own. We’ll work tirelessly to earn fair and just compensation from the party or parties responsible for your child’s injury. As a digital-first law firm, you can get your case initiated immediately so we can start fighting for you. Call 888-HAWKLAW today or use our live chat, and we’ll get to work right away!
If your child has been injured, you may be concerned about their time limits to act on a lawsuit. While there are time limits to file personal injury claims, those limitations are less of a concern when your child remains underage.
The clock to file a claim doesn’t begin immediately after the accident. Instead, the time limit won’t start until your child is 18 and can file for themselves. However, as the parent, you have a right to file a claim immediately to fight for compensation to cover medical bills and expenses due to the accident.
Under South Carolina law, you can make a claim for any medical bill incurred to treat your child’s injury or illness. Insurers may try to convince you that you can only recover co-pays for the treatment, but you’re entitled to full compensation.
If the injury leaves debilitating permanent injuries that impact your child’s quality of life, you can make a claim to compensate for the limited abilities your child will have to make a living in the future.
Should the injury be responsible for permanent mental disabilities, you have the right to compensation in support of the mental disability inflicted on your child.
In addition to physical and mental scars, a child’s injury could cause psychological damage as a result of any abnormalities caused by the injury. You can file a claim to cover these types of losses.
Call 888-HAWKLAW or talk to us using our live chat and we’ll get to work right away. You take care of you and we’ll take care of the rest.
Following the first meeting, your dedicated personal injury lawyer will launch your case. We have an investigative team with years of experience identifying what happened, recreating the incident, and collecting any evidence that helps with your case. As a digital-first law firm, you’ll be able to check in on our findings and see how your case is progressing.
Once we have what we need to build a case for your claim, we will contact the insurance company or at-fault party and attempt to negotiate a fair and just compensation for your injuries. Our goal is to do Right By You and agree on a fair and just settlement for your damages, pain, and suffering. If an acceptable settlement can’t be reached, a HawkLaw trial lawyer will advise you about the option of going to court.
