Injuries to Children

No one wants to think about their child getting injured. Unfortunately, though, accidents do happen, and sometimes the people and institutions we trust to care for our children are negligent — or worse. 

While we hope that your child never experiences a significant injury, especially due to someone else's negligence, you should know what to do if your child is hurt in an accident.

Personal Injury Law and Injuries to Children in Georgia

When adults are entrusted with the care of children, they owe a duty to keep those children safe and to provide a secure environment for them. As a parent, you wish that you could be in all places at all times for your kids, but it simply isn't possible. Thus, you must be able to safely leave your children in the care of others, be it at school, with babysitters, and/or at other institutions outside the home. 

Types of Serious Injuries to Children 

At McAleer Law, our Atlanta child abuse attorneys know that bad things can and do happen. Many unfortunate injuries and trauma can result from negligent care, including:

  • Suffocation
  • Amputation
  • Concussions
  • Skull injuries
  • Bone fractures

Client Testimonials
"I went to Charles after I was hit in a car accident last year. He, and especially his paralegals, were very considerate and actually cared about me. They helped me BIG time..My settlement was way more than I could even imagine. They are great about keeping you in the loop and getting your case done fast." Lauren
“Charles handled a personal injury suit that was primarily for symptoms that were not simple to demonstrate to the jury. Throughout the case Charles was professional and well prepared. We won an excellent settlement for this type of case.” Cindy
“After my case was turned down by several firms, I asked Mr. McAleer to review my case. He did, and he thought he could win it. The insurance company did not offer me one dime, even at trial and after the jury was deliberating. The Gwinnett jury returned a verdict in my favor for $300,000. I was in tears. I will always be thankful to Mr. McAleer for believing in my case and in me.” R.S.
