Child Personal Injury Claim-Dallas/Fort Worth Texas Attorneys
An injury to a child can be especially upsetting. As parents, we work hard to keep children safe, recognizing that children are especially vulnerable because of their size and lack of sophistication. Furthermore, a serious injury to a child can have lifelong physical or emotional results. A traumatic brain injury in a child can leave the child disabled when his or her life has barely begun. As a parent myself I understand firsthand that our precious little one’s are the irreplaceable. They are the most innocent of victims and this law office works to protect that innocence.
Parents, teachers and other adults in children’s lives have a special responsibility to keep children safe. Nonetheless, there can be risks in some of children’s most common activities. For younger children, inadequate supervision or defective playground equipment can result in a child safety playground hazard injury. Broken or poorly maintained equipment can cause injuries that go beyond skinned knees, including broken bones and head injuries. Older kids and teens participating in school or organized sports activities are vulnerable to a child sports injury, which can include head injuries. A traumatic brain injury in a child can change that child’s life forever, putting an end to all the scholastic and sporting activities the child has ever known.

In some ways, a child personal injury claim is easier than a similar claim would be for an adult. Minors, especially younger children, are considered less responsible for understanding their actions than adults would be. For example, land owners may be held responsible for allowing an “attractive nuisance” on their land that injures a trespassing child, even though adult trespassers would have almost no legal rights. The law presumes that adults participating in contact sports understand the risks, but gives adult coaches and teachers the responsibility to prevent a child sports injury or a child safety playground hazard injury.
The law office of Coby L. Wooten takes special care with child personal injury claims, because I understand how traumatic a child’s injury can be for the entire family.

I fight for the family’s right to fair compensation for these and other injuries, helping them get the care the child needs. Based in Fort Worth, I represent clients throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area and all of Texas.
