When A Day Of Fun Turns Tragic

Injuries to children can take many forms and occur in places that should maintain the highest standards of safety.

  • Learning to ride a bike in a park or at their home is a key moment in the life of child. However, the accomplishment can turn into tragedy when an inattentive or impaired driver collides with the child.
  • Placing a child in a car seat built to protect him or her is an effective safety measure should an accident occur. Yet, a defect in any area of the seat, specifically the restraint to secure the child, can result in serious injuries that can change and end lives.
  • Day care centers must adhere to strict state regulations and undergo periodic inspections. A facility that falls short of the basic standards can put children at risk of serious injury.
  • Drowning accidents caused by defective pool equipment or negligent staff (in a public pool) can result in non-fatal brain injuries and fatalities.
  • Poorly maintained vehicles and negligent drivers place children and other passengers in danger of serious injuries and death in school bus accidents.
