I pride myself on tirelessly fighting for the injury victims who continuously trust me with their cases. It is an honor to serve and a passion which drives my existence.

The severity of the child car accident injury is a direct factor when you’re seeking reimbursement. Typically, a child’s injuries equal precedent-based amounts pending current and future medical hardship. The reward factors in medical expenses, pain and suffering, and (depending on their age) loss of employment opportunities. It’s important to find a child car accident lawyer that can help you navigate insurance companies and the entire legal process. At the Dixon Injury Firm, we do just that. You can reach out to us today for a free consultation and case review for more information.

Common Injuries Suffered by Children in Car Crashes

While children and adults are both at risk in a collision, children are susceptible to a number of other injuries due to their size. Here are a few of the most common injuries children suffer in accidents:

  • Head, Neck, and Spine Injuries — Everything from concussions and traumatic brain injuries to whiplash are possible. These injuries can lead to temporary or permanent cognitive, behavioral, or developmental problems.
  • Airbag Injuries — If your child is unadvisable in the front seat, he or she is more likely to be injured by airbags. Airbags are known to fracture skulls and break necks and noses.
  • Car Seats — There’s always the chance that a car seat could fail in the case of an accident. Be sure to use safe and modern car suits to minimize the risks.
  • Glass Injuries — Glass from the windshield and windows is a hazard to everyone in a vehicle at the time of a crash. Glass and other sharp objects can cause lifelong scarring.
  • Psychological Difficulties — Along with physical injuries, a child in a car accident is subject to a terrifying psychological event. They may need to receive professional help to recover.

Reimbursement paid in a child car accident varies based on the injuries and whether or not the driver was at fault. There are damage amounts and limits to consider as well, though blame for the accident usually sets a 49 percent reimbursement cap. Another factor to consider is a state’s laws. For example, if a state requires you to keep your child in a car seat and your child wasn’t in a car seat during an accident, you may be facing criminal negligence. The St. Louis child car accident lawyers at Dixon can help you sort all of this information out.
