Injuries To Children

When a child is injured or suffers death through the negligence of another party, no amount of money can truly make up for the loss. Financial compensation, however, can provide a measure of reassurance as a child and family cope with the aftermath of an injury, which can include medical expenses, psychological treatment costs, wage loss and much more.

The injury lawyers at McMillen Urick Tocci & Jones have the experience, compassion, and sensitivity necessary to help children and their families pursue compensation for injuries suffered.

What types of child injury cases do you handle?

Our Beaver County attorneys have expertise in many types of child injury cases, including:

  • Dog bites

  • Bicycle accidents

How are child injury cases different from other personal injury cases?

Children face unique issues after injuries. Their cases need to be pursued by parents or guardians. Because of their age, the effects of injuries often last much longer. Also, unlike adults who have to file a lawsuit within the two years of the accident date, the statute of limitations for a minor’s claim expires two years after his or her 18th birthday.
