Pompano Beach Child Injury
Pompano Beach, Florida, is a vibrant South Florida community between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, with a large number of children under the age of 19. The community is replete with playgrounds, parks, schools, fields, and activities aimed at entertaining these young residents, and at encouraging visitors to come to Pompano Beach to visit.
Every Pompano Beach parent wants happy, healthy children, but sometimes, tragedy strikes. Children can face injuries, some even serious or catastrophic, or even death, due to negligence of others and through no fault of their own. In those difficult cases, the law firm of Frankl & Kominsky can help.Childhood Accidents
Despite the best efforts of parents to keep them safe, children in Pompano Beach sometimes face injury, caused by actions of others and not because of their own activities. These injuries can occur almost anywhere, at almost any time. The Florida Department of Health (DOH) notes that more than 500,000 children are treated in Florida hospital emergency departments every year. The DOH also says that unintentional injury is the primary cause of death among children under the age of 19 in Florida.
Vehicle accidents cause the most injuries and deaths to children every year, according to the DOH. These accidents can take place in a car, a bus, a school bus, or any other type of vehicle. Accidents due to improper or negligent care of property, defective products, and many other situations can also cause harm to children.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the most common injuries to US children are:
- Car Accidents
- Birth Injuries
- Crib Injuries
- Bicycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Sports Injuries
- Day Care Accidents/ Injuries
- School Injuries
- Playground Injuries
- Amusement Park Injuries
- Dog Bites
- Toy Injuries
- Medical Malpractice Injuries
While many of these situations are also common to adults, some are specific to children. Problems with toys, drowning in unsupervised pools, and amusement park or carnival/fair accidents, for example, tend to impact the youngest Pompano Beach residents.
Molestation, sexual abuse, and sexual assault, unfortunately, also are real dangers to our children. Coaches, teachers, doctors, day care providers, and even medical professionals like doctors and dentists can take advantage of young children and cause them serious harm.Caring Legal Help
