South Jersey Child Injury Lawyers
Personal injuries are always terrible, but when serious injuries happen to children, the situations are tragic. At a school or a day care and on playgrounds, parents trust that these places are not unreasonably dangerous for their children. Sometimes, however, a lack of protection, supervision or proper safeguards can cause their children to suffer physical pain and emotional distress.
When your children have been seriously injured through the fault of someone else, you need to contact an experienced lawyer at Garber Law.

Causes Of Injuries To Children
There are many ways that children can be injured through the negligence of another party, including:
- School and day care accidents
- Negligent security or supervision at a school or daycare
- Playground accidents due to faulty equipment or inadequate maintenance
- School bus accidents
- Physical abuse by a daycare supervisor, teacher or other authority figure
- Swimming pool accidents, including drowning, due to lack of supervision or faulty equipment
- Attractive nuisance cases leading to serious injuries – children can be attracted to property (swimming pools, trampolines, sand, etc.) that may cause injury that the child didn’t anticipate.
- Dog bites and other animal attacks
- Suffocation or asphyxiation
- Sports injuries – in school and on the playground
Why Children Are Vulnerable Or At Risk
Children may not understand the risks of certain acts and behaviors in the same way that adults can. They require additional supervision and protection in public places. It is unreasonable to assume that a child will take the same action as adults in all situations. These assumptions often lead to serious injuries to children.
Children are likely to be more scared if they suffer pain because of an accident than adults. Because children are not fully developed, physically and emotionally, they may suffer more serious injuries and may require more medical care than adults. We work with medical experts who are experienced in diagnosing and treating children’s injuries.
