One of the most solemn responsibilities for our firm is to represent the interests of injured children. We believe it is one of the highest callings of our profession. We have had the honor of being entrusted to represent the rights of infants and toddlers, as well as school-aged children, who suffered serious injuries because of the negligence or wrongful conduct of others.

Brain Injuries and Spinal Cord Injuries
Half a million children each year suffer serious brain injuries and spinal cord injuries as a result of some type of accident. These injuries can be life altering for both child and family. Some of the causes of brain and spinal cord injury in children include:
- Birth injury
- Surgical error
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Defective products
- Slip and fall accidents
- Playground accidents
Burn injuries can be tragically painful and disfiguring, especially when they happen to children. Sometimes these injuries occur because of the fault of a negligent driver, defective product or wrongdoing on the part of a healthcare professional. When we undertake such cases, we understand the compassion that is needed for the child as well as the vision we must have for the child’s future medical needs.
If your child suffered injury because of someone’s negligence or wrongdoing, please contact our child injury and medical malpractice attorneys for advice; we serve Columbus, Ohio and surrounding areas.
