Los Angeles, California Consumer Safety Attorneys for Children
Defective Car Seats, Baby Seats, Booster Seats and Child Safety Seats
There is nothing more tragic than suffering the loss of a child. When a young child or baby is severely injured or killed in an accident because of a defective car seat, no amount of compensation can make up for your loss.
Our compassionate consumer product attorneys understand how difficult it is when an injured baby or child is disfigured or requires comprehensive medical care or rehabilitative services. Babies are too young to understand that painful procedures are intended to help and the stress and mental anguish parents must endure is profoundly difficult.
AlderLaw attorneys are parents, too, and we always fight most aggressively in cases involving children. In lawsuits involving the wrongful death of a child, we work hard to bring justice and closure to the victim's family. [About our Defective Products Law Practice]
Compensation for Future Medical Expenses
We also are sensitive to the long-term financial and emotional toll recovering from a severe injury takes. We will seek compensation for medical costs as well as future anticipated costs for medical care, physical therapies, surgeries, dependent care, and other expenses as may be necessary to give you and your injured child a chance at a more normal life.
Damages for Emotional Distress and Pain and Suffering
We will also seek damages whenever possible to help compensate the emotional pain and suffering you have had to bear. If a manufacturer was negligent informing consumers of known safety issues, punitive damages can serve as a way to punish the manufacturer and warn others in the industry they will not get away with putting our childrens' lives at risk.
Car / Baby Seat Manufacturers Blame Parents
Whether a child booster sear or baby car seat is ejected from a vehicle or otherwise fails to do its job and keep a child or infant free from harm, the defendants should be required to pay for their damage and more importantly, fix their product if it is defective.
Defendants in cases involving injuries and deaths caused by defective child safety devices will usually try to blame the family at this horrible time in their lives. They will attempt to persuade the family and a jury that family installed the car seat incorrectly or did not strap the baby or toddler in the "right way."
Unfortunately, parents often do feel guilty when a child is hurt of killed and may accept an unfair insurance settlement because they do not understand where the real blame lies -- with the manufacturer of defective child safety devices.
Our Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyers on Your Side
We do not defend companies that make products that harm or kill children. We defend victims and their families, but it is critical to move quickly on faulty / defective child safety seat cases to secure all necessary evidence, which is particularly important to prove fault later.
The family often just wants to move on from their loss, which is understandable, and why AlderLaw can help take over the details and ensure that the family has the information they need to fight the defendant when they are ready to do so.
We invite you to contact our law firm today for a free initial consultation and case evaluation. We work on a contingency basis which means you pay us when we settle or win your case for you.
