Practice Areas: Catastrophic Injuries Involving Children

Children and Personal Injury Law

Parents don’t expect their children to suffer catastrophic injuries, yet statistics show that accidents are the leading cause of death among children and adolescents. Chief among these accidents are car accidents, accidental drowning, playground accidents and injuries caused by defective products. When a child suffers a life-changing personal injury, parents are often confused about their child’s rights, as well as their own. They may wonder whether they have a legal claim, who may be held accountable for their child’s injuries, what damages may be recoverable and how soon a lawsuit must be filed. The child personal injury lawyers of Frankel & Kershenbaum are prepared to fight for the rights of injured children and their parents throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. We offer zealous representation and legal counseling to families facing the long-term effects of catastrophic childhood injuries, including permanent disability, medical expenses, lifetime care, educational challenges, loss of potential earnings, wrongful death and other hardships.
