Adults can be held liable when children are injured due to their careless, reckless, or wrongful acts. While general negligence is the legal theory involved in most child injury cases, the specific legal grounds will depend on the circumstances of the child’s injury.

Negligent Supervision and Caretaker Liability

Parents trust third parties to supervise their children every day. As a parent, you really have little choice in the matter. These supervisors and caretakers have a legal duty to provide adequate care and supervision. 

Responsible caretakers may include:

  • Teachers and school administrators
  • Bus drivers
  • Sports coaches
  • Daycare centers and schools
  • Summer camps and camp counselors
  • After-school program aides
  • Babysitters or nannies 
  • Members of the clergy

Adequate care and supervision can mean many different things. 

For example, responsible caregivers have a duty to prevent young children from wandering away. If criminal activity is an issue in the neighborhood, they have a duty to provide adequate security. Sometimes, adequate supervision can simply mean keeping an eye on kids so that they don’t stumble into dangerous situations – like falling into a swimming pool.

Product Liability

Manufacturers of products can be held strictly liable for product defects. If your child was injured due to a defective children’s product, you may be entitled to damages regardless of whether the company was negligent.

Instead, you’ll have to establish that the product was defective and being used as intended or in a reasonably foreseeable way.

Premises Liability

Property owners in Las Vegas must keep their property reasonably safe for invited visitors. That includes kids if it’s safe to assume that children will visit the property.

Businesses must conduct reasonable property inspections to identify hidden risks. They must also provide adequate warning about dangers that can’t be fixed immediately.

When young children are involved, property owners also have a duty to take special precautions when there’s an attractive nuisance (artificial condition) on the property. An attractive nuisance is something that’s both attractive to kids and dangerous. “Special precautions” can be as simple as putting a fence around a swimming pool or locking up heavy machinery.

What Are Some Common Long-Term Consequences of Serious Childhood Injuries?

Children recover from some types of injuries without any long-term complications. After all, children are resilient. 

On the other hand, some types of injuries can leave a child struggling for years. Others can cause permanent damage. Our Las Vegas child injury attorneys will carefully evaluate your case and determine the types of long-term consequences your family is likely to face over the years.

Depending on the nature of the injuries, those might include:

  • Loss of mobility
  • Cognitive disabilities
  • Learning disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • PTSD and fear
  • Loss of a normal childhood
  • Inability to participate in certain activities
  • Difficulty in social situations
  • Developmental delays
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Diminished educational opportunities

The costs associated with these and other effects of a serious childhood injury can be overwhelming. The emotional and financial toll often shocks parents. The outcome of your lawsuit can make a world of difference. To learn more about how we can help, call for your free case review today.

What Causes Most Childhood Injuries in Las Vegas?

Children are often injured in the same ways as adults. Some types of childhood accidents are more unique to children – who can’t yet appreciate risks in the same way as adults.

Some common causes of childhood injuries include:

Under Nevada personal injury laws, any adult whose negligence contributed to your child’s injury can be held accountable. That includes negligent drivers, caretakers, and even property owners.

What Is the Value of My Las Vegas Child Injury Case?

Before you start negotiating with the insurance company, it’s important to know how much your personal injury case is worth. Your settlement should account for all of your current losses. It should also compensate for any anticipated future costs. 

Your case value depends largely on:

  • The severity of your child’s injuries
  • Your child’s prognosis for making a full recovery
  • The cost of medical treatment
  • Your child’s estimated future needs, including rehabilitation, specialized therapies, long-term care, etc.
  • Your lost wages if you lose income to care for your child
  • Your child’s lost future prospects, including educational and career prospects
  • Damage to your child’s mental health, quality of life, and your family’s lifestyle

The value of a child injury claim can be difficult to estimate. Some injuries can impact a child’s entire future. 

Our lawyers have developed a network of respected experts who can testify about various elements of your case value. Depending on the circumstances, opinions from experts in medicine, economics, life planning, and other specialties may be relevant.

What Types of Compensation Should I Expect if My Child Injury Case in Las Vegas Succeeds?

You can seek compensatory damages for economic and non-economic losses, including:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and lost future earning capacity
  • Physical therapy
  • Special educational needs
  • Emotional counseling 
  • Long-term care
  • Increased childcare costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Loss of a normal childhood
  • Reduced life expectancy
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Fear and PTSD

In cases involving a child’s tragic death, you can also recover additional damages for wrongful death.

How Long Do I Have to File a Child Injury Lawsuit in Nevada?

The statute of limitations for most personal injury cases is two years. Under Nevada law, a parent has two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit on behalf of their child.

However, if you don’t take legal action, your child will also have an opportunity to sue for damages once they’re an adult. Our experienced child injury lawyers can explain the deadline that applies to your case during your free consultation.
