Tampa Child Injury Lawyer

For many reasons, children are more accident prone than adults. Not only do they lack coordination as their bodies grow (sometimes many inches in a single year), but their rambunctious nature leads to a myriad of bumps and bruises. However, not every injury a child sustains is the result of just playing around. Car crashes kill thousands of children every year. Defective toys, booster seats, and furniture prone to tipping over cause countless injuries amongst young users. Whether your child was injured by a driver, a company that manufactured a defective or dangerous product, or on school grounds when there was a clear lack of supervision, you may be able to successfully recover damages from the at fault party. While the matter of serious child injuries is heartbreaking every time, the Tampa child injury lawyer at The Matassini Law Firm, P.A. has decades of combined experience resolving such issues for our clients, and is here for you in your time of need.

Proving Fault in a Child Injury Case

Quite often, proving fault in a child injury case is the same as proving fault in a personal injury case in which the victim is an adult. Other times, however, child injury claims can be more complicated. For one thing, children are more likely to blindly accept blame when an adult says they are at fault. Secondly, a child’s account of what happened is less likely to act as substantial proof of how the injury occurred. A fast food restaurant owner, for example, might claim that your child was running and that running was the cause of a slip and fall, not the greasy, unclean floor. For these reasons, it is best to reach out to an experienced Tampa child injury lawyer as soon as you can to start working on the case, to preserve evidence, and to ensure that your child’s memory of events are as clear as possible. Of course, testimony is not the only source of evidence. Depending on the circumstances in which your child was injured, we may use evidence such as traffic crash scene forensics, video surveillance, eyewitness accounts, and expert witnesses.

The experience you need in your pursuit of justice

The greatest distinguishing feature among attorneys is their level of experience. Our firm has more than 60 years of legal experience, much of it spent in the courtroom at trial.

The resources to provide quality representation for the length of your case

Whether your case involves medical malpractice, an auto accident or a wrongful death, your attorney must be prepared to take the case all the way through trial to verdict. Many personal injury attorneys advance the cost of litigation, so they can only last so long before financial pressures start to mount. As a client, you have to wonder whether an attorney's advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneys need to get paid. Fortunately, The Matassini Law Firm has the resources to pursue civil verdicts and settlements that reflect the actual value of your case.
