Central Florida Child Injury / Bicycle
Accident Attorneys in Daytona Beach

A parent's worst nightmare is even the most remote possibility of harm coming to their child. The Central Florida child injury lawyers at our Daytona Beach firm are attorneys who care about the interests of you and your family. In addition to defective products, motor vehicle accidents, and falling objects, bicycle accidents are some of the most common sources of child injuries. Our Central Florida bicycle accident attorneys are skilled litigators who can help you through this difficult time. At Chanfrau & Chanfrau, we will aggressively pursue compensation for medical care, mental anguish, and financial losses due to the injury, or tragic death, of a child.

Injury Due to Defective Products/Toys

Every year, a large number of children are injured because of defective or inadequately labeled toys, playground equipment, and other sources.

Designers, manufacturers, and marketers are under strict regulations to ensure the products that are placed on the shelves and eventually sold to consumers are safe. This is of paramount importance when it comes to products for children.

The child injury lawyers at our Daytona Beach firm have the will to take on large companies and complex product liability cases. We are determined to see that negligent parties are held responsible for the careless and dangerous merchandising of faulty toys and products.

Chanfrau & Chanfrau handles cases involving children who are victims of negligent accidents or victims of child abuse. When a child is injured, it is imperative to consider the long-term medical or emotional care he or she will need. Children's cases are unique because children respond differently to trauma than adults, and some will need treatment for a lengthy period of time. We help families deal with crisis and protect the child's future.

Injury Due to Bicycle Accidents

Of the 42,000 bicyclists who are injured in the United States every year, 30 percent of them are children under the age of 14. The Central Florida bicycle accident attorneys at Chanfrau & Chanfrau are skilled at handling personal injury cases that stem from bicycle accidents. Our attorneys know that bicyclists are extremely vulnerable since their entire bodies are exposed, making them susceptible to all kinds of injuries, including those caused by the negligence of others. Bicycle accidents can result in permanent disabilities, and injuries can also frequently be fatal.

More than half of all bicycle accidents take place at intersections and driveways, and are often caused by another driver's negligence. Negligence may include driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driver distractions, or disregarding traffic laws.

If your child has been injured in a bicycle accident that you believe was caused by another person or group's negligence, our Central Florida bicycle accident attorneys in Daytona Beach can help. The physical and psychological effects that can result from these injuries can be life long and can put an enormous strain on financial stability. Our lawyers are diligent defenders of your rights and the rights of children. We understand the laws and circumstances surrounding these types of personal injury cases, and are prepared to fight for maximum recovery, and hold responsible parties accountable.

Drowning Incidents

The leading cause of death due to accidental injury among one-to-four-year-olds is drowning. More than half of those accidents occur when a child is in or around a pool. Children should never be unsupervised around a swimming pool, spa, or any body of water, not even for a moment, and proper precautions such as fencing and self-closing gates should be installed around those areas in order to prevent children from accessing them on their own.

If your child has been the victim of a pool or water-related accident due to the negligence of another individual or group, contact our Central Florida child injury attorneys for a free consultation.

Injury Due to Lead Poisoning

The number one environmental health threat to children ages six and under is exposure to lead poisoning. Even small amounts of lead or lead dust that are ingested by swallowing or breathing it in can be extremely hazardous to a child's health. Lead is more easily absorbed by children than adults due to their physiology, and children can easily put chips of lead paint from virtually any area inside or outside the house into their mouths, which can result in serious health ramifications. In fact, even intact, lead paint can be the source of a fine lead dust that may be nearly invisible to the naked eye. Houses or buildings built before 1978 are especially vulnerable to having been painted with lead-based products, and peeling paint is a sign that lead may have a presence in the home.

Some of the health problems brought on by lead exposure include learning disabilities and even mental retardation.

If your child may have been exposed to lead, you should seek medical attention immediately. Lead poisoning can be diagnosed with a blood test, and its effects can be limited or prevented if caught in time.

Our Central Florida child injury attorneys can help you recover damages if your child has suffered from lead exposure. We can review your case free of charge and discuss your options for compensation.

Injury Due to Child Abuse

Shaken Baby Syndrome

The attorneys at Chanfrau & Chanfrau can help loved ones of children who have been abused or neglected pursue civil damages for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages for parents caring for the injured child, and punitive damages against the person or group responsible. If you know a child whom you believe has been abused or neglected, it is imperative that you bring your suspicions to authorities as soon as possible.

Injury Due to Falling Objects/Debris

As parents and as individuals, we expect the places we frequent outside the home to be safe for us and our children. However, sometimes, when visiting a market or a store, a well-stocked but poorly organized shelf can lead to injuries. Falling objects or debris may not be the result of freak accidents, they may have been caused by negligence on the part of employees or other individuals who are subject to premises liability laws. An object falling from even a minimal height can cause traumatic head injuries that can lead to life-long medical problems and sometimes fatal consequences.

If your child has been the victim of falling objects or debris, contact our child injury lawyers in Daytona Beach for more information on how you can recover damages and hold responsible parties accountable.

Injury Due to Motor Vehicle Accidents

Thousands of people are injured or killed each year in auto accidents, and many of them are children. The negligence of other drivers can lead to tragic consequences when children are crossing the street, riding bikes, or traveling in a car or bus. In addition, children can be injured by defective child restraint seats that do not work properly in the event of an accident. Lifelong medical and emotional problems can result from these injuries, devastating families and draining financial resources.

The Central Florida child injury attorneys at Chanfrau & Chanfrau are committed to securing the future of children who are the victims of motor vehicle accidents. If your loved one has been injured as the result of the negligence of another driver or a fault in a product designed to keep children safe, contact the law firm of Chanfrau & Chanfrau today and we will review your case.
