Sustaining injuries in an accident is hard enough, but seeing your child suffer is even worse. This can be especially difficult if another person’s negligence was responsible for your child’s injuries. If your child experienced such an accident in Marion, our team can help you seek justice and compensation.
The Marion personal injury lawyers from The Fitch Law Firm LLC can handle your case from start to finish while you focus on helping your child recover. We can work to hold a liable party responsible for a variety of damages, including your child’s medical care and pain and suffering.
Accidents That Can Lead to a Child’s Injuries and Who May Be Responsible
Children get hurt all the time, but when another party owed your child a duty of care and failed to keep them safe, they should assume the financial responsibility. Negligence can play a role in various types of accidents that lead to child injury, including:
- Car accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Accidents on school or daycare property
- Accidents involving other children
- Accidents on church property
Regardless of where your child’s accident occurred, if another party caused or contributed to it, our Marion child injury attorneys can work to hold them accountable.
Potentially Liable Parties in a Child Injury Case
Multiple parties may factor into your child’s injury case. We will make sure to get to the bottom of who contributed to your child’s accident. Some potentially responsible parties can include:
- Daycare workers
- Teachers, school administrators, and school staff
- Security guards
- Other children and parents
- Church administrators and staff
When you trust your child’s safety to others, you expect them to monitor your child and prevent hazards that can compromise their safety. Nothing is worse than getting a call and finding out that your child is hurt. It’s even worse when you discover that the accident was avoidable.
We can gather evidence of negligence and file an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit to seek compensation that can help you tend to your child’s injuries.
Our Marion Child Injury Attorneys Can Seek Maximum Compensation
Your potential compensation depends entirely on the severity of your child’s injuries and how they will affect their life going forward. Typically, more severe injuries will warrant greater compensation. For example, if your child suffered an injury that leads to permanent disability, their entire future will change. They may struggle to keep up in school if they experience cognitive impairment. They may also have a hard time emotionally and physically.
It can be devastating to watch your child adjust to a new normal, and they may require additional help with daily activities. You deserve fair compensation, which can help you get your child the care they need.
In general, our personal injury lawyers can seek financial recovery for the following damages:
- Current medical expenses, such as hospitalizations, medication, and surgeries
- Ongoing medical care, such as rehabilitation and in-home aid
- Medical devices and home modifications
- Your child’s pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Lost earning capacity if your child suffers injuries that will prevent them from earning an income and supporting themselves in the future
We will consult your child’s doctors to determine what their future care and lifestyle will look like. This way, we can seek a fair settlement or verdict. We want to help your child and your family adjust to their injuries as best as possible.
If You Lost a Child to Accident-Related Injuries
When fatal accidents involve children, parents and family members face the most difficult time of their lives. Although nothing can replace a loved one, especially a child, you deserve justice and compensation that can help you properly honor their memory.
You can file a wrongful death lawsuit, and our Marion lawyers can help. Few families are emotionally or financially prepared to handle a funeral. We can seek awards for:
- Funeral expenses, including burial or cremation services
- Your child’s accident-related medical bills
- Their pain and suffering
- Loss of filial consortium
We will handle your case with the compassion and dedication it deserves. We want to give your family time to grieve in peace without the hassle of the legal process.

You Have a Deadline to File a Lawsuit for Your Child’s Injuries in Marion
We know it takes time to process what your child is going through, but you should get started on your case as soon as possible. According to Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10, you generally have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. Under Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02, you also generally have two years from the date of your child’s passing to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
If you miss these deadlines, you risk seeing the court dismiss your lawsuit and losing your last chance to seek compensation from a liable party. Do not let anyone get away with causing your child harm.
