Ottawa Child Injury Lawyer
Sadly, two 2 year old toddlers were rushed to the Children’s hospital of Eastern Ontario this morning after being hit by a car on Terry Fox and Hazeldean in Kanata. The Kanata accident occurred at McElroy Drive and Rickey Place just before 8 am . One of the toddlers suffered a severe head injury, an injury to her arm and internal injuries. She remains at CHEO in serious but thankfully stable condition. The second toddler suffered minor bruises and remains in stable condition. My thoughts go out these 2 families at this very stressful time. I hope that these little girls are able to FULLY recover from this terrible accident. A child injury is never an easy thing to accept. Our personal injury lawyers understand that there is nothing more important than our children. We have children ourselves and we know that parents would do anything to turn back a clock and not have their child be injured. Unfortunately, accidents happen.
Child Injuries and Car Accidents
If a child is injured in a motor vehicle accident, there are many things to consider. First and foremost, is obviously medical attention. Until your child is in good hands, there is nothing lese to do but be there for them. Once your child is medically stable and you are ready, you can contact a personal injury lawyer experienced in child injuries to determine what accident benefits you will need to access right away and which accident benefits you will need later on. If your child is seriously injured, you may be in the hospital for several days, weeks or even months. It’s important that you know what expenses are covered while your child is being treated. The court system in Ontario is also very careful when it comes to child injuries. All child injury lawsuits must have a legal guardian appointed by the courts and any costs paid to a personal injury lawyer must be submitted and approved by the courts. All this is done to protect children and make sure no one takes advantage of a child or a child’s parent. If you have a question regarding a child injury or accident compensation for children, contact our injury lawyers and we would be happy to sit down with you and review all of your options.
