Baltimore parents understand that their children need a great deal of love and care in order to thrive. While it is certainly not an easy task to be a parent, the challenge can become much more difficult, and the child’s needs much more serious, when children are injured in tragic incidents.
Unfortunately, there are countless ways in which children can be injured, including injuries that occur at the hands of other individuals. For instance, car accidents, playground injuries or sexual abuse can all leave permanent injury to the child in one form or another.
No matter what the cause, it is important that the child receives the necessary treatment after the injury. This will depend, of course, upon the nature of the injury itself. For instance, physical injuries to the child may require significant medical treatments, including surgeries, medications and therapy. Other injuries like sexual abuse may require counseling and other forms of therapy to treat the emotional scars left on the child.
In any event, the treatment and therapy can be extremely expensive for Maryland families to cover. Accordingly, it is vital that those responsible for the child’s injury be held accountable for their actions, both as a general matter, and in order to obtain an award of money damages that can be used to provide treatment for the child’s injury.
