Your child suffered a broken collarbone because of someone else’s negligence. Fortunately, you may be able to take action.

What damages can I recover if my child breaks her collarbone because of someone’s negligence?

 

A:

Your child attended a birthday party in Tacoma. Because you didn’t know the family well, you stayed with her. She was extremely excited about the moonbounce there and couldn’t wait to start playing.

A few minutes after she started bouncing, she fell out of the house. Turns out, the moonbounce wasn’t put together properly, and she became injured as a result. A trip to Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital showed she had a broken collarbone.

What You Can Recover When Your Child Is Injured

Your normally active and happy child hasn’t been able to enjoy the activities she used to because of the pain she’s in and the constant trips to the doctor. And because of the complexity of the fracture, she has to undergo surgery to repair the break. The expense of the injury is adding up, and you don’t think you should have to pay for the fees since the accident was because of someone else’s negligence. Fortunately, you can take action and attempt to recover fees for:

  • Current, ongoing, and future medical expenses related to the injury
  • Medication and surgery costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Costs related to traveling
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Out-of-pocket fees

Don’t Trust the Insurance Company to Do What Is Fair

Your insurance company will attempt to offer you a settlement for your daughter’s injury. A representative will try to fool you into thinking your best intentions are considered, when in fact, they are not.

You won’t get the settlement you deserve if you trust the insurance company. However, when you have an experienced attorney on your side, you’ll likely receive more than you would otherwise.
