Children’s Injuries

What Can Be Worse Than A Child Being Hurt?

If your child is hit by a car or is in a school bus accident, the driver may be liable for causing the injury.

When you retain us to represent you and your child in their injury claim and any resulting lawsuit, we commit to ensuring that their recovery and rehabilitation is fully covered as well as making sure that their future is protected. For instance, if a school was involved, we know the strategy needed to sue a school board for negligence. A major injury to a six-year-old, can have repercussions for the life of that child. At Gosai Law, we want to be sure that when your child returns to school, or work if they are older, that they will be able to achieve their full potential. Here’s what we do:

Our goal is to provide your child with the help they need now, that they have the money needed to speed them to as full a recovery as possible, and that they have the funds they will need in the future to compensate for what they lost today.

Because they’re children, there are many causes, ways, and places they can be hurt:

There are a number of complicated restrictions that come into play when a child is injured. At Gosai Law, we are familiar with the rules for lawsuits involving injuries to children and will help you understand and navigate the process. Ontario law and judges are very protective of children who are under the age of 18 when they have been hurt and seek compensation or file a lawsuit. The facts in the case are looked at differently and the case is handled differently than if an adult has been hurt or made ill. So, for example, even though you as the parent may retain us, the court might appoint what is called a “guardian ad litem” as the child’s legal representative. Their job isn’t to interfere in the case but simply to assure the court that your child’s rights are protected and adequately represented.
