Failure of Duty and Negligence in New York

Children are not responsible for any harm that befalls them. They are dependent on adults to look out for their safety. When an adult fails in this duty, whether they're a babysitter or a toy manufacturer, they are committing an act of negligence and thus can be held liable for all resulting damages in an injury claim.

Getting Help in the Aftermath of a Child Burn Injury

Because children are still developing, a burn injury can have an impact on their health beyond apparent and immediate effects. That is why you should promptly get your child medical attention following a burn incident. Only a physician can conduct a proper evaluation of the injury to determine the full extent of the damages.

In addition to mounting medical expenses, parents of child burn victims also face lost wages and the mental anguish of having to witness their child suffer the painful effects of a burn. However, the burden does not have to be carried alone. An experienced attorney can help ease the recovery process by providing legal guidance and protection.
