Children’s Injuries in Ontario
Injuries to children most often take place when there is improper supervision at the hands of trusted adults or companies, and can occur in the following situations:
- School trip incidents
- Faulty equipment accidents
- Swimming pools
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Defective car seats, toys and other products
There are complex requirements and restrictions in place to handle litigation where children are plaintiffs. Not only do children require litigation guardians, but courts are also required to ensure that any settlement is made in the best interests of the children. It takes knowledgeable lawyers who understand these restrictions and who are dedicated to doing the best for the child.
