Attorneys for Child Injuries and Death
There is nothing more devastating than the loss of a child due to an accident or negligence, or a serious life-altering injury that requires special care for the rest of the child’s life. The last thing you want to think about is meeting with an attorney to discuss legal issues. At Willis, Willis & Rizzi we have helped many clients through these very difficult and trying situations. What we recommend in cases like this, as difficult as it may be, is to take an afternoon as soon as possible and meet with a personal injury attorney and hand the case off. There are important time considerations when it comes to evidence gathering and if you wait too long to start discussing a potential case, it may be too late to gather the needed evidence. For example, in one of our personal injury cases involving a pedestrian that was hit as the result of an auto accident, we were able to canvas the scene in time to gather video evidence from a nearby gas station whose security cameras captured the entire event. This type of evidence doesn’t last forever as security footage is only kept for so many weeks or days. So, take the time and meet with us and let us get started working on your behalf while you process the grief related to the loss or injury of your child.
At Willis, Willis & Rizzi we have handled child injury and death cases in many situations, including:
- Auto accidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Defective product injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
- And more…
Child injury cases are very complex. A child can not directly settle a case. In Ohio, neither the child nor parents directly receive compensation from a personal injury settlement. The Probate Court will establish a trust so the money can be used for the future needs of the child. Let Willis, Willis & Rizzi handle the complex process of working with the Probate Court, this isn’t something you want to try and do on your own.
In the death of a child, our personal injury attorneys will seek the maximum compensation available. We are experts at finding insurance coverages that other personal injury attorneys may miss because they are rushing your case due to the mass volumes of cases they are handling.
