Children’s injuries can arise as a result of improper adult supervision or from faulty or dangerous products or equipment.
Children’s injuries can be particularly problematic because their brains, central nervous systems and musculoskeletal systems are still developing. Long-term outcomes are more difficult to predict and require expert evidence from qualified paediatric specialists.
Serious children’s injuries can result from a number of different situations that carry varying degrees of risk, including:
- Defective children’s toys or equipment
- Faulty or defective playground or gym equipment
- Improper adult supervision at school or camp
- School bus or other motor vehicle accidents

When a child or teen suffers a serious or catastrophic brain or spinal cord injury, the prospect of falling behind in school, losing contact with friends and struggling to prepare for the future can commonly occur. In these cases, the need for classroom assistants and tutors may be necessary, as well as a comprehensive multi-disciplinary rehabilitation team, who specialize in pediatric medicine; this is vital to ensure maximum recovery. Unfortunately, a child’s physical body, including the brain and spinal cord, are continuing to develop, and the full extent of disability and the long term effects of the injury may not yet be known. We will ensure that your child receives the very best specialized care and therapy from physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists and psychologists, to ensure the best possible outcome.
