Austin Child Injury Attorneys

Advocates for Young Accident Victims

Was your child injured through someone else's actions or negligence? The personal injury lawyers of Lorenz & Lorenz, L.L.P. are highly motivated to make sure that children get the right medical care and rightful compensation.

A child's injury is compensated differently than an adult's. The standard for liability may be different. There may be challenges in finding insurance coverage. Our experienced accident attorneys are knowledgeable about all these issues.

Injuries to Children

Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for children ages 2 to 14, and the leading cause of acquired disability in children, such as brain injury or paralysis.

Children are also susceptible to different types of injuries in a car wreck, especially from seatbelts, infant or child car seats, and air bags. Our lawyers will pursue product liability cases for auto defects that caused or worsened injuries.

Broken bones or internal injuries can have a long-term effect on a child's physical development if they don't heal properly. Facial injuries, burns and scars can affect a child's emotional development. We work to ensure that our young clients get proper medical care, including reconstructive surgery or psychological counseling if needed.

Children suffer soft tissue injuries just as adults do, but are often less able to describe their injuries. It is important that they see specialists experienced in child injury treatment, rehab and pain management. We have built a network of qualified doctors that we can refer clients to.

Ted Lorenz and his team focus on seeking full coverage for medical needs and maximizing damages for pain and suffering. In the case of permanent injuries, we might also seek damages for lost future earning capacity.

Personal injury compensation on behalf of a child is usually set aside in a special account, to ensure that the money is there to cover future care and to prevent parents from spending it. Any remaining proceeds would be turned over to the child at age 18.
