We can help you if your child has been injured due to:
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), among U.S. children aged 5-19, car accidents are the leading cause of injury and death. Children’s injuries related to car accidents bring about 150 children to the emergency room every hour, and some accidents tragically result in a child’s death.
Because their small size can be easily missed by careless drivers, children are inherently susceptible to bicycle injury. Accidents can occur due to collisions while riding, poor bicycle design or helmet failure.
Pedestrian accidents can occur due to the negligence of a driver not looking carefully enough for children in their path. No pedestrian, especially a child, should be at risk when walking around outside. If your child is the victim of a pedestrian accident, it can result in catastrophic injury or even death.
Poisoning and severe burns are responsible for countless fatalities in children aged 0-19 according to the NIH. According the the NIH poisoning and severe burns from faulty products are responsible for countless fatalities in children up to 19 years of age. These types of accidents are preventable as long as companies are ensuring the safety of their products for children. Any missteps in the production process can result in a faulty product, and responsible companies can be charged for negligence.
Car accident injuries are tragic for anyone who has to suffer through them, and circumstances become even more heartbreaking when children are harmed in the event.

The most commonly reported children’s injuries include:
Slip and fall injuries can occur anywhere with uneven or slick surfaces. We have worked with clients whose children have become injured at water parks, amusement parks, shopping malls, or other public spaces. Often times, slip and fall injuries happen in areas that have been inadequately designed or are not up to code. According to the NIH, falls are the most common cause of children’s nonfatal injuries.
Children are joining high-impact sports at younger ages than ever before. Children who join aggressive sports are often left with concussions, broken bones and internal injuries.
According to the NIH, almost half of all children will experience a dog bite in their lifetime. Dog bites are a serious injury for small children and, depending on the severity of the injury, can lead to lifelong complications.
The carelessness of a healthcare provider can bring harm to their patients, no matter what age. When children suffer injuries due to medical malpractice, we can help families seek justice.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, nearly 1 in 4 children fatalities results from injuries caused by car accidents.
The most common children’s injuries following an accident are:
High impact car crashes can cause a child’s head to be thrown into other objects in the car. Skull fractures, brain trauma, concussions, and lacerations are all injuries that can result from a head injury.
Children should always be wearing seatbelts when riding in cars. Many times, seatbelts are not worn properly. Even when a child is properly restrained, the forward impact of a crash can propel a child’s body into the seatbelt straps and can cause injury to internal organs.
Even small car crashes can cause broken bones in children. Bruises, cuts and other bodily injury are also common.
When a car accident causes injury to a child’s neck or spinal cord it may result in paralysis. The circumstances that lead to paralysis may also have caused head trauma which can lead to traumatic brain injury.

Mr. Pines asked me whether I was in the same shape as before my accident – this I had to deny. My back was still hurting and he stated that, if I would accept his services, he would ensure that I would get the therapy I needed […] and that all bills would be paid and my health restored. Michael Pines and his team have kept this promise.
My friend recommended Michael Pines to me and I was super happy. They took very good care of me, treated me very nice, and I got a very nice check. I had a lot of back pain and the doctor they referred me to helped me so much! I didn’t have to pay anything when I was getting treatment. I was so happy, that I’ve referred another friend to Michael pines.
