Long-Term Injuries to Children

Some injuries to children are so devastating that they become long-term or life-long injuries. The attorneys at Burnside Law Firm LLP understand that these injuries will require your time, attention and money long after your case is over. For this reason, we make every effort to project these future needs and losses and include them in calculating the total loss suffered.

Faulty and defective products, ranging from car seats, seat belts, and toys to household appliances and medical devices, pose significant risks to consumers. These hazards can result in severe injuries, ranging from minor cuts and bruises to life-altering disabilities or even death. In cases where children are involved, the consequences can be particularly devastating, potentially requiring extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and long-term care.

As a parent or guardian, it’s crucial to understand your legal rights and options if your child has been harmed due to a defective product. Depending on the incident’s circumstances, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim, medical malpractice lawsuit or wrongful death case. Seeking legal guidance from a reputable law firm with a proven track record of advocating for families affected by product defects is essential. With decades of experience serving the community in Georgia since 1978, Burnside Law Firm in Augusta and Athens is committed to providing compassionate support and expert legal representation to help you pursue the compensation and justice your family deserves.

Long-Term Accident Injuries Lawyers

An injury sustained by a child not only inflicts physical pain but also creates profound emotional and financial challenges for the entire family. Coping with the aftermath of serious or catastrophic injuries can be overwhelming, as it often involves a plethora of medical expenses, extensive rehabilitation, ongoing therapy sessions, and the need for long-term care arrangements. These unforeseen financial burdens can exacerbate an already distressing situation, leaving families grappling with uncertainty and stress. However, amidst these hardships, there is hope. Burnside Law Firm is dedicated to standing by your side during this difficult time, advocating fiercely on behalf of your child to secure the financial compensation necessary to alleviate the strain on your family’s finances. By pursuing compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost wages and other related expenses, we aim to provide you with the peace of mind and financial stability needed to focus solely on your child’s recovery journey.

Serious and Catastrophic Long-Term Injuries

Serious and catastrophic injuries encompass a range of debilitating conditions that can have profound and long-lasting effects on an individual’s physical, emotional and psychological well-being. These injuries include:

  • Head and brain injuries: Head and brain injuries comprise a diverse spectrum of trauma, ranging from mild concussions to severe traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and can manifest in symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, cognitive impairment, memory loss and personality changes. The ramifications of these injuries extend far beyond the physical realm, often leading to emotional distress, altered behaviors and challenges in daily functioning.
  • Back and spinal cord injuries: Back and spinal cord injuries encompass a wide array of trauma affecting the spinal column, spinal cord and associated nerves, potentially resulting in partial or complete paralysis, loss of sensation and disruptions in bodily functions such as bladder and bowel control. Rehabilitation for these injuries is intensive and multifaceted, incorporating physical therapy, occupational therapy and psychological counseling to promote both functional independence and psychological well-being.
  • Burn and electrical injuries: Burn and electrical injuries stem from exposure to heat, flames, chemicals or electrical currents, resulting in tissue damage and varying degrees of trauma. Severe burns often necessitate extensive medical intervention, such as skin grafts, surgeries, and long-term wound care management. 
  • Broken bones/severed limbs: Fractures and severed limbs present substantial challenges, resulting in pain, functional limitations, and disruptions in daily activities. Complex fractures often necessitate surgical intervention, such as open reduction and internal fixation, to realign and stabilize the bone for effective healing. Limb amputations require significant physical and emotional adjustments, including rehabilitation, prosthetic fitting, and psychological support, aimed at enhancing adaptation and improving the overall quality of life.
