Attorneys for Children Injured in Truck Accidents
Children are a miracle of energy and excitement. That is why it is so much more heartbreaking when you hear about a child who was in a truck accident.
While no one should have to endure an accident, it is especially so for children. Furthermore, having to deal with all of the paperwork and legal issues after the accident is a double whammy to parents or caregivers who have to deal with the emotional aftermath and the paperwork.
That is the reason why Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers work so hard to get justice and peace of mind for the parents and kids who were victims of a trucking accident in the Illinois area.
We know that you should not have to suffer the indignity of waiting on hold talking to insurance companies for hours trying to get justice.
How do children suffer injuries in semi-truck accidents?
Take the case of one of our clients. A mother and daughter were travelling on I-88 in Naperville when a delivery truck rear-ended them at a high speed.
The mother suffered back and neck injuries from the ordeal. However, the extensive injuries happened to the daughter who was in her booster seat in the back of the car.
Studies show that children under 13 who are restrained in the back seat have a much lower rate of fatality than children restrained in the front seat.
The child’s restraint was loose in this case, and the daughter fractured her knee cap. Traditional orthopedic treatments did not work. The daughter needed surgery and extensive rehab to repair the fractured knee cap.
After this ordeal, the mother spoke with Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers about getting just compensation for their daughter.
Because we are thorough in our job, we discovered during depositions that this was the second accident in just a few weeks on the job for the driver.
We were able to settle with the insurance company for $1.2 million on behalf of the daughter, and an additional $300K for the mother based on the medical treatments, pain, and suffering.
By settling with the insurance company for such a large amount, we ensure the child has adequate monies to pay for all of their treatments needed to preserve their health.
