If your child has been injured in an accident, The Benton Law Firm can help you get the compensation and justice you deserve. Children are among the most vulnerable people there are. Any injury that an adult can suffer can be suffered by a child, though children usually suffer worse. Physical injuries that an adult can bounce back from, such as slip and falls, could leave a child permanently injured, with their future growth and opportunities ruined. Children are largely incapable of protecting themselves, and therefore need the protection of the adults around them. If someone else is negligent in their actions and a child is injured as a result, there can be serious consequences, and the responsible party can and should be held responsible.
If one of your children has been injured by the negligent acts of another, The Benton Law Firm wants to help you seek justice. You can get compensation to help support your injured child and help them to recover fully. The Benton Law Firm is here to help you get the recovery that you deserve. Our experienced Brownsville child injury attorneys will assist you and your child in getting the compensation you need, so call us today at (956) 230-6390.
Why You Need a Lawyer
Taking care of an injured child is difficult, time-consuming, and stressful, both physically and emotionally. It can include medical expenses, physical therapy and emotional support for a child that is panicking or depressed. Whatever it involves, it will undoubtedly take up most of your time, and leave you unable to pursue the compensation that you might need to help your child.

Cases We Handle
Child injuries can come in many different forms. They can be physical, emotional or both. These injuries are, at their core, the same as the ones suffered by adults. However, because children are smaller and not as strong as adults, the injuries they suffer tend to be much worse. Some common accidents that result in child injury include:
- Car Accidents
- Daycare abuse or negligence
- Truck Accidents
- Burn Injuries
- Dog Bites
- Premises Liability
- Product Liability
- Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Wrongful Death
The Benton Law Firm has successfully represented our clients in many kinds of cases, including child injury cases. We know what to look for in a case, and how to fight to get our clients as much compensation as possible. If you let us represent you, we can do the legal research that is needed to make sure you recover for every bit of harm that you and your child have suffered.
What To Do If Your Child Is Injured
The first and most important thing to do if your child is hurt is to get them medical attention right away. Your child’s health is the most important thing, and they will need immediate care to make sure they can recover as much and as quickly as possible.
Next, make sure to call the authorities and report the incident. This will help create a record of the incident for future use. This will help to ensure that the party that caused the harm can be tracked down and held accountable for their actions.
Let your insurance company know about the accident and collect as much as you can from them. Taking care of an injured child can be very expensive, so you need as much support as you can get. You can eventually collect from the person who harmed you, but that can take years of negotiations and litigation.
Record any expenses that you incur as a result of your child’s injuries. You can be compensated for these, but you will need evidence on just how much you spent to make sure you can recover everything that you are owed. These expenses include medical costs, costs of both physical and mental therapy, and the costs associated with any increased care the child might need, like getting them a wheelchair or hiring a caretaker.
Finally, make sure to contact the injury lawyers at The Benton Law Firm as soon as you can. We can only represent you if you let us know that we need your help. If you do not call us, we cannot help you. Additionally, there is a limited time for you to sue. Texas has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injuries, which make up the majority of child injury claims. With minor children, the limit is extended until the child turns 18, but only for certain damages. However, it can take a long time to build a strong case, and evidence only gets harder to find as time passes. Therefore, it is important to get in contact with The Benton Law Firm as soon as you are able to start your claim.
If your child has suffered an injury, you deserve the best legal representation that you can get. The Benton Law Firm can provide you with that legal representation.
