What to do after a child accident in Ontario
If your child was injured at a daycare, school, camp, or due to a defective product or a myriad of other reasons, the first step is not to panic. And the next step is to make sure your child isn’t panicking, if you can. Keep them calm and assess their injuries, and decide if you need to go to the ER or not.
After your child is treated for their injury, you can think legally. You’ll want to document the details of what happened as much as you possibly can, and take means speaking to any witnesses, taking pictures, etc.. It can be difficult to determine what happened if you weren’t at the scene, but if your child was injured at school or daycare, they should have a record of what happened as well.
Once your child has been treated and you’ve gathered evidence, you’ll want to meet with a personal injury attorney who has experience with child accident cases. The attorney will review all your evidence and documentation and help you determine if you have a case, as well as how to proceed legally. Working with a personal injury lawyer will help you ensure your court case goes well, and you get the settlement or judgement your child needs in order to heal.
