Hollywood, Florida is famous for its beach. In fact, Hollywood Beach was designated as one of the top 2009 "Best Beaches for Families" by Fodor's Travel Guides. In addition to being famous for its beach, Hollywood is famous as a top tourist destination for French Canadians, some of whom buy property or rent near the beach. In 2007, the National Civic League named Hollywood an “All-America City” and the city has also been named one the “100 Best Communities for Young People” in the US.
While Hollywood is a great place to raise a family and is considered quite safe, each year many children are rushed to emergency rooms after sustained burns, fractures, spinal cord trauma, and head injuries in Hollywood and surrounding areas. These injuries often occur due to traffic accidents, sports accidents, and other accidents. In many cases, these injuries are preventable. If your child has been injured and you would like to know the facts about your legal options, contact the Flaxman Law Group for a free, no obligation case review.First Steps after a Child Injury in Hollywood or Your Community
Your first step of action after a child injury in Hollywood is to secure emergency or medical help for your child. If your child is obviously injured, visit an emergency medical room if the injuries are serious. If your child may have sustained a head injury in Hollywood or if you are not sure about the possible injuries that your child is sustained, it is important to get a full medical evaluation. This is important for two reasons. First, it ensures that your child gets proper medical attention for any potentially life-threatening injuries that may not present symptoms right away. Secondly, it ensures that a medical professional documents the injuries so that if you decide to pursue legal claim it is clear that the accident has caused the injuries.Contacting a Personal Injury Attorney in Hollywood or Your Community
Once your child's medical needs have been attended to, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney in Hollywood or your community to review your options. Your case may be worth more than you think and your child's injuries may incur serious costs, including medical expenses and lost wages for you as you care for your child. For many households, these costs can be devastating and if your child's injuries were caused by someone’s recklessness or negligence you may not need to pay for these costs out of your own pocket. Keep in mind, too, that pursuing a legal claim can also ensure that safety changes are made to prevent future accidents.
