North Miami Child Injuries
Florida’s North Miami has a rich history. In 1856, United States Army soldiers created a military trail in the area. The trail crossed a natural limestone bridge and thanks to the roadway the area slowly attracted some pioneers. In the 1890s, a man purchased hundreds of acres in the area and began farming. By the 1910s, there were 18 homes and some businesses in the area and the community was largely agricultural. By the 1920s, Florida was experiencing a land boom but the soil in that would eventually be North Miami had been changed by agricultural practices and was no longer as well suited to farming. However, it was ideal for development, which is what attracted 1920s businessmen and developers. The area experienced rapid growth, and experienced another population boom after World War II, when veterans and their families moved to settle in the area.Has Your Child Been Injured in North Miami or Florida?

Children are subject to the same injuries as adults. Traffic accidents in North Miami and other communities, for example, are a leading cause of injuries to children. However, children also face a number of dangers that are unique to minors. For example, children may face defective toys or car seats that can cause injury and they're more likely to be injured in a bicycle accident in North Miami or another community because children are more likely to ride bicycles.
Children also spend considerable time at day cares, schools, and amusement parks, all of which can be dangerous places if the owners of these properties do not take adequate precautions. Children may also be more subject to injuries because they have less life experience. As a result, adults around them are expected to take additional precautions to keep children safe. Owners of swimming pools, for example, are expected under the law to take additional precautions – such as installing gates and fences around the pool – to prevent children from wandering into a pool area and suffering injuries. When property owners fail to take adequate steps to protect a child or when those responsible for a child's care are reckless in providing that care, parents whose children have been injured do have a legal right to pursue compensation.
