South Miami Child Injuries
Miami Dade County’s South Miami is a community with a rich history. The area was first officially settled by W.A. Larkins in 1897. Larkins was a pioneer who established a dairy and later a post office with his family. In 1906, the Florida East Coast Railroad had a Miami to Homestead extension and Larkins established a general supply store and grocery store on the route, near what is today Red Road and Sunset Drive. The early community was named Larkins. By 1917, there were 350 residents in the area and with the land boom of the 1920s even more people flocked to the area. With the boom, town residents gathered in 1926 to incorporate the town as South Miami.Child Injuries in South Miami and Surrounding Areas
Like all cities, South Miami and surrounding communities see their share of child injuries. These injuries occur most often due to traffic accidents and car collisions in South Miami and other communities, but they can also occur due to defective products, inadequate security, and a host of other issues.
The Flaxman Law Group believes that all commercial operators and providers of childhood care should be held accountable if they are negligent in providing the highest quality care and supervision for children. When children are injured due to negligence or recklessness, parents do have the right to pursue legal action in order to recover compensation.
If your child has been seriously injured at an amusement park, playground, school, school activity, day care, or other environment, seeking fair compensation is your right and it can help you pay for a number of things that can help your child:
- Compensation for lost income, so that you can stay with your child as he or she recovers without worrying about financial loss
- Medical care for your child
- Tutoring and schooling for your child, so that he or she does not fall behind in their studies
- Counseling or therapy for your child if your child's injuries are severe or have resulted in trauma
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
Of course, you want the best for your child. If your child has been seriously injured, seeking compensation can help hold those responsible accountable for their actions. In many cases, this helps lead to important safety changes that help prevent tragedies in other families. Seeking compensation can also ensure that you have the financial resources to provide the best possible care for your child, increasing the chances that he or she will be able to make a fuller recovery.
