When your child is injured, you want to know that they will be taken care of. You want them to have the best medical care possible, and you want to ensure that the negligent party who caused the accident is held accountable for the harm they caused your child and its effects on your family.

Rizk Law Hillsboro child injury attorneys understand how scary and stressful it is to have a child injured in a way that could have been prevented, which is why we fight these types of claims aggressively. Our award-winning lawyers are dedicated to providing dependable, assertive legal representation to parents of children injured by negligent parties in Hillsboro and across Oregon.

Types of Damages You May Be Able to Recover After a Child Injury in Hillsboro, Oregon

Rizk Law lawyers have a successful track record of helping parents like you recover damages related to their children’s injuries. However, Oregon has a two-year statute of limitations for most personal injury claims, so if your child has been injured in Hillsboro, Oregon, because of another party’s negligence, it is important that you seek legal representation as soon as possible so we can begin building the strongest defense possible for your child’s case.

Types of damages we may be able to help you recover for your child’s accident include the following:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Household out-of-pocket expenses
  • Physical therapy
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • In-home rehabilitation
  • Ambulance ride
  • Emergency medical treatment
  • Change in lifestyle
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of personal enjoyment

Suppose you had to miss work because of your child’s injury. In that case, you might also recover monetary compensation for lost wages (including money for future lost wages and benefits you might miss out on).

In some situations, an award for punitive damages may be available. Unlike compensatory damages, awards for punitive damages are accessible only in cases where the negligent party’s actions (or inaction) were so egregious that it is socially offensive.
