The Experience to Handle Personal Injury Cases Involving Children
Personal injury cases involving injuries to children are complicated and emotionally sensitive. They often involve negligence by people we trust to keep our kids safe — drivers, day care providers and even other parents.
It takes an insightful and experienced personal injury attorney to handle a case involving an injured child. Attorney Paul Englander is certified as a specialist in injury and wrongful death litigation by the State Bar of Arizona Board of Legal Specialization. Only 1 percent of all Arizona lawyers have earned this designation.
Attorney Englander will carefully review all of the evidence to determine if negligence caused the injuries and if safety measures should have been taken.

We can help your child recover from any type of playground injury, day care injury or other type of harm, including:

- Broken bones
- Neck and back injuries
- Head and traumatic brain injuries

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious public health concern that can result in disability for thousands of people each year. TBI is a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or a penetrating head injury, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Everyone is at risk for a TBI, especially children and older adults. Most TBIs are mild and are commonly caused by falls and motor vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles and pedestrians. A mild TBI is commonly referred to as a concussion. Symptoms of TBI typically fit into the following categories:
- Thinking/remembering: difficulty thinking clearly, feeling slowed down, difficulty concentrating, difficulty remembering new information
- Physical: headache, fuzzy or blurry vision, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, sensitivity to light or noise, balance problems, feeling tired, having no energy
- Emotional/mood: irritability, sadness, more emotional, nervousness or anxiety
- Sleep: sleeping more or less than usual, trouble falling asleep
Signs of TBI may appear right away, or days or months after the injury. Victims may not notice changes until they resume their everyday life. Sometimes people do not recognize or want to admit that they are having problems. People who suffer concussions may look fine even though they are acting or feeling differently. After a collision, a personal injury lawyer can assess fault, investigate insurance coverage and evaluate claims for serious injuries and damages.
