Nothing is more frightening to a parent than to learn that your child has been injured in an accident. At the law firm of Chatham Gilder Howell Pittman, our lawyers hope you never have to go through the experience of dealing with a child injury that is serious.

Our Child Injury Attorney Can Help

However, if the unthinkable has happened, our lawyers are here to help you get through it. We represent children and their families in Hernando, Olive Branch, Horn Lake, and all of Northern Mississippi. If your child’s injury has been caused by the negligence of another party, he or she may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, emotional distress, and other damages.

Compensation for Your Child’s Needs Now & in the Future

The long-term effects of an injury are not always apparent. Our lawyers will help you evaluate the needs your child may have now and in the future.

Some injuries can lead to future problems. Some examples include:

  • Blows to the head can cause concussions and even permanent brain damage.
  • Scars and other marks, which can wreak havoc on a child’s self-confidence. Because your child is not fully grown, doctors may not be able to perform cosmetic surgery for several years.
  • Your child may need counseling to overcome fears from the accident.
  • Neck and back injuries can cause permanent impairment and prevent your child from doing the things he or she enjoys.
  • Loss of limbs, such as fingers, hands, feet, arms, and legs, can limit a child’s mobility or ability to obtain gainful employment later in life.

Statute of Limitations for Child Injury Claims

In Mississippi, the statute of limitation for a child’s personal injury case can be many years. The statute of limitations may not even begin running until your child turns 21. Don’t wait to file a claim on your child’s behalf. Their injuries could end up costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars the at-fault party may be liable for.
