Pittsburgh Children Injury Attorney
Pittsburgh Child Injury Lawyer
Pennsylvania Personal Injury Attorney
Both medically and legally speaking, a serious injury to a child differs in many ways from a similar injury to an adult. A child’s physical and emotional development may be seriously impacted by a bone fracture, a dog bite or a burn injury. It can be challenging for medical professionals to forecast the full extent of medical treatment, plastic surgery and therapy that the victim will need over a lifetime. The Pittsburgh child injury lawyers of Hal Waldman and Associates have the experience you need to get the help you deserve.

Prompt Intervention Can Make a Difference
The good news is that in some cases, early intervention can make a significant difference in the outcome of your child’s healing and coping over time. A doctor will want to closely monitor the outcome of a broken bone to make sure that growth plates were not injured in such a way as to stunt future growth.
Be Aware of Psychological Ramifications
When a child’s self-esteem is affected by peers’ teasing after a serious injury, psychological counseling may be necessary to help a young boy or girl adjust and develop through the growing-up process. This and other needs that your child faces must be taken into account as insurers, judges or juries determine financial awards.
