The threats to a happy and safe childhood are everywhere: shaken baby syndrome, car accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents and bicycle accidents caused by careless drivers, burns caused by unsafe products, inattentive adults, caretakers and negligent and abusive adults, dog bites, house fires, unfenced pools, windows without guards, unsafe toys, unsafe child products, and unlocked guns and household chemicals, to name a few.
estimates that almost one million cases of child abuse or neglect are reported in the United States each year. Children who are victims of neglect or abuse suffer not only the physical manifestation of this abuse, but must also endure painful emotional and psychological suffering. The physical, emotional, and psychological consequences of abuse and neglect can take years to overcome. In cases where a baby or child has lost his or her life due to abuse or neglect, the results are unimaginably tragic.
You may be asking yourself how you can help a child who has been left to face the consequences of wrongdoing by an adult. You may want to seek justice, and ensure that the child receives coverage for his or her long-term medical and psychological needs, in addition to any compensation for pain and suffering. This is where Coeur d’Alene attorney James Bendell can help. James is an experienced personal injury attorney, and has over three decades of trial experience.
