Children depend on adults to provide a safe and nurturing environment. A lack of supervision or safety requirements on playgrounds, in schools or around swimming pools can put children at great risk of serious and even life-threatening injuries.
At the law firm of Krivitzky, Springer & Feldman, we provide a strong voice for children and their families throughout New Jersey. We understand that injuries can have lasting physical and emotional ramifications. Our law firm is committed to holding accountable any person, business, or school which has allowed a child to be injured.
Types of Claims for Injuries to Children
Children can be injured in many ways. Some injuries are just part of childhood – knee scrapes, falling off a bicycle, running into the wall, etc. But sometimes children are injured because someone was negligent or reckless. In addition to the usual personal injury claims such as car accidents, children hit by cars, or children hurt on broken sidewalks or dangerous playground equipment, there are many times where the injury results from a lack of proper supervision.
Schools, camps, theme parks, children’s activity centers and other facilities have a duty to supervise children and prevent them from injuring one another or engaging in dangerous activities. When these places fail to properly supervise children, they can be held responsible for the injuries and damages that result.
For more than 40 years, we have represented injured children throughout New Jersey in many kinds of claims, including:

Difficulties in Cases Involving Injury to Children
Proving fault in personal injury accidents involving children can be especially complicated. In some circumstances, children are unable to remember or explain how an accident occurred. In other situations, the witnesses may also be minors, possibly in fear of telling the truth.
Our law firm’s New Jersey personal injury lawyers draw on over 95 years of combined experience to prove each case. Our investigation may include: obtaining records such as repair records for playground equipment, employee logs for schools or daycare centers, statements from any witnesses; identifying any possible video surveillance footage, and retaining safety or engineering experts to review the accident scene and factual history.
We will aggressively pursue premises liability claims against property owners for failing to maintain safe premises. We will make every effort to hold schools, daycare centers, party stores, or negligent vehicle operators responsible for injuries to New Jersey children.
Children Injured by Dangerous Products
Our law firm also has an extensive background handling product liability claims against manufacturers who overlooked safety requirements and put children at great risk. We will identify any available insurance for medical bills or liability coverage and pursue all possible claims.
Don’t Delay – There May be Deadlines
For claims against most schools, parks, cities, towns, and other public entities, a specific Notice of Claim must be filed within 90 days. Contact our Jersey City lawyers immediately to protect your child’s rights.
