Advocating For Children Who Suffer Injuries

Cases involving injuries to children require special attention and a compassionate approach. At Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford, our attorneys have decades of experience handling personal injury cases involving children. We handle these situations with care, doing everything possible to compensate the child and protect his or her future.

Cases involving children can come about in many ways. Car accidents are one of the most common causes – all too often, a drunk or distracted driver will strike a family vehicle, causing widespread injuries. Dog bites, hazardous toys and poorly supervised day care facilities are also significant dangers to children.

The Statute Of Limitations

In Pennsylvania, adults have two years to file a personal injury claim after they have been hurt in an accident. This statute of limitations also applies to children, but with one important difference: the clock does not start to run until the child reaches age 18.

This can be a significant benefit in many situations. After a serious accident, it may not be apparent for some time how well the injury will heal, or how it will affect the child's growth and development. The extra time can be a great benefit, giving parents additional information they can use in a personal injury case.

Though the statute of limitations does not begin until your child is age 18, it is still extremely important that you start gathering evidence and building your case today. If your child has suffered an injury, contact our law firm. One of our experienced lawyers will meet with your family and guide you through the process ahead.
