Children and Injuries

Ottawa Children, Accidents and Injuries

We stand up for children and their rights all over Ontario
 
 
Our Philosophy
 
For any parent there is nothing more important than our children. When a child is injured in an accident, parents are understandably usually devastated and consumed by grief. They worry endlessly and often feel guilt. This is all normal and understandable. Over the years, we have helped many families through this difficult time, assisting them at every step of the way towards making the negligent persons responsible for the accidents be held accountable and pay fair compensation.
 
There is absolutely no excuse for negligent or abusive actions or inactions which cause any child to suffer an injury. 
 
Whether your child has suffered because of an inattentive day care provider, negligent driver, incompetent manufacturer, careless teacher or an irresponsible corporation, your child has the unfettered right to hold those responsible for their injury accountable in a court of law. We can be the conduit by which the person or persons responsible are held accountable.
 
You need not fight alone. Let us, as dedicated and experienced experts, fight for you.
 
Following an accident of any type, you should consult an experienced professional for trusted and regulated advice. At Quinn Thiele Mineault Grodzki LLP, we recognize that, often, the injuries sustained by children have life long implications which may not always be obvious at the outset. We are prepared to fully analyze every aspect of your child's injury case and ensure that all steps are taken to protect your child's present and future interests.
 
Children are the most importing aspect of a parent's life. As the parent of an injured child, you should know that you are not alone and we can help. Seeing your child in pain is heartbreaking. We understand this and the case will proceed as fast or as slowly as you wish.
 
Children have a complete right to be always safe, healthy, and happy. As parents, caretakers, and responsible members of society, it is our collective responsibility to ensure our children are safe and free of danger.
 
Unfortunately, accidents happen and children can fall victim to the negligent acts of others. They may also fall to the recklessness of others, or worse, the intentional and malicious acts of others. 
 
In many if not most cases, the accidents could have been avoided had simple steps been taken to properly care for our children. When someone fails a child and a child is injured, it is just and right that we demand justice for the child.
 
At Quinn Thiele Mineault Grodzki, LLP, we recognize that representing children takes perseverance, compassion, dedication and special skill and knowledge.  There are many special legal rules to be followed when representing children. The law imposes obligations differently on lawyers and parents when it comes to representing the interest of children injured in accidents. For instance, settlements involving children require the approval of a Justice of the Superior Court of Justice, whether or not a court proceeding has been commenced. Unless Court approval is obtained, the settlement is not binding.
 
Not all lawyers are familiar with the special legal considerations involving children and how the law operates differently when it comes to children.  Our Ottawa children injury lawyers are trained to properly assess, represent, administer and finalize injury cases involving children. We handle such cases every day.
 
We work hard every day to protect the rights of children all over Ontario.  We have experienced lawyers, paralegals, law clerks and investigators who are focussed on assisting injured children and their families.
 
If your child has been injured or hurt in a preventable accident caused by negligence or carelessness of another, you should know that, with an experienced lawyer, most cases settle. 
 
Call us today at 613-315-4878. Marc-Nicholas Quinn is an Ottawa lawyer representing families and children injured in accidents. He is a frequent lecturer, teacher, lawyer, mediator and author writing frequently on personal injury issues. He offers free consultations and he does not charge a fee until he obtains a settlement.
