Parents: Protect your kids after injury-causing accidents

What could be more fun for a child than a roller coaster inside a pizza restaurant? That's probably what six kids and their parents were thinking when they decided to go to such an establishment recently. However, the trip ended up being anything but fun thanks to a roller coaster accident.

According to reports, one of the wheels on the roller coaster, which was about five feet off the ground, fell off the ride. There were several kids on the ride at the time who lurched forward when the ride came to a sudden stop. At least six kids suffered injuries that appeared to be minor, and it is not known yet if any of the families will be filing a legal claim.

In situations like this, a legal claim could be filed against the owner of the establishment and/or the party responsible for maintaining a ride. When you operate a venue that attracts kids and offers rides, you have an obligation to take all necessary precautions to keep kids safe.

When this doesn't happen, children can be seriously hurt. These incidents have the potential to be catastrophic because of how vulnerable our kids are, physically and emotionally. Injuries that would fade for adults or be treated with powerful pain medication can be traumatic for a young person.

Further, children can have a more difficult time putting into words how they are feeling, making it difficult to assess the extent of damages right away. An adult who has been injured in an accident can identify certain emotions they are experiencing afterward as anxiety, PTSD or depression. Children, on the other hand, can suffer with these same emotional damages but they cannot identify them, let alone treat them.

Even minor accidents have the potential to cause serious injuries to children, so it is vital that parents take action to protect injured kids. Pursuing compensation from a negligent party is a good way for parents to collect the money they deserve to ensure their child gets the care they need.
