What Our Tampa Child Injury Lawyer Can Do For Your Child

To ensure that we secure the compensation your child is entitled to, the Tampa child injury lawyers at Hancock Injury Attorneys will:

Determine and Prove Who Should Be Held Liable for Your Child’s Injuries

In some cases, the fault for an incident is obvious, such as when a driver hits your child. In other cases, however, such as when your child is injured in a group environment, like in school or when playing in a public park or a friend’s house, the fault for the incident may not be clear. In such cases, one or more people or entities may be liable for your child’s injuries, including:

  • A property owner
  • A teacher, caregiver, or coach
  • A babysitter
  • A school
  • A church
  • A camp counselor
  • A product manufacturer or retailer
  • A government agency
