If your child was injured or passed away after an accident, the legal concept of negligence comes into play.
A lawsuit brought against a negligent party has value. Not only does it send a message to the community, but it provides compensation to help cover costs like medical expenses and rehabilitation as well as non-economic damages like pain and suffering.

To prove negligence, several factors must be established:
- The defendant owed the child a “duty of care”: This is the legal duty to act in a prudent, reasonable manner so that others are not put at risk of injury. An example would be driving safely.
- Breach of duty of care: The actions of the other party must have violated (breached) the legal duty of care.
- Causation: The breach was the action that led to the injury or death.
- Damages: The injuries or loss of life resulted in damages, either to the injured child, or the parents.
