Injuries To A Disabled Child
An injury to a disabled child is distressing for all involved. According to the US Census Bureau, in 2010, there were 2.8 million school-aged children in the US civilian, noninstitutionalized population. The number of those that suffer an injury is unreported, but the types of injuries vary significantly. A disabled child could suffer an injury at birth, or be injured at school, during transportation on the bus to and from school, on the playground, at home, or while in the care of another. Because children with disabilities require special care, when one charged with providing that special care neglects his duty, the child could become seriously injured.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Children are exposed to many hazards and risks as they grow and develop into adulthood, and unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death and disability for children and teenagers in the United States. The physical, social, cultural, political and economic environments in which they live can significantly increase or decrease their injury risks.”
The CDC further explains that children are more susceptible to injuries because of their size, growth and development, curiosity, and inexperience. Injuries that a disabled child could experience include those related to motor vehicles, poisoning, burns, falls, and even wrongful death due to the negligent care or negligent supervision of the caregiver. Medical malpractice, misdiagnosis, or preventable infections could result in injuries sustained by a disabled child.
