Injury to Children and Minors

Dealing with the serious injury or death of a child is one of the most devastating tragedies a family can endure. At Abels & Annes, we understand that no amount of compensation can begin to repay a family dealing with the injury or loss of a child.

But our Arizona child injury attorneys also understand how critical it can be for families to seek legal help. Nothing we do is more important than ensuring that you and your family have the resources necessary to properly treat and care for a child who has been seriously injured –– or to begin rebuilding you life in the wake of a child's accidental death.

When a child is hurt, a parent or legal guardian will need to seek a claim or lawsuit on a child's behalf. Child injury claims are complex injury and wrongful death matters, often complicated by medical issues associated with growth and development and by the legal issues involved with bringing a claim for damages on behalf of a minor child.

At Abels & Annes, we help ensure that your child's rights are well protected. We will thoroughly investigate your case and fight for the compensation your family needs to help deal with the medical, legal and emotional challenges of dealing with the serious injury or death of a child.
