Protection And Support For Your Children

We do everything necessary to protect our children. And we all know that children don't always understand the consequences of making poor decisions, like playing in the street or riding their bicycle recklessly. When a child is hit by a car or injured in an accident because of an adult's negligence, however, it is an injustice that can have a lasting impact.

I am attorney Edward Shaughnessy. If your child suffered an injury in a car accident, while playing on a public or private property or because of a dangerous or defective toy, call me for help. I am a lifelong resident of the Lehigh Valley and have been helping families recover monetary damages for injuries to children for more than 25 years. Insurance defense lawyers often try to blame the child in lawsuits involving an injury to a child. I hold the negligent party to the highest level of adult responsibility when children are involved.

Legal Support For A Wide Range Of Children's Injuries

I have experience representing families in personal injury and wrongful death litigation involving children, including:

  • Child riding bike hit by car or while walking on a road
  • Child injured while playing with a toy
  • Child injured while playing on a swing set
  • Child injured while swimming at a neighbor's pool
  • Child bitten by dog
  • Child injured because of a doctor's mistake

Call my Easton office at either 610-365-7892 or toll free at 877-245-0251 to arrange a free consultation. You can also reach me online. If your injuries or circumstances won't allow you to travel, I may be able to arrange a meeting at a location and time convenient for you and your family. I handle all car accident and civil litigation cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay attorneys' fees* unless and until we win.

*Prior to signing a retainer agreement, we will fully explain certain costs or expenses you may be responsible for in the event that no recovery is obtained.
