Questions For Your Child Injury Lawyer

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may have questions about whether you have a case or the timing involved with filing a lawsuit for child abuse or injuries. Here are answers to what many of our clients want to know.

What can I do if my child has suffered serious injuries due to someone else's actions?

With child injury cases, we urge parents not to file a claim on their own or confront the person who harmed their child. It’s natural to want to do this, but an emotional conflict can wind up working against your ultimate goal of seeking justice for your child.

The best thing to do is to make an appointment with one of our attorneys. Cooper Elliott has many years of experience successfully fighting for justice for babies and children. We listen to your story and explain the different legal options available to you so you can make an informed decision about what to do next.

Your initial consultation is free, and if we file a claim on your behalf, you only pay if you win a lawsuit or settle out of court. Our firm doesn’t charge hidden fees, and there’s no hard sell to work with us.

What do I ask for in a child injury or wrongful death claim?

Whether your case settles out of court or goes to trial, your attorney will seek financial compensation for medical expenses, therapy, lost wages if you stopped working to care for your child, pain, and suffering, and punitive damages.

If you are like a lot of parents, this is not about the money. You want to change the system to protect other families from experiencing such devastation. Child injury lawyers at Cooper Elliott have successfully negotiated changes to school district policies, housing safety requirements, public safety announcements, and amusement park ride standards.

Is there a deadline for filing a claim?

Yes. Each state has its own rules specifying how long you have to file a claim for injuries to a child or baby. The legal term for this is statute of limitations.

Since minors cannot hire an attorney, the time for filing a claim or lawsuit is often extended until after the child turns 18. This also provides time to carefully evaluate the injury and make certain all harms are known.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney for a child injury lawsuit?

Some law firms charge by the hour. Cooper Elliott offers free consultations, and we are paid only if we win your lawsuit or settle your claim out of court. We’ll discuss the details with you every step of the way so there are no surprises.

What documents should I bring to the first meeting with a Cooper Elliott lawyer?

You don’t need to bring anything to our first meeting, but if you have documentation that supports your case, please bring it with you. Here are some examples:

  • Notes documenting what you remember about the incident
  • Police report
  • Medical reports that describe your child’s injuries
  • Medical bills that describe treatments and costs
  • Insurance information of the responsible party

    I worked with Adam Richards and his team. They were empathetic to my situation and extremely professional. I don't know what I... would have done without their expert guidance and counsel. Adam really knows his stuff, and it was clear he had an excellent rapport with all who assisted in the case. Adam's communication abilities were next level. I never had to worry about getting ahold of him when needed. I know he and his team will continue to knock it out of the park for all future clients like they did for more

    My husband, Bob and I were injured in an automobile accident in December, 2022 when someone came through a Stop sign. We... contacted Cooper Elliott, and were fortunate to work with Sean Alto and Kaela King. They came to our home several times to meet us and discuss the case, and got to know us personally as well as professionally. They really care about their clients! In addition, Michael Tonovitz stayed in contact with us to keep us informed on the progress of the case, which was resolved to our satisfaction.We highly recommend this law firm for personal injury!read more

    I am so glad I found cooper Elliot. My attorneys Jon and Adam helped me through the entire process. After a traumatic experience... in my life I was confused and in pain. They worked tirelessly to become familiar with all the details of my story and represented me in a way that made me more able to process and understand the trauma myself. This was huge for me, while there’s still healing to do, I can do that work now instead of staying in a purgatory of cognitive dissonance. They didn’t just win justice for me, they are a significant part of my healing journey. They were validating, non judgmental, honest, and more

    Jonathan Bond handled a personal injury claim for me quickly with maximum results. He’s pleasant and enjoyable to work with, as... well as compassionate. The firm handled all the legwork of getting medical records and copies of paperwork, which not all firms do. I would recommend Jonathan to anyone and would definitely go back to him if the need were to arise more

    I honestly struggle to find the words to describe how incredible this firm is, especially Jeffrey Kenny and Sean Alto. 7 years... ago, my family started a journey through a nightmare. When the criminal justice system fell woefully short, Jeff agreed to take on our incredibly challenging and lengthy case, with no other reason than that it was the right thing to do, and he believed we deserved justice. There were so many times when I would have understood if they walked away, but they refused and vowed to get us the justice we deserved, and almost 7 years later, they have given my family just that. I will never, ever, forget what they have done for us. We were never just another case. They made us feel like we were their ONLY case! Thank you will never come close to the gratitude and respect I have for Jeff and Sean, as well as for Cooper Elliott. They will be superheroes in our home, forever!read more

    I would highly recommend Cooper Elliott to any of my friends and family! Chip Cooper was extremely helpful guiding me through a... difficult process. Chip was patient with me and provided feedback during the process that kept me informed until the desired outcome was achieved. There were interactions with other staff of the firm (whose names I do not know) that were helpful as well, I was impressed with the entire team!read more

    Adam Richards is the best attorney I have ever met. He is responsive and very patient (I had a lot of questions) and he truly... cares. He fought hard for me and he stands up to the bully. he is not afraid to take on anyone. Anytime I hear someone who has a legal issue I go out of my way to recommend Adam. He is unlike any attorney I have ever met. He is compassionate and he always answers his phone. There is no way I would have got the results I received with any other attorney. He was a bulldog in my case and really went to bat for me. Words cant express how grateful I am to him. His actions personally affected my life in a very positive way. He protected me in so many ways I couldn't begin to name them. It is a great feeling when you know your attorney outmatches the other party's attorney and it is more
