Injuries to Children in New Hampshire & the U.S.
According to America’s Health Rankings, the leading cause of death in children is accidents. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that 139,042 children suffered traffic accident injuries in 2020 with an average of three children killed and approximately 380 children injured daily.
These statistics highlight the dangers to children in potential accidents and injuries across the country. Unfortunately, traffic accidents are among the most prominent causes of injuries and fatalities for both children and adults.
Other causes of childhood injuries can include:
- Accidents on playgrounds
- Accidents on school property
- Accidents related to sports or other recreational activities
- Dog bites
- Bicycle accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Incidents of sexual abuse
- Incidents of neglect or other types of abuse
These accidents can result in a variety of injuries, from minor cuts and bruises to broken bones, sprains, whiplash, concussions, organ damage, broken teeth, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage, and even death.
Determining responsibility for a child's injury can be complex. It might be a negligent driver, a manufacturer of a faulty product, a property owner who didn't maintain safe conditions, or even a caregiver who failed to supervise properly. As a highly-experienced personal injury lawyer, Attorney Mark Rufo is skilled in investigating these situations and identifying the parties that may be held liable.

How much is my case worth?Every case is unique, and how much compensation you are eligible to receive depends on what evidence we can gather — so we can’t guarantee a certain amount. We can guarantee, however, that we will fight for every last penny you are entitled to for your medical treatment, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Why can’t I just accept the insurance company’s offer?Insurance companies make their money cheating you. Claims agents are trained to get you to agree to the lowest possible amount, so the company can continue to maximize its profit. The only way to look out for your best interests and ensure that you receive fair compensation is to seek counsel from an attorney who is experienced in standing up to these insurance companies.
What if I can’t afford an attorney?Personal injury lawyers do not cost anything upfront. In fact, we get paid only when you do — and we receive only a percentage of the compensation we secure for you. This means that not only can you afford high-quality representation, but you know we will be fighting for the maximum possible recovery, because our own pay depends on it, too.
