What Is A Child Injury?

Children bring an innocence and joy to our lives like nothing else can. As parents and caregivers we do our best to protect them from any harm. Unfortunately, there are times we can’t protect them. Auto accidents, careless medical mistakes, dangerous or defective products or drugs and even improper technique during the birthing process can cause severe child injuries.
