As More Families Move to West Texas, Our Attorneys Are Ready to Help
With its small-town charm, Midland has become a popular place to live. According to a study by WalletHub, Midland was the second-fastest-growing city in the country in 2018. Now, The Midland Development Corporation estimates the Tall City’s population will reach 230,000 people by 2030. That means more families with children are moving to the Permian Basin, and thus, an increasing need for experienced West Texas attorneys, like those at The Button Law Firm. Our Texas child injury lawyer is dedicated to advocating for innocent children and their families in the event that an unspeakable incident has harmed or injured them.
Common Child Injuries and How They Happen in Midland
We know parents in Midland are doing everything they can to keep their children safe. However, sometimes the worst nightmare for parents becomes a reality: Their child is seriously injured in daycare or foster care, at a family-oriented venue like a theme park, or even while riding on a school bus.
Unfortunately, children are more susceptible to serious injuries than adults. Their bodies are small and still developing, so any impact can result in more damage to their skull, spinal cord, bones, and brain. Also, children lack the ability to judge or assess the safety issues that arise from everyday items. A vast majority of the time, injuries that children sustain are preventable with the proper supervision. Examples of serious injuries caused by neglect, abuse, or facility mismanagement in West Texas include:
- Broken Bones
- Emotional Trauma
- Physical Abuse
- Severed Fingers, Arms, Legs, or Toes
- Sexual Abuse
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Tears in Joints or Muscles
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
Our Midland-based law firm is here to help families like yours navigate these awful situations and hold the responsible individuals/parties accountable. In our experience, the most common injuries to children are caused by:
- Amusement, Theme Parks, and Water Parks: Preventable accidents at amusement and theme parks in the Permian Basin like Joyland Amusement Park and Water Rampage can leave children severely injured.
- Daycare Abuse and Neglect: Many parents in Midland rely on daycares to take care of their children while they are at work. Sadly, some daycare centers cut corners resulting in unsafe environments for the children they are supposed to be protecting.
- Foster Care Abuse and Neglect: The Texas foster care system is one of the largest in the country, and unfortunately, there are cracks in the system that put innocent children in harm's way, leaving them vulnerable to abuse and neglect.
- School Buses: When parents send their children to school on a bus, they trust that their most precious cargo, their kids, will arrive safely. However, this is not always the case for some of the 1.3 million Texas students who ride a school bus every day.
- Summer Camps: Summer camp is an exciting adventure for kids, but serious injuries and harm can occur that ruin your child’s experience.
- Toys: Toys allow children to grow their imaginations, explore creativity, and even help with learning through play. However, children can be seriously harmed when they are not supervised properly while playing.
