Tucson Child Injury Lawyers
It is estimated that approximately 45 percent of accidental injury deaths occur in and around the home. The primary types of accidents involving children include:
- Drowning while playing unattended in a bathtub or swimming pool.
- Gunshot wounds: Adults are still careless even today about leaving a loaded gun in a home with children.
- Drinking chemicals and poisons: Babies and small children can’t read the warning labels on the sides of a can of insecticide or cleaning products. It’s important to keep lower cabinets locked or these products stored up high if you have small children.
- Fire and burns: These types of accidents can be life-threatening. A child can carelessly pull a hot pan full of boiling liquid off the stove. Children are often fascinated by fire and may sneak away to another room to play with a lighter or matches.

I did not know what to do. I had never been hurt in a wreck before and this was a major accident that was not my fault. I reached out to Zinda Law Group and they were fantastic, answered all my questions, got me help immediately, and took care of everything!!
There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.
There is a reason why this law firm has a 5 star rating. My experience with personal injury attorney Joe Caputo and all of the staff at Zinda Law Group has been excellent... I would definitely recommend Zinda Law Group.
Maria Ciara-Former Client
This is a really great firm! They settled my personal injury case in a year. Throughout the whole process, they were keeping in touch with me and helping me get the best treatment possible. They honestly know what they are doing. It was a pleasure working with these guys.
Everyone was so professional and was very interested in helping me with my issues. They were very upfront and honest about what I could expect.
I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.
Teach Your Kids Well
A large number of accidents involving children are avoidable. The sad fact is that you can’t watch your children every moment of every day. All you can do is teach them to stay away from harmful things like guns, matches, and poisons. Take the time to explain that something is harmful and why to kids. Even though they may not seem to be paying attention, they often do absorb more of what their parents say than we think.
Survey the Home Regularly for Hazards
Check your home regularly for potential hazards and make certain you baby-proof and childproof each area. Make sure that hazardous products are kept far away from kids and not accidentally left out where they can reach them. This is something that parents should commit to doing each month instead of just once or twice. We can all get careless over the course of time and haphazardly leave cleansers or poisons out where a baby might get to them.
Accidents You Can’t Avoid
Sometimes an accident is simply unavoidable. You’ve done everything you could to prepare your kids, and you’ve eliminated the harmful items around the house. And yet, one day you go to a local park and your child falls off the playground equipment, injuring his or her head. Someone at the day care fails in their duty and your child falls from a high place or is injured by another child. Your baby’s car seat latch is faulty and your child is thrown out of the car seat during a minor fender bender. The list of potential accidents is endless.
Once the parents come to their senses, the first thing they usually want to know is how the accident occurred. Was someone negligent? Did some product fail? Who is to blame? In many cases there is a clear cause and effect. You may need help to arrive at the correct answer, but this is an important step in moving on from a serious accident where you child was injured.
