One of the worst experiences for a parent is when his or her child is injured. As a parent, you protect your child from harm each day. When your child is injured, you feel helpless because you cannot take your child’s pain away. The heartache felt by parents who are dealing with a child injury can be overwhelming. In addition to dealing with the emotional pain of watching their child struggle with the pain from an injury, the parents also must deal with the financial burden of medical bills and lost wages because of another person’s reckless or negligent acts.
