Los Angeles Child Injury Lawyer
Children are precious, and as much as we as parents want to protect them from harm, we know we can’t always be around them all the time. Injuries like cuts, scratches, and bruises are part of growing up. But serious injuries caused by the negligence of another is a different matter.
Cohen & Marzban is one of the top Los Angeles child injury lawyer firms.
We help parents or guardians whose children suffered serious injuries in an accident due to the negligence of another party to receive the compensation they deserve.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), child injuries are preventable, yet more than 9,000 children die from injuries in the United States every year.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if my child or I are partly to blame for the accident?
California follows a pure comparative negligence rule. It means the defendant doesn’t have to be 100% at fault before you can claim compensation for their negligence.
For example, a jury might find you were 20% at fault, and the defendant was 80% at fault. If the damages total $1 million, you will only be entitled to $800,000.
What compensation can I claim for injuries my child sustained?
The compensation you might be entitled to includes the following:
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost wages (for parents or guardians)
- Pain and suffering
- Home care costs
- Household and vehicle modifications
- Emotional distress
- Special schools or educational programs
- Punitive damages (in gross negligence cases)
- Funeral costs (in wrongful death cases)
An expert child injury attorney at Cohen & Marzban will be able to provide you with more details after examining your case.
Can my child injury case be settled outside court?
Understandably, parents or guardians want to protect their children from any emotional turmoil that’s often associated with a court case.
The vast majority of personal injury cases, including child injury cases, are settled out of court or before it goes to trial. An experienced and knowledgeable child injury lawyer can help you get the best settlement without the need for litigation.
Should the defendant not be willing to offer a fair settlement amount, your case may have to go to trial. However, courts are sympathetic toward the needs of children, and your attorney will help you navigate the process with the least stress possible.
