If My Child Suffers a Fireworks Injury at a Neighbor's House, What Insurance is Available to Pay for Their Injury and Medical Costs?

Homeowners insurance policies will provide coverage for the negligence of the homeowner. Almost any act of a neighbor handling or permitting the use of fireworks which cause someone to be injured would be considered negligence and should be covered. The typical homeowners insurance policy in Florida provides up to $300,000 in liability coverage to pay for serious injuries and losses.

Because of the emotion involved, child injury cases are some of the most difficult to handle. Some of the injuries children suffer are the same as adults, such as auto accidents (the leading cause of injury to children) as well as slip/ falls.

But many injuries are unique to children. For example, burns, fireworks injuries, school injuries, daycare injuries, golf cart, scooter/razor injuries, bicycle injuries, dog bite/animal attacks, and playground injuries are some of the injuries our office handles which are unique to children. You need an attorney you can trust, one who is genuinely interested in protecting the rights of children, and who will advocate on behalf of your child and your family.
