Childhood injuries occur with car seats, furniture, toys, playground equipment and more. Many factors influence children’s injuries and many children's injuries are preventable. Case examples and news stories illustrate the unnoticed hazards throughout a home, school, or other parts of a child's daily routine, and how those hazards cause injury. You’ll learn about attending to potential hazards. You'll learn about the standards for labeling products, installing equipment, self-regulation and government regulation in standards and agencies that set standards to protect children. You'll be shown the pertinent laws and case studies that deal with the issues presented in this book. Beyond this, you'll learn from economists how earning capacity and damages can be calculated for a child who has been permanently impaired. You'll learn how this affects the rest of the family financially, and how you can litigate the case to recover sustained damages. Click on the book title for more information
