It goes without saying that when your child suffers serious injuries, you want only the best for them. Children automatically look to adults when it comes to their safety and general well being. Not only do children look to us as adults in keeping them safe, but it is our duty to do so, especially when someone has entrusted us with the care of their children for one reason or another. Unfortunately when we have trusted another to care for our children the way they should be, this does not always happen with good care or good judgment from the adult. There can be many different causes of negligence where a child can become very seriously injured while we have entrusted them in the care of another person.

When your child suffers serious injuries, you want only the best for them. One of the most important things you can do would be to consult with an attorney who specializes in child injuries, including child abuse and neglect, and in some cases even wrongful death. A professional and compassionate attorney in the Oceanside, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, or San Diego areas will be understanding and compassionate to the situation you are facing. They will apply their expertise and knowledge in reviewing and studying your child injury case, to determine any negligence that has occurred.

One very sad and unfortunate situation which can result in either very serious injuries or even wrongful death to children would be with the shaken baby syndrome. This terrible tragedy has been known to happen many times unfortunately even with very close friends, institutions, and even very close family members whom we have put our complete trust and faith in.

Some of the other accidents that can result in serious injuries to children due to negligence of an adult that is supervising them could be from automobile accidents, attacks from a dog, motorcycle accidents or recreational vehicle accidents, firearm accidents, poisoning from household chemicals and many others.

Many of the serious injuries that a child can suffer from as a direct result from child abuse or child neglect from a person who should have shown great care and responsibility, can include concussions, broken or fractured bones, loss of vision, paralysis, lacerations and scarring, or even trauma to the spine or spinal cord, such as a herniated disc or bulging disc or other spinal cord injuries. Often times a child may even need the services of a professional and knowledgeable child psychologist because of the emotional trauma they might have also suffered from while sustaining any injuries inflicted upon them from someone they’ve loved and trusted themselves.

If you live in the Orange county or surrounding areas and you find yourself or one of your family members in need of professional help when your child suffers serious injuries, and you want only the best for them, you need to contact an attorney who specializes in Orange County child abuse, warranting California child neglect attorneys, or Los Angeles wrongful death lawyers, you will want the assurance of knowing the child injury attorneys you retain will do everything possible in determining the negligence of your case as well as making sure you receive the highest amount possible by law for your particular case.

Missing at sea is a not too uncommon situation a passenger can be faced with, according to cruise ship attorney Michael Ehline, of Ehline Law Firm PC.

According to the U.S. Coast Guard, they are still searching for a 65-year-old woman who was reported missing from the Celebrity Millennium cruise ship early Tuesday.

The Coast Guard reported that the 65-year-old woman who was a passenger on the San Diego and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico cruise, via the Celebrity Millennium, was reported missing early Tuesday when she did not show up for a customs check.

According to U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Henry Dunphy, the 65 year old woman was seen on the cruise ship after it stopped at Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, while in transit, but was found to be missing in San Diego. She was reported missing at approximately 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday and her name is currently not being released.

“These types of situations are not uncommon on cruises”, says attorney Ehline, who runs a boutique injury law firm in Southern California. Ehline also said this could very well be another missing at sea case.

The USCG petty officer stated that it is possible that the woman went overboard and the Coast Guard is searching the 175 miles of the cruise ship route from Cabo San Lucas to San Diego. The Coast Guard reported that they used a HC-130 Hercules airplane that left Sacramento Tuesday and stopped after sunset. Wednesday the Coast Guard began using ships to search the water, along with planes.

According to FBI spokesman, Darrell Foxworth, investigators from their agency are also investigating the 65-year-old woman’s disappearance. So far, there is no evidence of foul play.
The cruise according to authorities began in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with San Diego as its first U.S. port of call after stopping in Cabo San Lucas, with its final destination Vancouver, British Columbia.
