As a North Carolina (NC) licensed injury lawyer 20+ years of representing injury victims and their families who have family members who suffered through a child or teen's wrongful death, amputation, paralysis, and other horrible injuries in all sorts of accidents, I want to share my knowledge and provide some helpful tips to parents throughout the Carolinas so their children or teens don't wind up in the hospital with a permanent, life-altering injury. This report offers a unique perspective on a parent’s health and safety tip sheet and an injury prevention checklist for protecting your children or teenagers from preventable injury or even death.
