Children can be particularly vulnerable to injuries. Children don’t have the same experience that adults have. Because of that, they don’t always understand the consequences of their actions, and they can’t always protect themselves from danger.
Parents, teachers, and other adult caregivers are responsible for protecting children when they can’t protect themselves. When they’re careless, and a child is hurt because of it, the responsible adults can be held liable for damages.

Children are often injured because of dangerous property conditions. Texas property owners have a legal duty to keep their property reasonably safe for invited guests and visitors.
Business owners in Texas must:
Most property owners don’t owe a duty of care to trespassers. However, under the attractive nuisance doctrine, even private property owners have a duty to protect trespassing children from attractive dangers on the premises. Swimming pools are a typical example of an “attractive nuisance.”

Schools, daycare centers, and even summer camps are required to provide appropriate supervision. That might mean they’re required to:
If your child’s caretaker failed to monitor them, it’s possible that their employer can also be held liable for damages if your child was injured.
You won’t have to prove negligence if your child was injured because of a defective product. Instead, manufacturers can be held strictly liable for your damages. You may have a valid case if your child was injured because of a defective toy, car seat, sports equipment, or even medications.
