The Loewy Law Firm finalized a $300,000 settlement on behalf of an Austin child who was seriously injured by his neighbor, another minor child. The neighbor child launched a rock negligently into the air and it tragically landed on our 6 yr old client’s head. He had to have emergency brain surgery and is dealing with the consequences of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
The negligent child was covered by his family’s Homeowners insurance policy. Under Texas law, each house must have Homeowners insurance. There are many instances where Homeowners insurance will cover a negligent act, even if the act did not occur on the property itself (as was the case here). It is very important to have an experienced personal injury lawyer like Adam Loewy review a potential case to see if Homeowners insurance coverage will cover it. Our law firm specializes in child injuries.
This was a tragic situation. The $300,000 settlement (which was the entire policy limits) will go to cover the child’s medical bills and family’s lost wages.
