What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Choking Accidents and Children

Due to their smaller size and lack of maturity, children are at an increased risk of choking accidents. Choking can cause serious injuries and even fatalities, especially in children. That is why it is important to know what foods and objects pose the greatest threat to your child or the children in your care.

If your dependent or someone you care about has suffered from a choking accident due to the negligence of another party, you may be eligible for compensation. The Jacksonville personal injury attorney Donald Guthrie, P.A. has the experience and support you need when navigating the legal system to collect damages. Contact our offices today at 904-296-1088 to get started on your case.

Common Choking Hazards

While almost anything small poses a choking threat for children, there are certain items that are more likely to cause injuries. These include:

  • Pennies
  • Hotdogs
  • Small toys, such as marbles
  • Nuts
  • Marshmallows
  • Grapes
  • Carrots
  • Peanut butter

Small children should not have free access to these items, especially when there is not an adult nearby to supervise. In addition, if children are going to be fed foods like hotdogs or grapes, they need to be carefully prepared by cutting them into small sizes to minimize the choking risk. Unfortunately, negligent caretakers sometimes endanger children by serving inappropriate foods or allowing them to play with small items.
