Children Accidents: Poisoning or Negligent Intoxication of Alcohol

Unfortunately, these types of accidents happen all too often.  I once represented an injured child when he was served lemonade with alcohol in it at local corporate chain restaurant.  Fortunately, the emergency medical care he received and the two days he was monitored medically made all the difference in the world for him.  The restaurant changed the way it serves its alcoholic beverages to ensure no alcohol make it in a child’s drink cup, and I always advise parents to taste their child’s drink when dining out in a restaurant because you simply never know what danger can be lurking when it comes to a young child.
