Can I Bring a Personal Injury Claim on Behalf of a Child?

If your child or ward suffers from a serious injury at the hands of another, it’s only natural to wonder whether you can bring a lawsuit on your child’s behalf. Fortunately, parents and legal guardians are generally afforded the right to present a personal injury claim on their child’s behalf. However, the minor will not be afforded that right in most cases.

For help with your child’s personal injury claim, contact the experienced legal team at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP today.

Filing on Behalf of a Child

Filing an injury claim on behalf of a child is often necessary when your child has been injured because your child deserves compensation but cannot file a claim if he or she is younger than eighteen.

With an experienced personal injury lawyer’s help, you can file on behalf of your child and win the compensation your child deserves for his or her injuries. However, the money you win will, in most cases, be placed into a special account that the child cannot touch until he or she is an adult.

As the parent, you might have to pay some medical bills and other expenses related to your child’s injury. In such cases, your attorney can help you ask the court for some of the compensation you won to cover those expenses.

Contact a New York Personal Injury Lawyer

If your child has been hurt in an accident, you know very well how important it is to recover fair and comprehensive compensation. To maximize the chances of your child’s full recovery, contact a New York personal injury lawyer at Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP today.
