What does compensation cover for my child?
If you are the parent or guardian of a minor who was injured, you can file
a personal injury case on their behalf. You have two years from the date
of injury to file your claim. If you were injured as a child and wish
to take legal action, you have two years from your eighteenth birthday
to act or two years from the date you were emancipated (or deemed to be
an adult). In general, an injured child can recover the same compensation
amount as an adult.
Compensation for injured victims typically includes:
- Medical treatment
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of income in the future
Parents may also be able to recover medical bills, lost income, and other
costs incurred on behalf of the injured minor (while he/she is a minor).
