Fort Worth Child Injury Lawyers
Put Years of Experience in Your Corner

We know that as a parent, you are concerned about your child's well-being

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).

In these types of cases, it is important to remember that an insurance
company will often deny or undervalue your claim. They will put the blame
on the child or blame the parents for "negligent supervision."

us both compassionate support and aggressive representation. To make our
services accessible to everyone, we are proud to offer
