Injuries to Minors and Children
Generally, anyone under the age of 18 cannot file a lawsuit without the help of a parent, adult or guardian. Children and adolescents are at high risk for many injuries including those caused by:
- Cars and other motor vehicle wrecks
- Playground equipment
- Ingestion of household products such as cosmetics and personal care products, cleaning substances, pain relievers, foreign bodies, and plants
- Household fires
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Swimming-related accidents
In some instances these accidents can lead to death or severe disability. Personal injury lawsuits filed on behalf of children can therefore deal with the extraordinary costs that may be involved with the care of a severely injured child through their maturity and adult life.
