How to File an Injury Claim on Your Child’s Behalf

When a child is injured due to the negligence or misconduct of another party, parents or legal guardians have the right to pursue compensation on their child's behalf. Filing an injury claim for a child involves specific procedures and considerations to ensure their best interests are protected. 

To file a successful lawsuit on behalf of a child there are some steps you need to follow:

  1. Seek Medical Attention: The first priority after your child has been injured is to seek prompt medical attention. Ensure that your child receives appropriate medical care for their injuries, and keep thorough records of all medical treatment and expenses incurred.
  2. Document the Incident: Gather as much evidence as possible related to the incident that caused your child's injury. This may include taking photographs of the scene, obtaining witness statements, and preserving any relevant physical evidence.
  3. Notify Relevant Parties: Inform the responsible party, such as the property owner, caregiver, or other involved parties, of the incident and your intention to file a claim on behalf of your child. Be sure to document all communications and interactions with these parties.
  4. Consult with an Attorney: It's crucial to seek legal guidance from an experienced personal injury attorney who specializes in child injury cases. A knowledgeable attorney can assess the circumstances of your child's injury, explain your legal rights and options, and guide you through the claims process.
  5. File the Injury Claim: Your attorney will help you prepare and file a formal injury claim on your child's behalf. This claim will outline the details of the incident, the extent of your child's injuries, and the damages you are seeking, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, and any future care or rehabilitation needs.

Extensive Needs, Significant Awards

In addition to obtaining compensation for the child’s treatment expenses, we will help you obtain damages for emotional and physical pain and suffering. In certain circumstances, we may be able to obtain punitive damages, depending on the nature of the accident or attack. Our goal is to give injured children a voice in court and seek a verdict or settlement that will compensate them for their suffering.
