I mentioned yesterday that children potentially have much longer to bring personal injury claims than adults.
Other specific rules apply to personal injury claims brought by children. Historically children were not allowed to sue their parents. Over the years this rule changed. Now, with some exceptions, children can sue their parents for (1) intentional or reckless injuries and, much more commonly, (2) for injuries sustained in car accidents.
If your child is injured in a car accident–including one were you were at-fault–you should make sure your child is represented by a personal injury attorney to ensure his or her rights are protected.
