Not every personal injury lawyer is equipped to handle the complex issues involved in a case where your child is injured in an accident. The legal standards and procedures for handling cases involving children and minors differ from other types of accident and injury cases. It is important to promptly seek competent counselors, like Eric Gruber of Gruber Law Group, who is experienced in this complex area of law.

Child Injury Claims Require Specialized Knowledge

One area where children’s injuries are different is the determination of liability. Children are typically not held to the same standard as adults. Instead of being compared to a reasonable person, as adults are, a child is compared to a typical child of the same age and experience. Second, a child is appointed a guardian ad litem by the court. The guardian ad litem is an adult that acts on behalf of the child. Usually the guardian ad litem is a parent.

The time limits are different in regards to cases involving children. The statute of limitations time limit doesn’t begin until the child reaches the age of 18. But, it’s important to remember that there are exceptions that an experienced attorney will know.

In addition to the above, there are some issues regarding any settlements involving children. A detailed petition must be filed with the court in order for the court to approve the settlement. The judge will decide whether the settlement is fair and in the best interest of the child.

Many Accidents Are Caused Due To Other People’s Negligence

According to the Centers for Disease Control, 12,175 children ages 0 to 19 die each year in the United States from accidental injury. Car accident and traffic injuries are the leading causes of death among all children, followed by burns, drowning, falls, and poisoning. Millions more children are saddled with permanent and severe disabilities leaving them disfigured or unable to see, hear, talk, walk, or think. Each year 9.2 million children go to the emergency department for a non-fatal accidental injury. The leading causes of non-fatal injuries to children are falls, car accidents, and dog and animal bites.

Many of these deaths and injuries result from the negligent or reckless conduct of other people, corporations, and governmental entities. When a child dies or is seriously injured in an accident, the loss to you and your family is immeasurable. Child injury cases often result in tremendous medical costs and medical treatments that can last a lifetime, affecting your son or daughter’s ability to begin a career and make a living wage, and threatening your family’s financial stability.  If your child was injured or died in an accident, it is wise to seek the advice of an experienced child injury attorney who will stand up against the insurance companies and at-fault parties to get your child and family the justice and compensation you deserve.
