Child Personal Injury Claims in California

In many ways, child personal injury claims are more complex than claims involving adults.

  • Children have a limited ability to protect themselves. The courts will consider this when determining liability in a child personal injury claim.
  • We must take a forward-thinking approach when valuing a child’s compensation claim. This is due to the age and stage of their development. The full extent of an injury may not manifest for many years.
  • Where possible, the aim is to negotiate a settlement rather than go to trial. This is because a trial process is stressful for the child. However, if court is required, the May Firm will represent your child with the commitment they deserve.

How a Child Injury Lawyer Values a Personal Injury Claim

Lawyers for minors will consider all relevant losses when valuing your child’s claim. These losses include financial losses, such as medical bills. However, they also include the pain and suffering your child has experienced.

Every child injury claim is entirely unique. Your attorney will provide you with an accurate valuation after considering the evidence available. Evidence which can help includes medical records, pictures, and transport costs. We can also consider any impact on your child’s quality of life, including their ability to attend school and socialize.

Statute of Limitations for Child Injury Claims

The statute of limitations places a “time limit” on filing personal injury claims. The time limits vary depending on whether the victim is a minor or adult.

  • Adults normally have up to two years from the accident date to file a compensation claim.
  • For minors, you normally have up to two years from the minor’s 18th birthday to file for compensation. This means that even if a child is very young, their right to compensation endures for a prolonged period.
  • If it’s a medical malpractice claim, you may only have one year from the date the claimant learned of the injury.
  • Should the child be under six when the medical malpractice occurs, you must file within a year of their 18th birthday.

These timeframes reflect the relative age and developmental stage of a child. It also allows time for injuries, should they be more complex, to manifest. But given how complicated these timeframes are, you should get legal advice. Our California child injury attorneys can explain, in detail, what time limits apply in your child’s case.

Why You Should Hire a Children’s Injury Lawyer Urgently

Although you have what seems to be a long time to file a children’s injury claim, there’s no reason to delay. The longer you wait to file a claim, the harder it is to prove. Vital evidence may be lost, and the at-fault party might question the reasons for the delay.

Even if you don’t yet know the full extent of your child’s injuries, or long-term needs, don’t delay. We can factor this uncertainty into your child’s compensation claim valuation.

Understand that your child has legal rights to compensation for their pain and suffering. And our lawyers for minors are here to ensure that these rights are upheld.
