The instinctive and unconditional love and joy for a child are among the strongest of human sentiments. So when a child is injured or killed, it can be the most tragic event parents and loved ones will ever have to endure.
If the child heals well and quickly, most parents will let a minor incident go depending on the scope of the injury. When the child’s injury has serious physical, emotional or permanent consequences, parents should talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer about their case. The attorneys at Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben will help you decide whether or not you should file a claim.
If your child is injured, you generally have until your child’s 18th birthday to bring a case on behalf of your child. Once the child turns 18, they have an additional year (their 19th birthday) to file a lawsuit. However, it’s generally not a very good idea to wait long since important evidence may be lost and the case of a younger child will be worth more than an older child who has generally recovered well from most injuries.
