Can I Bring a Personal Injury Claim on Behalf of a Child in CA?

Children aren’t immune to personal injuries and they should be compensated for their injuries and suffering just as adults are. In fact, some injuries can negatively impact a child in more ways than adults because children are still growing and developing. A serious injury could damage their development.

When someone’s negligence has caused your child to sustain injuries and the family to sustain losses, you might be wondering, Can I bring a personal injury claim on behalf of a child in CA? Yes, you can bring an injury claim—and you should.

Which Types of Negligent Accidents Affect Children?

A child can be injured in an accident of any kind, but some types of accidents affect children more than adults. For instance, children often suffer injuries caused by negligence while engaging in extracurricular events. Here’s a list of some common types of accidents that are known to impact children:

  • School abuse
  • Truck accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Premises liability accidents (slip-and-falls, trip-and-falls, swimming pool incidents, falls, dog attacks)
  • Auto wrecks
  • Dangerous products

Damages for Children

Children can be compensated for many similar losses that adults receive, such as pain and suffering, loss of life enjoyment, trauma, medical expenses, and treatment costs. They can’t be compensated for lost wages; however, they can be compensated for how their injury has affected their growth and development.
