Can I Sue on Behalf of My Child if He is Injured in Manhattan?

As a parent, there is nothing worse than seeing something happen to your child. However, if your child was recently injured in an accident, the time to act is now. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Manhattan personal injury attorney to learn more about how our firm can help sue on behalf of your child if he or she has been injured in an accident. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What should I do if my child is injured on someone else’s property?

If your child is injured on someone else’s property, you should work to document the incident as best as you can. This means taking pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused the accident, notifying the property owner of the accident, asking witnesses for their contact information, and ensuring your child receives immediate medical treatment. You should then retain the services of an experienced Manhattan personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

How can I sue on behalf of my child?

Personal injury claims on behalf of children generally have two parts. To start, you will sue for economic damages, such as the cost of hospital bills, therapy, and more. Additionally, you will most likely also sue for noneconomic damages, which are damages such as pain and suffering, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, and more. Rather obviously, any injury to your child is a sensitive matter, which is why our compassionate firm will work to resolve the matter as carefully and efficiently as possible so your child can recover and you can both go on living your lives.

How long will I have to file a premises liability claim in Manhattan?

If your child is injured on someone else’s property in Manhattan, you will have to file your premises liability claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York is, generally, three years, which means that you will, generally, have three years from the date of your accident to sue. If you wait past the three-year mark, you will most likely be barred from suing. Our firm is here to help you through every step of the claims process ahead, starting today. All you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
