Filing Premises Liability Claims on Behalf of Children in the Bronx

If you are a parent, your child is the most important thing in your life. For this very reason, if your child was injured in an accident due to no fault of his or her own, there is a very good chance that you are now looking to hold the liable party responsible for their actions. Fortunately, under the right circumstances, you can. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Bronx personal injury lawyer to learn more about these cases and how our firm can assist you through every step of the premises liability claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What should I do after witnessing my child sustain an injury on someone else’s property?

The first thing you should do is, of course, ensure that your child is okay. From here, you should quickly call the police to the scene of the accident, as they will send medical services to treat your child. You should also quickly photograph the scene of the accident and ask anyone who saw the accident for their name, phone number, and email address so they may corroborate your future claim. After your child is treated and in stable condition, ensure you retain the services of a knowledgeable Bronx personal injury lawyer who can work to prove your personal injury claim.

Am I allowed to file a premises liability claim on behalf of my child?

Yes, you are. If your child is injured in an accident, you can sue for financial compensation on his or her behalf. These personal injury claims are generally two-fold; when you sue someone for your child’s injury, you can sue for both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages deal with the financial cost of an accident, such as the cost of medical bills. surgeries, and more. However, on the other hand, non-economic damages deal with intangible yet very real damages, such as pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, and more. Ensure that you file your personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is, generally, three years, meaning you will have three years from the date of your child’s accident to sue. Our firm can help you today.
