How Are Personal Injury Lawsuits Different For Children?
As a parent or legal guardian, you have the right to file an accident claim for your child. As a child, your son or daughter cannot file a lawsuit. However, a skilled New York City personal injury attorney from The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny can help you file a claim or lawsuit on their behalf. Injuries to children bring a variety of unique legal issues to the table, such as the statute of limitations for personal injuries to minors. According to New York law, you must file a lawsuit within three years of the child’s 18th birthday. Typical personal injury cases can be filed within three years of discovery.
